Heterobilharzia americana infection and hypercalcemia in a dog: a case report

, : Heterobilharzia americana infection and hypercalcemia in a dog: a case report. Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association 23(1): 35-40

Heterobilharzia americana infection was diagnosed in a hound. Clinical signs and physical findings included chronic intermitten bloody diarrhoea, weight loss, and palpable firm, thickened small intestines. Laboratory findings showed mild anaemia, hypoalbuminaemia, hyperproteinaemia, proteinuria, and hypercalcaemia. Contrast radiography demonstrated an infiltrative process involving the small intestine.
