Anaplasmosis is a vector-borne zoonosis which affects different domestic and wild species, including humans. The available data for the distribution of the disease in stray dogs from different parts of Bulgaria is quite insufficient. The aim of the study is to introduce the results of the serological examination of 159 stray dogs from Sofia district for 2017. Thirty of them (18.87%) were positive for specific antibodies determined through chromatographic immunoassay. Forty percent of the positive dogs were accompanied by some hematological or biochemical alterations typical of anaplasmosis.
