Abstract:
Canine ehrlichiosis also known tropical "canine pancytopenia and Nairobi bleeding disorder is an earmarked rickettesial disease caused by an intracytoplasmic parasite Ehrlichia canis, seen in circulating monocytes and lymphocytes. Itis characterised by fever, neurological, ocular signs and bleeding through natural orifices in the form of epistaxis, hematemesis and dermal petechiae, lymphadenomegaly, splenomegaly. Different treatment regimens have been tried with various success rate. Alternative therapy such as homeopathy have been tried and found to be effective, less toxic and cost effective. The present study was carried out in the Department of Veterinary Medicine, COVS & AH, Rewa. Therapeutic trial included four groups, Healthy group as control (Group I), Allopathy (Doxycycline) group (Group II), Homeopathy (Crotalus horridus-200C) group (Group III) and Allopathy + Homeopathy group (Group IV). The resolution of symptoms in dogs along with time duration for hemato-biochemical parameters to return to normal values, were used as criteria for deciding therapeutic efficacy of different drugs. Present study revealed that combination therapy, group III (Allopathy + Homeopathy) is better as compared to group I (Allopathy) or group II (Homeopathy) as the values of haemogram and thrombocyte count increased and the monocyte count, liver and values returned to normal at a faster rate in comparison to other groups.
