Osteomyelitis and septicemia secondary to Listeria monocytogenes in a young dog

  title={Osteomyelitis and septicemia secondary to Listeria monocytogenes in a young dog},
  author={J. Doolittle and L. Rasmussen},
  journal={Journal of Dairy, Veterinary \& Animal Research},
A previously healthy, two-year-old, male (intact) Labrador retriever weighing 25kg (55lb) presented with a three-month history of an acute onset of right rear limb and right forelimb lameness. Radiographs obtained during the first examination with his primary care veterinarian revealed a proliferative lesion in the proximal femur at the level of the greater trochanter. A biopsy was obtained at that time. Histopathologic evaluation of this lesion was inconclusive, noting neutrophilic… Expand

An uncommon case: feline tail post-traumatic osteomyelitis
A case of old stray cat which developed post-traumatic tail OM, and endured it for years, is presented, an immuno-compromised, neglected, animal strongly infested with larvae of Aelurostrongylus abs trusus and oocistae of Isospora felis. Expand
Contamination factors associated with surviving bacteria in Thai commercial raw pet foods
The freezing and drying processes may reduce, but not eradicate, the bacterial contamination in raw pet food, which emphasize the need for quality control in the manufacturing process and show the importance of personal hygiene for the pet owner to reduce health risks. Expand


Generalised Listeria monocytogenes infection in a dog.
Widespread multifocal inflammatory lesions were found to be present in the lungs, liver, spleen, meninges, lymph nodes, adrenal glands and kidneys and Listeria monocytogenes was isolated in pure culture from these organs and tissues. Expand

Listeria monocytogenes osteomyelitis.
Certain characteristics of L monocytogenes may make cure difficult, particularly in a deep-seated focus such as bone, and may warrant special consideration when planning therapy. Expand
