Parvathy EK, Usha Narayana Pillai, N Madhavan Unny, Sindhu K Rajan and PV Tresamol
Dogs presented to the University Veterinary Hospitals, Mannuthy and Kokkalai from different parts of Kerala with clinical signs suggestive of babesiosis viz., weakness, anorexia, pallor of mucous membranes and fever were formed the materials for the present study. Animals were subjected to blood smear and representative samples were collected for semi- nested PCR. Twenty four dogs positive for B. gibsoni by PCR and blood smear examination were selected for the study. Haematological analysis of affected dogs revealed macrocytic normochromic regenerative anaemia, anisocytosis, thrombocytopenia, leucocytosis with lymphocytopenia and monocytosis.
