Results of susceptibility tests of clinical isolates of animal pathogens are periodically summarized and reported by the Animal Health Service. However, these results are based upon qualitative test methods. In the present paper results of quantitative susceptibility tests of twelve antibacterial agents against Mannheimia haemolytica (MHA) and Pasteurella(More)
In this study, the technical performance of culture, two commercially available polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, rapid plate agglutination (RPA) test, hemagglutination inhibition (HI) test, and eight commercially available enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) were compared for the detection of avian mycoplasma infections from 3 days(More)
Serum concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP) in dogs with various diseases or undergoing various procedures were measured by specific immunoassay. In 20 healthy dogs from various sources, values were all less than 5 mg/L, but in 22 healthy dogs from a single source, values ranged from less than 5 mg/L in 14 dogs and from 8 to 67 mg/L in 8 dogs.(More)
Campylobacter fetus subsp. jejuni was recovered as the sole bacterial pathogen from 31% of 0- to 8-month-old children with acute gastroenteritis and from 5% of asymptomatic children (P less than 0.05). In children 8 to 24 months old, the respective recovery rates were 38 and 40%. With the exception of one case of simultaneous bacteremia, the clinical course(More)
This study describes a field trial in which 80 commercial layer flocks, with an increased risk of Salmonella enteritidis (SE) infection and placed on farms with a certified Standardized Biosecurity Programme (SBP) or a request for a SBP certificate, were vaccinated with a vaccine based on a live attenuated Salmonella gallinarum (SG) 9R strain. An evaluation(More)
A Leptospira interrogans serogroup australis serovar lora infection in a stud farm is reported. During three successive years (1984-1986) clinical leptospirosis with a severe often rapid, fatal course was seen in 12 foals. Clinical examination revealed severe respiratory distress, depression and pyrexia. Other symptoms were diarrhea (2), jaundice (1), and(More)

The epidemiology of canine leptospirosis has been examined in a limited study in the Netherlands from 1969 through 1982. Leptospira interrogans serotype icterohaemorrhagiae and canicola were found to be the only serotypes causing clinical leptospirosis. However, positive agglutination titres to the serotypes grippotyphosa, bratislava, poi and ballum have(More)
The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of tilmicosin and oxytetracycline was determined for Pasteurella haemolytica isolated from Dutch cattle in 1991. The agar dilution method was used. Of the Pasteurella haemolytica strains examined, 96% (24) had a MIC for tilmicosin of 2 micrograms/ml or lower; in one strain the MIC was 8 micrograms/ml. The MIC for(More)
The tuberculin tine (old tuberculin) and the Mantoux (stabilised purified protein derivative-PPD) tests were compared by using them in two simultaneous skin tests on patients with tuberculosis. The tine is sterile, disposable, and easy to administer and the agreement between the two tests was satisfactory. The tuberculin tine test is recommended as a useful(More)
