The present study documents the haematological and serum biochemical parameters in cutaneous vasculitis in dogs. Cutaneous vasculitis is the inflammation of blood vessels of dermis and subcutaneous tissue. Blood samples were collected from the ten cutaneous vasculitis positive animals and subjected for haematobiochemical estimations. Haematological parameters revealed anaemia, granulocytosis and increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Serum biochemistry revealed hypoalbuminaemia, hyperglobulinaemia with normal total protein concentration.
Key words: Vasculitis, Cutaneous vasculitis, anaemia, hypoalbuminaemia, hyperglobulinaemia.
