To evaluate the quality and the diagnostic relevance of the radiographs of the reticular area obtained using an x-ray beam-limiting cone (LC), both conventional and LC images were analysed in 12 cows affected by traumatic reticuloperitonitis (TRP). The improvement in resolution, definition and contrast of the LC images and a clinical assessment of the diagnostic relevance of the procedure were scored. The use of LC improved the quality of the radiographs in 10 cases (83%) thanks to an improvemen...

Farmers in Bali live in close contact to pigs, a setting which favours transduction of leptospirosis to humans. Since little is known about the prevalence of different Leptosipro (L.) serovars in Bali, a serosurvey was initiated to identify Leptospira serovars predominating in domestic pigs. In 1999, a total of 484 sera from pigs on 138 farms in two geographically distinct provinces of Bali (Gianyar and Tabanan), Indonesia, were collected. Agglutinins against 7 serovars of pathogenic Leptospira ...

This report deals with an enzootic due to Salmonella Typhimurium in two free living Eurasian siskins (Spinus spinus Linnaeus, 1758). Other birds in the vicinity of the siskins were not affected. Clinical signs consisted of non-specific symptoms such as ruffled plumage, apathy and reduced food intake. During necropsy, gross lesions were enlarged livers with focal necrosis, pale spleens, enlarged kidneys, pneumonia and enteritis. Salmonella Typhimurium was isolated from internal organs in pure cul...

The objective of the present study was to investigate the role of heat shock proteins (Hsps) as potential stress response marker in several organs of transported pigs. Constitutive (Hsp90, Hsp70 and Hsp27) and inducible (Hsp72 and Hsp86) Hsps expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, liver and kidney of transported young pigs were investigated. The study comprised 13 German Landrace line pigs (mean weight, approx. 35 +/- 1 kg). Eight animals (n = 8) were transported for a period of 6 h, whereas the c...

A multicentre field study was conducted in accordance with VICH Guideline on Good Clinical Practice (VICH 2000) to confirm the efficacy and safety of a new formulation of cefquinome for the treatment of naturally occurring severe bacterial infections and septicaemia in foals. Thirty-nine foals suffering from severe bacterial infections (such as pneumonia, gastro-enteritis, arthritis, omphalitis, or wound infections) or acute septicaemia were treated twice daily with the test product (1 mg cefqui...

A 3-month-old female trotter foal was euthanized due to severe dyspnoea. Pathomorphologically a chronic granulomatous to necrotizing pneumonia was found and Rhodoccocus (R.) equi was isolated microbiologically. An immunohistological method using a murine monoclonal antibody against a 15-17 kDa antigen of virulent R. equi was established in formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue sections using various antigen retrieval techniques to optimize the staining results. Microwave treatment was most...
The study was aimed at determining the cause of a disease in a horse exhibiting symptoms of fever, joint effusion, weakness, and extravasations on the mucous membranes. Blood was drawn from the animal for haematological and biochemical molecular tests. The PCR technique revealed the presence of 16S RNA Ehrlichia spp. genetic material in the blood samples. DNA amplification by means of primers EHR 521 and EHR 747 gave a product with a volume of 247 bp. The sequence of the PCR product obtained sho...

The present study intended to investigate the compatibility of the orally applicated Salmonella Typhimurium live vaccine Salmoporc ® on day 3 and 21, respectively. Piglets which only received saline solution orally were used as negative control. During eight hours following vaccination, fecal consistency, body temperature as well as body condition were evaluated. Furthermore, in addition to the daily measures of body temperature and body condition, weekly weight controls as well as bacteriologic...

For many years, ruminant nutritionists and microbiologists have been interested in manipulating the microbial ecosystem of the rumen to improve production efficiency by domestic ruminants. Antibiotic ionophores have been used successfully for this purpose. However, the use of antibiotics in animal feeds has been banned in the European Union since January 2006 due to the risk of spreading antibiotic resistance. For this reason, scientists have become interested in evaluating other alternatives to...

The present study was undertaken to investigate the effects of type of ram presence (permanent vs. intermittent) on estrus onset, estrus duration and frequency of sexual behaviours in Kivircik ewes. During the breeding season, 20 multiparous Kivircik ewes were divided into two groups of permanent (PR) and intermittent (IR) presence of ram. Estrus was synchronized with fluorgestone acetate intravaginal sponges left for 14 days, plus an injection of 600 IU PMSG at the time of sponge removal. PR ew...
