Bartonella infection in animals: carriership, reservoir potential, pathogenicity, and zoonotic potential for human infection.
Considering the extensive animal reservoirs and the large number of insects that have been implicated in the transmission of Bartonella spp.
Antimicrobial Use Guidelines for Treatment of Urinary Tract Disease in Dogs and Cats: Antimicrobial Guidelines Working Group of the International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases
Urinary tract disease is a common reason for use (and likely misuse, improper use, and overuse) of antimicrobials in dogs and cats. There is a lack of comprehensive treatment guidelines such as those
Tick-borne infectious diseases of dogs.
Rapid Identification and Differentiation ofBartonella Species Using a Single-Step PCR Assay
The single-step assay described in the report expedites PCR-based detection and differentiation of medically relevant Bartonella species and allows differentiation without the necessity of restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis or sequencing of the amplified product.
Development and Evaluation of a Seminested PCR for Detection and Differentiation of Babesia gibsoni (Asian Genotype) and B. canis DNA in Canine Blood Samples
The seminested PCR test was able to detect and discriminate B. gibsoni (Asian genotype), B.Canis subsp.
Bartonella Spp. in Pets and Effect on Human Health
Pets represent a large reservoir for human infection and can be a source of infection for humans and animals alike.
Bartonellosis: an emerging infectious disease of zoonotic importance to animals and human beings.
A review of clinically relevant observations related to Bartonella species as emerging pathogens in veterinary and human medicine to provide a review of clinical relevant observations.
Consensus statement on ehrlichial disease of small animals from the infectious disease study group of the ACVIM. American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
It is hoped this consensus statement will assist veterinarians in the management of their patients with ehrlichiosis and provide new tools for the assessment of treatment.
Diarrhea associated with trichomonosis in cats.
The findings suggest that trichomonosis may be a cofactor in development of diarrhea in young cats, and clinical features, course of illness, and treatment outcome of cats with diarrhea and concurrent infection with Trichomonas organisms are established.
Ecological fitness and strategies of adaptation of Bartonella species to their hosts and vectors☆
Bacterial type IV secretion systems, which are supra-molecular transporters ancestrally related to bacterial conjugation systems, represent crucial pathogenicity factors that have contributed to a radial expansion of the Bartonella lineage in nature by facilitating adaptation to unique mammalian hosts.
