Sažetak
Infection with Hepatozooon canis has been described recently in 11.8% of Croatian dogs. Haematological and biochemical analyses of 14 apparently asymptomatic, but Hepatozoon-positive dogs were performed for the first time in Croatia. Haematological analyses showed severe eosinophilia in 9 cases (64.3%), leukocytosis in 5 (35.7%), neutrophilia in 3 (21.4%), decreased values of HCT and HGB in 2 (14.3%), monocytosis in 3 (21.4%), lymphocytosis in 6 (42.9%), thrombocytopenia in 2 (14.3%) and thrombocytosis in 3 cases (21.4%), where platelet aggregates were detected. Biochemical analyses of dog sera demonstrated highly increased ALP in 7 (50%) and ALT and CK in 2 dogs (14.3% each). AST and GGT were slightly increased in 2 (21.4%) samples. Also, β1-hyperglobulinemia, β1-hypoglobulinemia and γ-hypoglobulinemia were detected in certain samples (28.6%, 21.4% and 92.9%, respectively). Many changes in biochemical and hematological parameters in this study correlate with previous researches, but some of them show opposite trend. We conclude that clinical signs and laboratory findings in the initial phase of Hepatozoon infection, or in the infection of weak intensity, are quite unspecific and similar to those observed in other diseases commonly found in dogs.
