Sporulated oocysts ofEimeria acervulina were administered orally to cage-housed broilers at a dose of 3.5×105 resulted in mild subclinical coccidiosis.Clostridium perfringens incorporated in feed at a level of 2.5×108 organisms/g. produced lesions characteristic of necrotic enteritis. Mortality of 8% (7/80) occurred in birds fed a ration inoculated withCl.(More)
Dactylaria gallopava was isolated from brain tissue of 1-to-3-week-old quail chicks. Successive batches demonstrated elevated (15-20%) mortality preceded by incoordination and lateral recumbency. Chicks exhibited cerebellar and cerebral encephalitis characterized by brown-red discoloration of affected brain tissue. Decontamination of setters and hatchers(More)
Encephalitis, lymphoid tissue depletion and secondary infections occurred over a 5-yr-period in Holstein cows infected with bovine immunodeficiency virus (BIV). There were 59 cattle studied, the majority during 1991, when a severe environmental stress occurred, each with one or more primary causes of death, natural or by euthanasia, and most with several(More)
Esophagotomies were performed on 36 dogs and closed with 3-0 polydioxanone in double-layer simple interrupted, single-layer simple interrupted, or single-layer simple continuous patterns. The operative time was shortest for single-layer simple continuous closure, followed by single-layer simple interrupted and double-layer simple interrupted, respectively.(More)
Premature ventricular contractions and ventricular tachycardia were detected in 10 dogs 1 to 48 hours after trauma. All dogs were treated aggressively if the arrhythmias became severe. One dog died, 8 were discharged with stable cardiac rhythm, and 1 was euthanatized. Necropsy revealed gross and microscopic lesions of acute myocardial necrosis, probably of(More)
Chronic chondritis of the arytenoid cartilage was diagnosed in 7 male Thoroughbred horses examined for obstructive upper airway disorders. The history of the cases was characterized by a 3- to 6-month progression of exercise intolerance and inspiratory dyspnea during exercise. Endoscopy revealed marked asymmetry of the rima glottidis, partial or complete(More)
The accumulation of various T cell subsets in Bcg-susceptible (C57BL/6) and- resistant (C3H/HeN) strains of mice were compared following an intraperitoneal infection with Mycobacterium paratuberculosis. Groups of mice from both strains were killed at 3, 5, 10, 15, 30, and 150 days after infection and lymphocytes were harvested from the peritoneal exudate(More)
Anthelmintic trails, conducted with albendazole, fenbendazole and ivermectin for efficacy against gastrointestinal nematodes, principally inhibited early fourth larval stages of Ostertagia ostertagi in naturally infected cattle. Cattle wee slaughtered seven to 20 days after treatment. O ostertagi was the predominant abomasal nematode recovered with(More)
Since 1989, the LSU dairy herd, with its high seroprevalence of BIV, was recognized to have a high incidence of common diseases that reduced the economic viability of the dairy. The herd had a high percentage of cows with encephalitis associated with depression and stupor, alteration of the immune system associated with secondary bacterial infections, and(More)
