Basophil is a type of Granulocyte, White Blood Cell/ Leukocyte WBCs that provides immunity and defense for our bodies from viruses, bacteria, and foreign objects It is associated to interleukin IL-3, IL-5, and granulocyte-monocyte-colony stimulating factor GM-CSF[6] through a release of synthesis-storing Histamine and Heparin that occupies about 05-1% of the circulating WBCs Can also be characterized by an unsegmented/ bilobed shaped nucleus with purplish-black/ deep blue cytoplasmic granules It averages about 8-10 micrometer


Basophilia can be detected through a complete blood count CBC to determine if there is an abnormal amount in the bloodstream more than 10 billion basophils per liter of blood

Basophilia can also by diagnosed through a bone marrow biopsy, genetic testing to look for genetic mutations, or ultrasound to determine enlargement of the spleen


Basophilia is not likely to be treated directly Instead, treatments will focus on the person’s underlying medical treatment

Treatments for underlying medical conditions include:

  • Medications
  • Chemotherapy/ Radiation
  • Surgery to remove enlarged spleen


Eosinophilia and Basophilia are the most common abnormalities in dogs[7]
