Abstract

Purpose: Little is known about cryptosporidiosis in turtles of invasive alien species (IAS) inhabiting European bodies of fresh water. In this article, we report an occurrence of Cryptosporidium parvum in a red-eared slider turtle (Trachemys scripta elegans) captured in a rural aquatic ecosystem in ...

Abstract

Clinical health checks including blood testing before brumation in fall are an important tool in reptile medicine and help to reduce the risk of complications during brumation. Electrophoresis may be useful for the evaluation of liver cell function and the detection of antigenic stimulation. The...

Abstract

Turtles are suspected to be involved in the epidemiology of Leptospira; however, data about the dissemination of this zoonotic pathogen among chelonians are scant. In the present study, the serum samples collected from 49 Trachemys scripta elegans living in a natural park of northern Italy were...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of benzylpenicillin on the pharmacokinetics of acyclovir in red-eared slider turtles (Trachemys scripta elegans). Six clinically healthy red-eared slider turtles weighing 400 and 580 g were used for the study. Acyclovir (40 mg/kg) and...

Abstract

Background: Thyroid hormones and capillary zone electrophoresis are rarely studied in reptile medicine. Objectives: The goal of this prospective study was to establish RIs for plasma proteins and thyroid hormones, total tetraiodothyronine (tT4), free T4 (fT4), total triiodothyronine (tT3), and free ...

Abstract

A red-eared slider with a chronic non-healing ulcerative shell lesion was diagnosed with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The animal underwent surgical debulking and adjuvant hypofractionated radiation therapy. The lesion initially responded, with near-complete tumour regression, but then...

Abstract

The red-eared slider (RES) ranavirus (RESRV) was isolated from a free-ranging RES turtle that died with evidence of respiratory disease. The RESRV genome sequence (106,878 bp) was determined, and phylogenetic analysis revealed that it is a common midwife toad virus (CMTV) strain. This study is the...
