The present study was conducted in Veterinary Clinical Complex, College of Veterinary Science, Tirupati over a period of nine months to diagnose the Babesia infection. 235 dogs suspected for babesiosis were collected and subjected for diagnosis using conventional and molecular techniques. Out of 235 samples examined by conventional microscopy of Giemsa stained blood smears revealed eleven positive samples which includes Babesia gibsoni (10) and Babesia canis (1) whereas with polymerase chain reaction 20 samples showed amplicons of 671 bp and 3 samples showed amplicons of 450 bp indicative of Babesia gibsoni and Babesia canis respectively.

Keywords: Babesia gibsoni, Babesia canis, Diagnosis, Microscopy, Polymerase chain reaction
