Abstract:

The present study was carried out to investigate the haemato-biochemical changes and therapeutic management of canine babesiosis. Five male and 2 female dogs between 3-4 years old were presented to TVCC, Veterinary College, Durg and Private Clinic, Bhillai (Chhattisgarh) with a history of anorexia, tick infestation, lethargy, weakness and discolouration of the urine (haemoglobinuria). Blood samples were collected from the study group animals for the estimation of haemao-biochemical parameters. Haemoglobin, PCV, TEC and platelets were significantly reduced in affected dogs when compared to the healthy control. There was significant elevation of BUN, creatinine, ALT and globulin along with significant decrease in the total protein and serum albumin levels in the affected dogs. Microscopic examination of blood smear revealed pyriform shaped Babesia canis and oval or signet ring form Babesia gibsoni organisms was confirmed in affected animals. The infected dogs were administered single dose of inj imidocarb dipropionate (imizol®) @ 5 mg/kg BW deep IM along with other supportive treatment. Restoration of haemato-biochemical parameters were observed on 15th day of post treatment and were within normal physiological limits. Blood smears from the affected dogs were found to be negative after 48 hours of imizol® administration suggestive of absence of infection.
