A 5 years old male Rottweiler was presented to Veterinary Clinical Complex, Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, West Bengal University of Animal & Fishery Sciences, Kolkata with clinical signs of high-rise of temperature (105 °F), anorexia, extreme dullness, nausea, and disinclination to move. Affected dog had elevated heart rate (158 per minute) and respiration rate (57 per minute). Blood smear examination revealed that dog was positive for Babesia gibsoni. Present communication revealed haematobiochemical alterations comprised of hypohaemoglobinaemia, erythrocytopaenia, thrombocytopaenia, leucocytosis, elevated aminotransferase activities, BUN, creatinine, bilirubin and hypoglycaemia. The dog was treated with two consecutive doses of Imidocarb dipropionate at 14 days interval in combination with fluid therapy, doxycycline and hematinic for 21 days. Complete follow up of the case exhibited successful clinical recovery of the dog within three weeks.
