原始语种摘要: Background:(#br) The previous work on canine babesiosis revealed hypokalaemia and increased fractional excretion of potassium in infected dogs suggesting a role for aldosterone in the loss of potassium via the kidneys in affected dogs. Moreover, hypotension, which is one of the complications of canine babesiosis leading to renal failure, may induce secondary hyperaldosteronism.(#br)Animals and methods: (#br)In this study, the serum aldosterone concentration was determined in 14 dogs infected with Babesia canis . The Mann–Whitney U test was used to compare serum aldosterone concentration and blood pressure between these dogs and 10 healthy dogs. Spearman's rank correlations between serum aldosterone concentration and blood pressure and between serum aldosterone and urea and creatinine...
