E-mail: email@example.com Clinically the dogs, to make an effective treatment for morbid condition diagnosis is crucial and this goal is achieved with the observation of the evolution and laboratory findings which intercurrent infections have been observed frequently. We report a case of clinical laboratory diagnosis in Babesia canis infection, Ehrlicha spp. associated with serological response to Neospora caninum in dogs. Thus proving the value of clinical examination, visualization of parasitic inclusions in leukocytes and erythrocytes in the serological diagnosis, thus demonstrating the need for greater attention to the diagnosis of multiple infections by different parasites.
