1Ankara Üniversitesi, Veteriner Fakültesi, Biyokimya Anabilim Dalı, TR-06110 Dışkapı/ Ankara - TÜRKİYE DOI : 10.9775/kvfd.2016.16771 In this study, it is aimed to evaluate the patient"s systemic inflammatory condition, by estimating CRP, albumin, total protein values and CBC. These results were compared with inflammatory condition of the gums. In this study, a total of 20 dogs, including 10 dogs with gingivitis, and 10 healthy dogs, were used. Diagnosis was established based on the clinical findings (dental plaque, redness and edema in the gum). In history, the owners was asked if any oral care application was performed after each meal (drinking water, brushing dog"s teeth, eating dental care food or giving chewing material), and if there is any mouth-related complaints (chewing difficulty, excessive saliva flow and halitosis). On physical examination; body temperature, pulse, and respiration rates were detected, submandibular lymph node was examined. From each patient and healthy dog, 5 mL blood to the tubes without coagulant, and 2 mL blood to the tubes with EDTA were taken. CRP, albumin and total protein values, and CBC were evaluated by comparing with those in healthy ones. Based on the clinical findings, mild-to-moderate gingivitis was diagnosed in patients. It was learned that patients have difficulty in chewing hard food, have halitosis and no special oral care application was done in patients after each meal, and have dental plaques. In physical examination, all of the patients have dental plaque, gingival redness and edema and halitosis. Body temperature, respiratory and pulse rates are within normal limits. There was no adenopathy in submandibular lymph node and no problems with the gums in healthy dogs. In the dogs with mild-to-moderate gingivitis and with no submandibular lymph node growth, no statistically significant changes were found in CRP, albumin, total protein values and the CBC.
