trajectory analysis of winds and vesicular stomatitis in north america, 1982-5.outbreaks of vesicular stomatitis, serotype new jersey, during epidemics in the united states and northern mexico, 1982-5, were examined by backward trajectories of winds to investigate spread and possible sources. the outbreaks selected for analysis did not involve introduction of disease by infected animals. the findings indicate that wind could have been responsible for carrying infection from northern mexico to arizona and new mexico and thence to colorado and utah and on to wyoming, idaho a ...19902157606
equine ehrlichial colitis (potomac horse fever): recognition of the disease in pennsylvania, new jersey, new york, ohio, idaho, and connecticut.equine ehrlichial colitis (potomac horse fever), a newly identified colitis of the horse, was first recognized in maryland. in this report, we document occurrence of the disease in pennsylvania, new jersey, new york, ohio, idaho, and connecticut. enzootic areas were recognized by a characteristic pattern. frequently there was a seasonal pattern and high prevalence of sporadic colitis in unstressed horses. the attack rate per farm generally was low. horses on pasture, as well as those stabled, we ...19863744978

a serologic survey for selected infectious diseases of black bears in idaho.two hundred sixty-five black bears (ursus americanus) from northcentral idaho were examined serologically over a five-year period for antibodies against selected infectious disease agents. the number of positive serum samples number of sera tested and percent positive for each infectious agent is: tularemia, 65/340 (19); brucellosis, 18/332 (5); toxoplasmosis, 23/303 (8); leptospirosis, 2/196 (1); trichinosis, 16/122 (13); q-fever, 13/210 (6); st. louis encephalitis, 3/340 (1); western equine en ...19807411749
multiple sources of escherichia coli o157 in feedlots and dairy farms in the northwestern usa.samples from cattle, other domestic and wild animals, flies, feeds, and water-troughs were collected from 12 cattle farms and tested for escherichia coli o157. e. coli o157 was isolated from bovine fecal samples on all 12 farms with a within herd prevalence ranging from 1.1% to 6.1%. e. coli o157 was also found in 1 of 90 (1.1%) equine fecal samples, 2 of 65 (3.1%) canine fecal samples, 1 of 200 pooled bird samples (0.5%), 2 of 60 pooled fly samples (3.3%), and 10 of 320 (3.1%) water-trough samp ...19989638776
veterinarian perception of the intentional misuse of veterinary medications in humans: a preliminary survey of idaho-licensed practitioners.the intentional administration of veterinary medications to humans is a form of medication misuse that has not been systematically studied. veterinarians are the health practitioner group most likely to have knowledge about this problem and to be approached by the public for advice. for this preliminary study, questionnaires were mailed to 1,077 veterinarians registered with the idaho board of veterinary medicine regarding their knowledge and perceptions of this type of misuse; 392 (36.4%) compl ...200212135152
geographic variability of escherichia coli ribotypes from animals in idaho and georgia.several genotypic methods have been developed for determining the host origin of fecal bacteria in contaminated waters. some of these methods rely on a host origin database to identify environmental isolates. it is not well understood to what degree these host origin isolates are geographically variable (i.e., cosmopolitan or endemic). this is important because a geographically limited host origin database may or may not be universally applicable. the objective of our study was to use one genoty ...200212175046

clinical field efficacy and safety of pyrantel pamoate paste (19.13% w/w pyrantel base) against anoplocephala spp. in naturally infected horses.clinical field trials were conducted at five geographical locations in the usa (oklahoma, wisconsin, tennessee, virginia and idaho) to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pyrantel pamoate paste (19.13%, w/w, pyrantel base) administered at the recommended dosage of 13.2 mg pyrantel base/kg (6.0 mg pyrantel base/lb) body weight (b.w.) against tapeworm infections of anoplocephala spp. in naturally infected horses. horses at each study site were allocated by restricted randomization based on the ces ...200616434142
west nile virus activity--united states, january 1-august 15, 2006.this report summarizes west nile virus (wnv) surveillance data reported to cdc through arbonet as of 3 a.m. mountain daylight time, august 15, 2006. a total of 26 states had reported 388 cases of human wnv illness to cdc. a total of 214 (56%) cases for which such data were available occurred in males; median age of patients was 49 years (range: 2-91 years). dates of illness onset ranged from january 6 to august 10; a total of 13 cases were fatal. a total of 68 presumptive west nile viremic blood ...200616915222
subtype analysis of cryptosporidium specimens from sporadic cases in colorado, idaho, new mexico, and iowa in 2007: widespread occurrence of one cryptosporidium hominis subtype and case history of an infection with the cryptosporidium horse genotype.subtyping was conducted in late 2007 on 57 cryptosporidium specimens from sporadic cases in colorado, idaho, new mexico, and iowa. one previously rare cryptosporidium hominis subtype was identified in 40 cases (70%) from all four states, and the cryptosporidium horse genotype was identified in a pet shop employee with severe clinical symptoms.200919587303
type a botulism in horses in the united states: a review of the past ten years (1998-2008).the objective of the current retrospective study was to describe naturally occurring type a botulism in horses in the united states. in the past 10 years, the botulism laboratory at the university of pennsylvania's school of veterinary medicine has identified 3 isolated cases and 8 outbreaks of type a botulism in horses via samples positive for clostridium botulinum type a toxin or spores using the mouse bioassay test. additional information was obtained by review of submission forms and by tele ...201020224073
molecular epidemiology and genetic characterization of equine arteritis virus isolates associated with the 2006-2007 multi-state disease occurrence in the usa.in 2006-2007, equine viral arteritis (eva) was confirmed for the first time in quarter horses in multiple states in the usa. the entire genome of an equine arteritis virus (eav) isolate from the index premises in new mexico was 12 731 nt in length and possessed a previously unrecorded unique 15 nt insertion in the nsp2-coding region in orf1a and a 12 nt insertion in orf3. sequence analysis of additional isolates made during this disease occurrence revealed that all isolates from new mexico, utah ...201020444993
