Abstract:
An intra-erythrocytic protozoan known as Babesia canis and Babesia gibsoni causes babesiosis in dogs, which is prevalent in many countries of the world, including India. It occurs in subclinical, per-acute, acute, or chronic forms with the wide range of inconsistent clinical manifestations or presentations. In order to establish an effective treatment plan for canine babesiosis, it is necessary to identify the causal organism. Hence, the present study was designed to record the prevalence of canine babesiosis in the present area of study from where scanty previously documented reports were observed. The prevalence of canine babesiosis was found to be 33.17 per cent overall in this study (68/205) with a prevalence of B. canis at 16.17 per cent and a prevalence of B. gibsoni at 83.82 per cent. Babesiosis was found to be more common from April to October, with isolated cases occurring at other times of the year. In the present study B. gibsoni was found to be the most prevalent species in this investigation. The occurrence of babesiosis in male and female animals was found to be 48.52% and 51.47% respectively.
