Abstract: This paper reports a rare and incidental finding of Microfilaria in a dog by clinical examination and cutaneous cytology. A 11 years old Rajapalayam male dog was presented to the Small Animal Clinic, Surgery unit for treatment of a swelling in the forearm region. FNAC was performed to identify the presence of neoplastic cells. However, Microfilaria organisms were identified in the cytology sediment stained by Leishman Giemsa stain. Subsequent to it blood smear was screened, which showed the presence of Microfilaria organisms with anemic changes.
