Abstract:

A 6 month old Labrador pup was presented to the Critical Care Unit of Madras Veterinary College Teaching Hospital with the history of anorexia, vomiting and diarrhea for two days. Clinical examination revealed poor hair coat, blanched mucous membranes and hemorrhagic diarrhoea. Hematological and serum biochemical parameters showed severe anaemia, leukocytosis and hypoproteinemia. Faecal floatation examination revealed eggs of Ancylostoma caninum. The pup was stabilized with whole blood transfusion, fluids, antibiotics, amino acid injections, hematinics and treated with anthelminthic medications. The animal responded well to the treatment.


Keywords: Ancylostomosis, Anaemia, Blood transfusion, Anthelminthic.
