Abstract

This report describes a case of a 7-year spayed female Vizsla dog, presented to the The Hebrew University Koret School of Veterinary Medicine (HUVTH) and diagnosed with infectious endocarditis due to Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae infection based on echocardiology, blood culture and putative secondary immune mediated hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia (Evans syndrome), and secondary left iliac artery thromboembolism. The putative exposure route to the bacterium, the prognosis and secondary complications are discussed, in light of a literature review.
