The outbreak of canine babesiosis
in Essex three years ago and the detection of brown dog ticks in puppies imported from Cyprus in 2014 are just two examples of the risk.
Clinico-hematological data were analyzed with respect to single or concurrent infections, age, breed and sex predisposition as well as seasonal incidence of canine babesiosis
. A total of 250 cases formed the material for the epidemiological study.
The mixed acid based disturbances of severe canine babesiosis
In this study, highest occurrence of canine babesiosis
was in the age group 3-5 years followed by those below 3 years; Babesia infection has been known to rise with the age, reaching its peak between the age of 3 and 5 years and then peter out .
In this work, we have found different species of ticks infesting dogs in two different bioclimatic region in the north-eastern Algeria, and the diagnosis in the laboratory of canine babesiosis
was made for dogs with presented the symptoms of the disease.
Low count of thrombocyte in canine babesiosis
was also reported by many workers (Camacho et al., 2001; Radi et al., 2004; Furlanello et al., 2005; Bourdoiseau, 2006; Baric Rafaj et al., 2007; Mathe et al., 2007; Irwin, 2009; Trotta et al., 2009) might be due to coagulopathic consumption in disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), splenic sequestration in splenomegaly and immune mediated platelet destruction.
