Abstract:
Canine Babesiosis is a clinically significant and geographically widespread haemoprotozoan disease of domesticated dogs and wild canids. The recent climatic changes and the humid climate prevailing in plain regions of Kerala have led to an increase in vector tick population resulting in greater incidence of canine babesiosis. The clinical manifestations range from mild illness to serious disease depending on the virulence of species, nutritional status, age and immune status. Uncomplicated clinical cases have been suggested to be a consequence of hemolysis while complicated cases have been suggested to be a consequence of the development of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Typical symptoms include fever, anemia, pallor, jaundice, hemoglobinuria, splenomegaly and weakness. The diagnosis of Babesiosis is made by demonstrating Babesia gibsoni (1.5-2.5 micrometer, signet ring shaped) occur as a single piroplasm in infected erythrocytes. The primary therapeutic aim in the treatment of Babesiosis is the reversal of life-threatening anemia through blood transfusion and elimination of parasite with specific anti babesial drugs. The aim of this case study is to analyze the successful medical management of Babesia gibsoni infection in dogs.
