Abstract

Canine hepatozoonosis caused by H. canis is usually recognized as a mild clinical disease characterized by mild anaemia and lethargy. Complicated clinical manifestations of H. Canis infection have been occasionally observed in dogs. This clinical communication describes acute hepatozoonosis in five dogs characterized by neurological symptoms, ataxia or paresis, emaciation and anaemia.
