Abstract

Leishmania infantum infection including treatment and follow up in domestic animals other than dogs and cats has not been described at this moment. This article describes the anti-Leishmania treatment and follow-up of a ferret (Mustela putorius furo) with leishmaniosis. A combined therapeutic...

Abstract

Ferrets, like other carnivores, are susceptible to a number of different parasites; however, clinical reports of ferrets with actual disease are surprisingly limited. This may be a result of underreporting or because domestic ferrets are often housed indoors with no exposure to most parasites. The...

Abstract

Cryptosporidium spp. and Enterocytozoon bieneusi are two well-known protist pathogens which can result in diarrhea in humans and animals. To examine the occurrence and genetic characteristics ofCryptosporidium spp. and E. bieneusi in pet red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris), 314 fecal specimens were...

Abstract

There is a surprisingly scarce amount of epidemiological and molecular data on the prevalence, frequency, and diversity of the intestinal protozoan parasites Giardia duodenalis and Cryptosporidium spp. in wildlife in general and mesocarnivore species in particular. Consequently, the extent of the...

Abstract

The present study was undertaken to describe Cryptosporidium spp. infection in tree squirrels from 17 locations in Northern Italy. A total of 357 squirrels were examined, including species native to Europe (Sciurus vulgaris; n=123), and species introduced from North America (Sciurus carolinensis;...

Abstract

Recent molecular studies show that Cryptosporidium parvum is composed of at least eight genotypes including zoonotic genotypes. Therefore, it is important to screen the genotypes of the isolates harbored in animals for the control of human cryptosporidiosis. The ferret is a popular pet, but also a...

Abstract

The aim of this research study was to evaluate the gastrointestinal parasitism in ferrets (Mustela putorius furo) kept in captivity in the southern region of Brazil. Fecal samples of two three-year-old ferrets, a male and a female, were analyzed by the direct smear method, the centrifugal flotation ...

Abstract

DNA sequence analysis of the 60 kDa glycoprotein (gp60) gene has been used extensively in subtyping Cryptosporidium hominis in humans and Cryptosporidium parvum in humans and ruminants. In this study, nucleotide sequences of the gp60 gene were obtained from seven Cryptosporidium species and...

AbstractFull Text

We investigated the genotypes of Cryptosporidium infecting red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris L.) in two areas of the Western Alps in Italy. Examination of 141 faecal samples from 70 red squirrels revealed oocysts of Cryptosporidium in 17 animals (24.3%). Based on 18S rRNA gene sequencing, two...

Abstract

A total of 51 faecal samples from wild and farmed mink were analysed by a direct immunofluorescence antibody test. Cryptosporidium oocysts were identified in eight, apparently healthy, farmed American mink (Mustela vison). The isolates were identified as Cryptosporidium parvum 'ferret' genotype by...
