Abstract:
Canine ehrlichiosis is an important and potentially life threatening disease in India caused by <em>E. canis</em>. Canine ehrlichiosis was diagnosed in a Dalmatian dog based on clinical symptoms, Haemato-biochemical findings and cytological evidence of <em>Ehrlichia canis</em> in freshly prepared blood smears. In the present study the Hemato-biochemical alterations were observed. It was observed that total erythrocyte count (TEC), hemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume and platelet count were reduced and increase was reported in alanine transaminase (ALT), aspartate transaminase (AST). The dog was treated with Imidocarb and supportive therapy. The whole blood transfusion was done due to severe anemia. The dog was administered with 150 ml of whole blood and post blood transfusion Haemato-biochemical values showed marked improvement.
