Abstract:
The present study was carried out to investigate the hematological changes in bacterial lower urinary tract infection (cystitis) of geriatric dogs. Out of a total 7280 adult (>6yrs) dogs, 620 geriatric dogs were reported with various diseases conditions and out of which, 362 dogs that were showing the clinical signs indicative of lower urinary tract disorders (LUTD), such as hematuria, pollakiuria, periuria, stranguria, dysuria and foul smelling urine were taken up for detailed study. Subsequently, 134 geriatric dogs were diagnosed with bacterial lower urinary tract infections (cystitis). Blood samples were collected from the study group animals for the estimation of various hematological parameters. Dogs affected with BUTI had a haemogram (HB: 11.23±0.18 g/dl, TEC: 5.28±0.17 X106/µl and PCV: 37.41±0.28%) that was non-significantly reduced when compared to apparently healthy dogs. Significant (p < 0.05) elevation of total leucocyte count (16.74±0.24 X103/µl) and neutrophils (80.16±0.50%) was noticed.
