effects of capture and transport on blood parameters in free-ranging mouflon (ovis ammon).twelve free-ranging mouflon (ovis ammon), eight adults and four lambs, were captured in northeast spain. the animals were transported for 9 hr from the capture site to the wildlife rescue center at vallcalent (lleida), 300 km sw. blood samples were taken at capture and after transport to study the effects on hematologic and biochemical parameters. the rbc, pcv, hb, and alkaline phosphatase values were significantly higher in lambs than in adults, and total protein levels were significantly lower ...19979580218
seroprevalence of babesia ovis in mouflon sheep in spain.a serological survey detected antibodies against babesia ovis in mouflon sheep (ovis musimon) from two different reserves located in catalonia in northeastern spain. an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat) was developed using a b. ovis isolate of ovine origin as the antigen. of 50 sera tested, six (12%) showed titres between 1:160 and 1:640 and were considered positive. these results indicate that exposure of mouflon to babesia ovis is common in this region.19989706577

prevalence of toxoplasma gondii antibodies in red deer (cervus elaphus) and other wild ruminants from spain.serum samples from 441 red deer (cervus elaphus) and 161 other wild ruminant species, collected between 1993 and 2005 from six regions of spain were tested for antibodies against toxoplasma gondii by the modified agglutination test (mat). antibodies to t. gondii (mat 1:25 or higher) were detected in 15.6% of red deer. statistically significant differences were observed among sampling sites with seroprevalence in red deer from catalonia (42.2%) being significantly higher compared with other spani ...200616359801
seroprevalence of neospora caninum in non-carnivorous wildlife from spain.serum samples from 1034 non-carnivorous wildlife from spain were tested for antibodies to neospora caninum by competitive screening enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) and confirmed by an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat). high agreement was observed between results in both techniques (kappa value higher than 0.9). prevalences of n. caninum antibodies positive by both techniques were 11.8% of 237 red deer (cervus elaphus), 7.7% of 13 barbary sheep (ammotragus lervia), 6.1% of 33 ro ...200716962706
