Systemic infl ammatory response syndrome and multiple Systemic infl ammatory response syndrome and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome in canine babesiosis organ dysfunction syndrome in canine babesiosis. ABSTRACT Canine babesiosis caused by Canine babesiosis caused by Babesia canis canis Babesia canis canis is one of the commonest canine diseases in(More)
BACKGROUND Canine babesiosis is a tick-borne disease that is caused by the haemoprotozoan parasites of the genus Babesia. There are limited data on serum proteomics in dogs, and none of the effect of babesiosis on the serum proteome. The aim of this study was to identify the potential serum biomarkers of babesiosis using proteomic techniques in order to(More)
aBstRaCt One of the numerous complications which could occur in babesiosis of dogs is disturbance in the coagulation system. The protein C pathway is one of the three major anticoagulant mechanisms and its activity was investigated in dogs with babesiosis, before and after therapy. We determined the decrease of protein C activity, which could be the(More)
White blood cell count and neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio in uncomplicated and complicated canine babesiosis caused by Babesia canis canis. aBstRact Canine babesiosis caused by B. canis is very common cause of morbidity and mortality of dogs in Croatia. Although white blood cell populations play a crucial role in the SIRS it has been poorly described in(More)
Across species overweight and obesity are associated with numerous disorders. To evaluate the occurrence of disturbances in terms of canine overweight and obesity, the authors undertook a prospective examination of hematological and biochemical parameters in 45 overweight and obese dogs, and compared the data with those obtained in 28 healthy normal-weight(More)
Serum levels of the chemokines keratinocyte chemoattractant and interleukin-8 in dogs naturally infected with Babesia canis canis. ABSTRACT Canine babesiosis, caused by Babesia canis canis, is one of the commonest canine diseases in Croatia. It is known that systemic infl ammatory response syndrome (SIRS), which is a hallmark of babesiosis, is regulated by(More)
Arterial blood gas analysis is an essential part of diagnosing and managing an animal's oxygenation and acid-base status. The aim of this study was to establish reference intervals for acid-base values and blood gases in clinically healthy dogs of different ages and sex using Stat Profi le Critical Care Xpress (CCX), and to provide an insight into the most(More)
Eastern Croatia (Kopački rit) is one of the most famous habitat of red deer (Cervus elaphus). Knowledge of normal electrolyte and mineral concentrations, together with other hematological and biochemical values, are essential for appropriate diagnosis of diseases and health control. The aim of this study was to determine mineral and electrolyte(More)
Antithrombin III (AT III) was measured in 15 dogs with Babesia canis infection and in 15 healthy dogs. Blood samples for control group and patients were taken before the therapy with imidocarb dipropionat and on the 1st and 5th days after the therapy. Measurements of AT III activity in canine plasma with thrombin dependent chromogenic substrate assay using(More)
and biochemical values of farmed red deer (and biochemical values of farmed red deer (Cervus elaphus Cervus elaphus)). ABSTRACT The objective of this study was to investigate the haematological and biochemical values of clinical signifi cance for red deer (Cervus elaphus) and provide data for farmed fawns. Blood samples were collected regularly from 34(More)
