Serum hyperviscosity syndrome associated with Ehrlichia canis infection in a dog



Serum hyperviscosity syndrome associated with Ehrlichia canis infection in a dog



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 183(9): 1011-2, 964



A 10-year-old male Lhasa Apso was examined because of pyrexia, vomiting, weight loss, lethargy, and disorientation. The clinical and laboratory findings were supportive of a diagnosis of serum hyperviscosity syndrome associated with an Ehrlichia canis infection. After tetracycline therapy the serum hyperviscosity syndrome and E. canis infection were successfully resolved.
