Abstract:
Leptospirosis is a zoonotic re-emerging disease and is probably the most widespread zoonotic disease in the world. A retrospective study of data from clinical records of veterinary college hospital was undertaken to determine the haematological and biochemical alterations in leptospirosis disease in Hassan from 2017 to 2018. A total of 30 dogs infected with canine leptospirosis presented in Small Animal Clinics of Veterinary college hospital were diagnosed by Dark field microscopy in a period of one year. The commonly observed clinical signs in affected dogs were lethargy, inappettance, vomition and polyuria. Major alteration in haematological profile were overall lower levels of haemoglobin (6.1 ± 2.0 g/dl), TLC (30.7 ± 1.9 x 106 /mm3), PCV (18.7 ± 0.5 %) values and platelet count (199.3 ± 6.3 x 103 /μL) in German shepherd dog.
