Authors: Bonilla-Aldana DK, Pomares-Cantillo LH, Beltrán-Sánchez CA, Bettin-Martínez AC, Campo-Urbina ML, Rodriguez-Morales AJ, Pérez-Doria A Abstract Tick-borne pathogens are etiological agents of some zoonotic diseases, causing important consequences in animal and human health. These are emerging around the world, especially in tropical countries including Colombia. Domestic dogs play an essential role in the epidemiology of several zoonotic tick-borne pathogens. We performed the detection of bacteria from Anaplasmataceae family and parasites from the Piroplasmida order, in 85 domestic...

This study investigated the activity of cholinergic system enzymes and hepatic biofunction in dogs naturally infected withBabesia gibsoni. An infected group comprised 10 male dogs (stray and shepherd), and 10 healthy dogs as control were included in the study. Hematological parameters and activities of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) were measured. The biomarkers of hepatic function including the activities of various enzymes, total bilirubin levels, and albumin contents were also assessed. The infected animals revealed a significant decrease in RBC count, packed cell volume, hemoglobin concent...
