Abstract:

Pup mortality during parturition and also in the neonatal period or even later is a significant problem that is poorly documented in the veterinary literature.  Out of 77 pups died during the one year period, four (5.19 percent) ehrlichiosis belonged to 27 to 90 days age. Anorexia, dullness, vomiting, diarrhoea, icterus, and petechiae on the ventral abdomen were observed. Morulae were observed in monocytes/macrophages in the blood and splenic impression smears. Leucopaenia, monocytosis, azotaemia, hypoproteinemia and hypoalbuminaemia were observed. Haemoperitoneum, haemothorax, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, thickening of gall bladder, pulmonary edema and haemorrhage, renal cortical discoloration and prominent cortico-medullary junction were observed. Gastric oedema, subacute enteritis, centrilobular necrosis, degeneration of hepatocytes, biliary hyperplasia, myocarditis, interstitial nephritis, lymph node and splenic plasmacytosis were also observed.
