Abstract:

Coccidioidomycosis a zoonotic fungal infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Coccidioides immitis acquiring from environment through the risk of exposure to infectious arthrospores with subclinical or clinical which is affecting the dogs reared in house with less exposure to sun. The present report describes the disseminated form of coccidiomycosis in Labrador dogs which affected the cutaneous, osseous, cardiac, ocular, nervous system, or other organ with variable clinical symptoms and so far not recorded in this Cauvery Delta region of Tamilnadu. The diagnosis was established by fungal culture and identification by microscopy and clinical assessment. The microscopic demonstration of dysjunctors of arthrospores arrangement and the fungal isolation along with histopathological examination proved to be a useful tool in presumptive diagnosis of Coccidiomycosis in Labrador Dogs.
