Ehrlichiosis and polyarthritis in three dogs.

PMID:  3372339     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Three dogs admitted for evaluation of lameness were determined to be infected with a neutrophilic strain of Ehrlichia. Ehrlichia morulae were detected in low numbers in both synovial fluid and blood neutrophils. The dogs had rapid clinical improvement after appropriate antibiotic therapy. A diagnosis of canine ehrlichiosis easily could have been missed if morulae had not been identified. Ehrlichiosis should be considered in acutely lame dogs residing in areas enzootic for ehrlichiosis. A careful search for Ehrlichia morulae within synovial fluid and blood neutrophils should be performed. An E canis titer determination also may be helpful.
