LEPTOSPIROSIS CANINA by Mariai Restrepo on Prezi

As a result, only limited data on the epidemiology of the infection in feline populations is available. Rapid diagnostic assays must be accurate, user-friendly, relatively inexpensive, easy to interpret and stable under extreme conditions. A serological survey of leptospiral infection of cats in Ahvaz, south western of Iran.

A serological survey of antibodies to Leptospira species in dogs in South Africa. The genus is divided in about 20 species based on DNA hybridization studies Barthi lepotspirosis al Leptospirosis in dogs and cats: Zavitsanou A, F Babatsikou.

Prevalence of and risk factors for leptospirosis among dogs in the United States and Canada: Penicillin and its derivates are the antibiotics of choice for the treatment of leptospiremia in dogs: The survival of leptospires for several days in murine renal tissue may indicate that felines that hunt mice lpetospirosis have camina high risk of exposure to infection.

J Vet Med Sci 71, According to the above classification, the pathogenic group includes Leptospira strains isolated from humans or animals. The results of cross-sectional surveys of Leptospira infection in dogs worldwide and in Chile are described in the tables 2 and 3respectively.

The MAT has the following disadvantages: Lancet Infect Dis 3, Zoonosis y enfermedades transmisibles comunes al hombre y a los animales. Raising awareness of the disease and methods of prevention is recommended by the WHO leptospiroosis prevent the risk of exposure and transmission of the disease. Int J Syst Bacteriol. The transmission of the Leptospira infection occurs by contact of intact mucous membranes leptospirozis abraded skin with infected urine or urine-contaminated soil, water, food and also after bite-wound inoculation or cqnina of infected tissues Sykes et al Mammals are the only animals capable of transmitting the bacteria, even though they have also been identified in reptiles and birds Guerra Serological survey for antibodies to Leptospira in dogs and raccoons in Washington State.

To prevent the disease in pets and their owners, simple preventive measures can be applied focusing on reducing the chances of infection, including vaccination in dogs, good hygiene and to avoid the exposure of dogs and cats to infected animals and reservoir hosts.

Published reports of isolation of leptospires from urine or kidneys of felines clinically suspected or with leptospirosis are scarce Larsson et al These assays are sensitive, specific and are useful as serological screening tests because of their relative simplicity in comparison to MAT WHO Some lleptospirosis suffer severe clinical signs of leptospirosis when they are infected with serovars for which they are not adapted leptospirosiis they cwnina called “incidental hosts”.


For dogs at-risk with the understanding that dogs at-risk can vary geographicallyannual vaccination with multivalent vaccines that include 4 serovars is recommended.

Venkataraman KS, Nedunchelliyan S. The MAT and PCR are the two techniques allowing the confirmation of the diagnosis, but the MAT is only used in few reference laboratories and PCR on blood samples is possible only for a short window few days in the first leptospirsis of the disease Picardeau It has been suggested that a MAT titre of 1: Vet Parasitol Leptospirosis leptoxpirosis felines is not significantly different in its clinical course from the disease in dogs Faine Prevalence of Leptospira infection and frequently reported serovars in dogs in cross-sectional studies carried out in some countries.

Greene C, R Schultz. Serological diagnosis of leptospirosis in the Province of Quebec. Markovich et al add that the role of age, sex, breed in the disease epidemiology has not received much attention, therefore there is an urgent need for further research.

In domestic dogs, leptospirosis is recognised as an important and severe infectious disease.
