Abstract:

In the present study, a total of 33 clinical cases of microfilaraemic dogs various regions of Gujarat state were assessed for alterations in haemato-biochemical and mineral level changes. Microfilariae were detected using modified Knott technique and microfilariae of Dipetalonema (Acanthocheilonema) reconditum was more common (23 cases; 69.69%) than Dirofilaria immitis (10 cases; 30.30%). Apparently healthy asymptomatic ten dogs were kept as control. The haematological findings for different circulating microfilariae in the present study indicated highly significant (p≤0.01) decrease in Hb concentration and increase in lymphocyte percentage in Dirofilaria immitis group. Highly significant (p≤0.01) decrease in platelet count and monocyte percentage and, increase in eosinophil count was observed in both the groups as compared to control. Highly significant (p≤0.01) increase in total protein (TP) and globulin concentration in both the groups was reported as compared to control. Mineral estimation indicated a significant (p≤0.01) decrease in zinc (Zn) and increase in calcium (Ca) concentration in dogs suffering from Dipetalonema reconditum.
