A 10 day old female Great Dane pup carcass was brought with the history of dull,
depressed and sudden death. External examination revealed pale conjunctival mucous
membrane and slight prescapular lymph node enlargement. Grossly, subepicardial petechial
haemorrhages, congested lungs, intestine and meningeal blood vessels, enlarged pale liver,
slightly enlarged dark reddish kidney and swollen haemorrhagic mesenteric lymph nodes.
Peripheral and heart blood smears stained with Leishman & Giemsa (L&G) stain and
revealed the presence of large pleomorphic single, paired and multiple pear shaped forms
of Babesia canis in the erythrocytes.
