infectious keratoconjunctivitis in free-ranging mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) from zion national park, epizootic of infectious keratoconjunctivitis (ik) was studied opportunistically in free-ranging mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) from zion national park, utah (usa), from november 1992 to march 1994. moraxella sp. and chlamydia sp. were isolated from the conjunctiva of two of seven deer. in addition, thelazia californiensis occurred on the conjunctivas of six of seven deer. based on field observations, adults appeared to be affected clinically at a higher incidence during both years as opposed ...19968722272
bacteria and nematodes in the conjunctiva of mule deer from wyoming and utah.swabs of conjunctiva were collected from 44 live and 226 hunter-harvested mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) from wyoming and utah (usa). we identified 29 gram negative and 22 gram positive bacterial taxonomic categories, but many isolates from hunter-harvested animals were environmental contaminants. staphylococcus spp. and micrococcus spp. were the most common gram positive bacteria isolated, and enterobacter spp., escherichia coli, and pseudomonas spp. were common gram negative bacteria isolated ...200011085445
