  • OBJECTIVE To compare results of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing of urine samples, serologic testing, and bacteriologic culture of urine to determine prevalence of urinary shedding of leptospires in dogs. DESIGN Serial case study. ANIMALS 500 dogs evaluated serially without regard to health status. PROCEDURE Urine samples were examined via PCR assay and bacteriologic culture for leptospires. Blood samples were analyzed for antibodies against serovars canicola, bratislava, pomona… CONTINUE READING
