Delays between time of sampling and time of testing are common, therefore, the length of time that blood can be stored at various temperatures was evaluated for effects on cholinesterase activity. Six horses were treated with 16 g of trichlorfon per os, 6 horses were treated with 15 g of dichlorvos ...

For 3 California, USA, dairy herds with bulk tank somatic cell counts <200 000/ml, twice daily milking and no mastitis vaccine, 254 quarters with mild clinical mastitis were randomly assigned to 3 groups. Group A (n = 74) was treated with 62.5 mg of intramammary amoxicillin every 12 h for 3 milkings...

The objective of this field trial was to compare the effect of intrauterine (i.u.) antibiotic or intramuscular (i.m.) prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha) on time to pregnancy in dairy cows diagnosed with clinical endometritis between 20 and 33 days in milk (DIM). The case definition of endometritis ...

Background: Breast cancer in females and prostate cancer in males are two of the most common cancers in the United States, and the literature suggests that they share similar features. However, it is unknown whether the occurrence of these two cancers at the county level in the United States is corr...

The performance of flow cytometry (FC) was compared with immunofluorescence microscopy (IM) for detection of Giardia duodenalis in bovine feces. Samples from 36 adult dairy cows and 208 dairy calves were collected. Flow cytometry test characteristics were calculated using continuous, ordinal, and di...

A 6-page questionnaire was designed to collect information from owners of 134 horses diagnosed with C. pseudotuberculosis infection at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) between 1 July 1992 and 30 June 1994 and a further 800 control horses, to evaluate risk factors. The questio...

The welfare of animals in transit may be affected by driving events, such as acceleration, braking and cornering. The relationships between driving events and the behavioural responses of the animals were examined. A single-deck, non-articulated vehicle was with a video-recording system, GPS and tri...

For two large California dairy herds with twice daily milking, 171 infected quarters of lactating cows with mild clinical mastitis were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups. Group A (50 cows) was treated with 62.5 mg of intramammary amoxicillin every 12 h for three milkings. Group C (5...

West Nile virus (WNV) has spread across the North American continent, since its introduction in the summer of 1999. The virus first appeared in Canada in Ontario, Quebec, and Manitoba in 2001, Saskatchewan in 2002, and Alberta in 2003. At present, the virus is widespread in the southern portions of ...

The epidemiology and importance of coagulase negative staphylococcal (CNS) mastitis in Prince Edward Island had not been documented. To investigate this, a cohort of 84 cows at seven farms were quarter sampled eight times over a lactation, commencing with samples taken prior to drying off in the pre...

The recent detection of the invasive colonial tunicate Diplosoma listerianum in Havre- Aubert, Magdalen Islands (Quebec, Canada) in 2008, prompted the development of a molecular assay as a method to detect and monitor for the potential invasion of this species in Prince Edward Island. The aim of thi...

Evidence in the literature exists to support the theory that mastitis and intramammary infection (IMI) tend to cluster within herds, within cows, and within quarters, facts which may have overarching ramifications on mastitis management in modern dairy herds. Most previous studies, however, have bee...

The seroprevalence of Neospora caninum was compared among New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island in 1998, 1989, and 1979. In 1998, the seroprevalence was lowest in Prince Edward Island, where it was the same as in 1989. Neospora caninum was present in 1979, but at a lower prevalence.

Reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), virus isolation (VI) and indirect fluorescent antibody tests (IFAT) are three assays currently used by the salmon industry to identify fish infected with infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV). However, no data are available on the repeatabil...
