Abstract:

In the present study 86 number of skin scrapings were collected from various breeds like Labrador retriever (n=32), German shepherd (n=21), Spitz (n=9), Dacshund (n=16), Mastiff (n=5), Boxer (n=3) and age groups from 6 months to, above 3 year with characteristics ring like lesions, alopecia, irregular patches of hair loss. All the dogs were presented to teaching veterinary clinical complex, Odisha veterinary college from December 2018 to June 2019.On routine identification of fungus out of 86 number of skin scrappings it was revealed that arthospores were present in 54 number of samples. The predominant fungal infection from the ringworm infected dog cases was found to be Microsporum species (48.15%). Microscopic examination with cotton blue stain and wet mount method by 10% aqueous solutions of potassium hydroxide was done for identification of dermatophytes. Highest percent of infection was noticed between 6month to one and half year aged groups of canine species, may be due to poor development of immunity. Highest prevalence of dermatomycosis was recorded in Labrador retriever (37.03%) followed by German shepherd breed (25.92%) of canine species. On disk diffusion method of antifungal susceptibility test it was found that Miconazole (10µg) was found to be highly sensitive followed by Ketoconazole (15µg), Clotrimazole (10µg).
