Abstract


The study was conducted to assess the prevalence of haemoprotozoan diseases in dogs at Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex of the College of Veterinary Science, Mhow (M.P.) during July 2018 to March 2019. Blood sample of 3500 suspected cases of haemoprotozoans affected dogs on the basis of clinical history were microscopically examined after Giemsa stain. The overall prevalence of haemoprotozoan disease was 2.48%. The highest prevalence of Ehrlichiosis (1.342%) was observed followed by Babesia (1.028%), Anaplasmosis (0.057%) and mixed infection (0.057%). The highest prevalence (4.03%) was found in the month of March followed by 3.52% in the month of August. Age wise study showed that the highest prevalence (3.57%) was found in above 18 months age, followed by (2.85%) 7 to 18 months. Sex wise prevalence revealed that males were more susceptible as compared to females.
