Abstract:

A male Dalmatian aged one year was presented with history of pyrexia, anorexia, lethargy and brownish urination. On clinical examination animal had high body temperature (40.1ºC), pale mucous membranes with petechiae and lymphadenopathy. Routine hematology showed anemia and examination of peripheral blood smear revealed the presence of piroplasms of Babesia gibsoni (+++). Triple therapy was initiated with Clindamycin @ 25mg/kg PO q 12h, Metronidazole @ 15mg/kg PO q 12h and Doxycycline @ 5mg/kg PO q 12h for 10days. On the tenth day the animal recovered completely and peripheral blood smear was negative for the parasitic infection. The present study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of triple therapy in natural infection of Babesia gibsoni in dog.
