ABSTRACT

The study was conducted in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, University of Ibadan in order to determine total number and patterns of presentation of the clinical cases in small animal cases to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, University of Ibadan. Case notes of the animals presented to the hospital over the period under study were used for this study. Many diseases were diagnosed from 2009 to 2013. A total of 3784 cases were presented. On the basis of yearly documentations, 632, 801, 694, 874 and 783 cases were presented for 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively. The pattern of presentation over this years dwindled contrary to the expectation of a yearly increase in case presentation rate. Endoparasitic conditions [39.43 % (n = 1492)] were the highest of the cases, vaccination and deworming (prophylaxis treatments) was 28.25 % (n = 1069), ectoparasitic conditions were 19.48% (n = 737), while the lowest categories presented were nervous conditions [0.05 % (n=2)], cardiac condition [0.05% (n=2)] and ear abnormalities [0.08% (n=3)]. For the endoparasitic and heamoparasitic conditions were helminthosis [28.04 % (n =1061)] and babesiosis [9.59% (n =363)]. Tick infestation and mange had the highest proportions of ectoparasitic cases with 11.05% (n=418) and 5.66% (n=214), respectively. Deworming, ARV and DHLPPiV were the major prophylactic cases with the following findings; 13.40%, 7.11% and 7.74% (n = 507, 269 and 293 respectively). Leptospirosis was the most important bacterial condition of the cases with proportion of 1.37 % (n =52). Enteritis also raised important concern with a value of 1.43 % (n=54). The pattern of cases presented and analyzed in this study is good for planning by the hospital for procurement of facilities and inputs, for evaluation of performance of the hospital, epidemiological survey, disease reporting and for planning effective preventive and control measures for infectious and zoonotic diseases.

Keywords: Ectoparasite, Endoparasite, Haemoparasite, Deworming and Vaccination.
