Abstract: Canine babesiosis is a common worldwide tickborne disease. Based on the examination of peripheral blood smears, two dogs were found to be positive for babesiosis. In case-1, the dog was presented with a history of fever, accompanied by inappetence and weakness whereas case-2 dog had fever, vomiting, anorexia and oliguria. Clinical examination of both the cases revealed pale and icteric mucous membrane, dehydration, high fever as well as presence of ticks on the body surface. Anemia, leucocytosis, and thrombocytopenia were found in the bloodwork. Creatinine, urea, ALT, AST, and total bilirubin levels were increased in the serum biochemical examination. Imidocarb dipropionate was used in conjunction with supportive therapy to treat both dogs. Case-1 recovered after treatment due to uncomplicated condition however case-2 did not respond to the treatment and died from acute renal failure brought on by babesiosis complication.
