Background: Vaccination and importation of dogs and cats are prohibited in the Galapagos, resulting in a uniquely isolated population. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of infectious diseases of dogs and cats that impact their health, could spill over to native wildlife, or sentinel diseases of concern to humans. Hypothesis: The isolation of dogs and cats in the Galapagos protects them from diseases common in mainland populations. Animals: Ninety‐five dogs and 52 cats…

TLDR
Blood, ocular and nasal samples were collected from each of 30 randomly caught stray dogs in the district of Mymensingh in Bangladesh from January to June 2010 to determine the prevalence of Canine distemper (CD), Canine adenovirus- 1, CAV-2, Canine influenza (CI) and Dirofilaria immitis (Heart worm infection = HWI) infection in stray dogs.

A survey on helminth parasites of dogs in Benin city, Edo State, Nigeria

TLDR
A study of the gastrointestinal helminth parasites of dogs in Benin City, Nigeria, was conducted between June and December 2010, and the age of dog was found to be a significant factor with the prevalence of the infection higher in young dogs.

Bartonella infections in cats and dogs including zoonotic aspects

TLDR
An update and European perspective on Bartonella infections in cats and dogs, including clinical, diagnostic, epidemiological, pathological, treatment and zoonotic aspects is provided.

SHORT COMMUNICATION: ANTIGENIC DETECTION OF CANINE PARAINFLUENZA VIRUS IN URBAN DOGS WITH RESPIRATORY DISEASE IN AHVAZ AREA, SOUTHWESTERN IRAN

TLDR
This study showed that Canine parainfluenza virus can be as a risk factor particularly for those dogs are in contact together in open environment and kennel dogs in Ahvaz area.

Genetic and serologic surveillance of canine (CIV) and equine (EIV) influenza virus in Nuevo León State, México

TLDR
The results unveil the prevalence of Influenza A virus in the population of horses and dogs in the state of Nuevo Leon, which could indicate a possible outbreak of equine and Canine Influenza in Mexico.

EPIDEMIOLOGY, PATHOLOGY, AND GENETIC ANALYSIS OF A CANINE DISTEMPER EPIDEMIC IN NAMIBIA

TLDR
This is the first description of an epidemic involving black-backed jackals in Namibia, demonstrating that this species has the capacity for rapid and large-scale dissemination of CDV.

Impact of canine control on the epidemiology of canine and human visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil.

TLDR
Although difficult and expensive, the public health dog control campaigns performed in Brazil reduced the incidence of ZVL and should be maintained since treatment of dogs is an unrealistic intervention, both because of its prohibitive cost and relatively poor effectiveness.

Biology and epidemiology of Toxoplasma gondii in man and animals

TLDR
Toxoplasma gondii is a coccidian parasite which utilizes felids as definitive hosts, and which has an unusually wide intermediate host range, and is one of the most common parasitic infections of man and other warm-blooded animals.

TLDR
It is suggested that stray dogs are potential reservoirs of Leptospira in Cali and underscored the need to study the epidemiology of this disease in Colombia.

A cross-sectional serodiagnostic survey of canine leishmaniasis due to Leishmania chagasi.

TLDR
The seroprevalence of canine Leishmania antibodies was investigated using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay as a screening test since its sensitivity was significantly higher than that of an indirect immunofluorescence assay, which found no correlation with the intracluster densities of canine populations, or with the distances from individual clusters to the town center.
