There were no proper record of deworming and vaccination. Clinical examination revealed icteric conjunctival, gingival and penile mucous membrane, fever, depressed mentation, enlarged lymph node, tachycardia and tachypnea and slightly distended abdomen, Abdominal palpation and ultrasonographic examination revealed hepato-renal abnormality and Superficial lymph nodes (popliteal, and submandibular) were greatly enlarged. The hemato-biochemical report showed a marked reduction in Hb, TEC, PCV, hypoalbuminemia and elevated SGPT, SGOT, BUN, Creatinine and ALP level. Blood smear examination was negative for hemoprotozoan infection. Serum sample of the dogs was positive for Ab titre during MAT. Based on clinical signs and laboratory findings the case was diagnosed as Leptospirosis in dogs having hepato-renal complications.
