Abstract

A random sample of 112 cats admitted to three veterinary clinics as medical and surgical cases were diagnosed symptomatically and the blood diagnosed microscopically by the acridine orange staining technique for the presence of Haemobartonella felis. None of the 112 cats proved to be positive for the presence of H. felis as determined by the acridine orange staining technique or by symptomatic diagnosis. The results show that there was no incidence of H. felis in an observable state in the blood samples tested. The results also suggest that acridine orange may not be an adequate indicator for the presence of H. felis in the carrier state in cats.
