Abstract

Anaplasmosis and babesioses are tick-borne cattle diseases caused by Anaplasma marginale and various Babesia species, respectively. Both their symptoms and their modes of transmission have some similarities. In Europe, babesiosis is caused by Babesia divergens, an intraerythrocytic parasite that...

Abstract

Babesia divergens, transmitted by the tick Ixodes ricinus, is the main blood protozoa in cattle from France. It is responsible for most of the cases of bovine babesiosis in Europe, but the clinical expression of the disease is not systematic, notably in the context of enzootic stability because of...

Abstract

Hard ticks are haematophagous arthropods belonging to the family Ixodidae, and parasitize all classes of vertebrates in virtually all regions of the world. They do not have a significant direct pathogenic role in temperate regions, but in tropical zones they have an intensity of infestation that...

Abstract

Babesiosis is widespread in France in dogs, horses and cattle. B. divergens, the disease agent of bovine babesiosis is widespread in France. 2 studies were carried out in Sarthe, France, which showed that ticks appear twice a year (spring and autumn). The percentage of positive animals is...

Abstract

The authors report that the regular outbreaks of Babesia bovis infection in cattle in their practice have been prevented by giving a subcutaneous dose of 200 µg/kg ivermectin soon after turn-out in spring, to control the vector tick, Ixodes ricinus. This technique has the advantage of controlling...

Abstract

Studies on the epizootiology of bovine babesiosis in an endemic area (Charollais) of France, involving examination of I. ricinus population dynamics in relation to cases of babesiosis, are described. On the basis of this study, prophylactic measures (sanitary and medical) were assessed. The results ...
