Abstract:

A Pomeranian female dog four year old weighing 10 kg with litter size 5 puppies of Labrador mix, was presented to Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC) Rajouri garden New Delhi, India, with history of whelped 7 days back, lameness, hyperthermia, anorexia and restlessness. Clinical examination revealed pyrexia (104.8ËšF), tachyponea (50 breaths/min), tachycardia (105 beats per minute), congested mucous membrane, hind limb muscle twitching, severe panting, ataxia and stiffness. The case was tentatively diagnosed as eclampsia on the basis of history and clinical signs which was later confirmed by hematology and electrolyte analysis. History also revealed that the main predisposing factors which cause eclampsia in dogs are poor management, poor nutrition, excessive milk production, increased litter size. The bitch was treated with, intravenous 10 ml of 10% Calcium gluconate and Belladonna-30 orally along with supportive therapy which shows positive response to treatment and uneventful recovery 3 days after treatment.


Keywords: Bellodona-30, Canine, Calcium gluconate, Puerperal tetany.
