Development and Evaluation of a Seminested PCR for Detection and Differentiation of Babesia gibsoni (Asian Genotype) and B. canis DNA in Canine Blood Samples
TLDR
The seminested PCR test was able to detect and discriminate B. gibsoni (Asian genotype), B.Canis subsp. Expand
Prevalence of and Risk Factors for Feline Tritrichomonas foetus and Giardia Infection
TLDR
Catteries in which T. foetus was identified were more likely to have had a recent history of diarrhea, historical diagnosis of coccidia infection in adult cats, and a decreased number of square feet of facility per cat. Expand
Diarrhea associated with trichomonosis in cats.
TLDR
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. Expand
Experimental infection of cats with Tritrichomonas foetus.
TLDR
After experimental inoculation in cats, T. foetus organisms colonize the ileum, cecum, and colon, reside in close contact with the epithelium, and are associated with transient diarrhea that is exacerbated by coexisting cryptosporidiosis but not treatment with prednisolone. Expand
Vector transmission of Bartonella species with emphasis on the potential for tick transmission
TLDR
A review of Bartonella transmission by sandflies, lice and fleas, the potential for transmission by other vectors, and data supporting transmission by ticks suggests there is substantial opportunity for the potential uptake of these blood‐borne bacteria by a variety of arthropod vectors that feed on animals and people. Expand
TRITRICHOMONAS FOETUS AND NOT PENTATRICHOMONAS HOMINIS IS THE ETIOLOGIC AGENT OF FELINE TRICHOMONAL DIARRHEA
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to determine the identity of this recently recognized flagellate by means of rRNA gene sequence analysis; restriction enzyme digest mapping; and light, transmission, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Expand
Outcome of cats with diarrhea and Tritrichomonas foetus infection.
TLDR
Results suggested chronic T. foetus-associated diarrhea in most cats is likely to resolve spontaneously within 2 years of onset, and attempts to treat cats with T.foetus infection may result in prolongation of time to resolution of diarrhea. Expand
Infectious Diseases of Dogs and Cats on Isabela Island, Galapagos
TLDR
Despite their relative seclusion from the rest of the world, cats and dogs of Isabela were exposed to many pathogens found in mainland South America, and a reservoir of susceptible animals remains vulnerable to new disease introductions. Expand
Geographic distribution of babesiosis among dogs in the United States and association with dog bites: 150 cases (2000-2003).
TLDR
Testing for babesiosis should be pursued in dogs with clinicopathologic abnormalities consistent with immune-mediated hemolytic anemia or thrombocytopenia, particularly if there is a history of a recent dog bite. Expand
Babesia gibsoni infections in dogs from North Carolina.
The recognition of canine babesiosis in North Carolina caused by Babesia gibsoni documents the expansion of the previously reported endemic area of this disease. Clinical signs ranged from severeExpand
