Mycoplasmas of Goats and Sheep
TLDR
The goat is an important commodity in many areas of the world, where it is kept as a source of meat, milk, and fiber and among the important goat diseases, mycoplasmal infections result in significant losses on the African continent and in countries such as Greece, France, and Spain. Expand
Ixodes pacificus (Acari: Ixodidae) as a vector of Ehrlichia equi (Rickettsiales: Ehrlichieae).
TLDR
Experimental transmission of E. equi from infected to susceptible horses through bites of western blacklegged ticks, Ixodes pacificus is reported, which poses previously unrecognized and serious health risks to humans and animals. Expand
Occurrence and Species of Lice on Free-living and Captive Raptors in California
Abstract This study determined the occurrence and identity of chewing lice (Mallophaga) on 35 clinically healthy raptors presented with traumatic injuries at the California Raptor Center during theExpand
Caprine mycoplasmosis: widespread infection in goats with Mycoplasma mycoides subsp mycoides (large-colony type).
TLDR
It appears that goats can acquire the infection through ingestion, and the organism seems to be widespread in the United States. Expand
Q fever vaccination of sheep: challenge of immunity in ewes.
TLDR
Shedding of rickettsiae was measurably reduced, but was not prevented in vaccinated groups, as shown by inoculating ewes' placental tissues, amniotic fluid, and colostrum into mice, as well as by histopathologic lesions of placental tissue. Expand
Experimental oral inoculations in birds to evaluate potential definitive hosts of Neospora caninum.
TLDR
It was concluded that the bird species tested are not likely to be definitive hosts of N. caninum because they were not infective to BALB/c mice. Expand
Morbidity and mortality in free-living raptorial birds of Northern California: a retrospective study, 1983-1994
TLDR
A 12-year (1983-1994) retrospective study was conducted to determine the causes of morbidity and mortality in free-living raptorial birds of northern California and indicated an under- lying disease was present before the birds succumbed to an acute, lethal, traumatic incident. Expand
COPROLOGIC SURVEY OF INTERNAL PARASITES OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA RAPTORS
TLDR
Infection with internal parasites was considered common in Northern California raptors, and strigiforms were more commonly infected than were falconiforms. Expand
Enzyme immunoassay for surveillance of Q fever.
TLDR
Results indicate that ELISA should be the test of choice for mass screening and surveillance of animals when Q fever is a suspected biohazard. Expand
The external ear canal of goats and other animals as a mycoplasma habitat
TLDR
In M. putrefaciens infected goats, the mycoplasma could not be recovered at necropsy from the ear canal 7–10 days following a state of septicemia, and a likely reason appears to be the seeding of the canal by mites as they transfer from goat to goat, which apparently occurs with ease. Expand
