hematozoa of the anatidae of the atlantic flyway. ii. tthe maritime provinces of canada.the prevalence of hematozoa (diagnosed from blood films) in a sample of 4200 anatids representing 14 species collected in new brunswick, nova scotia and prince edward island during the period 1969-1973 is given. thirty percent of the birds harboured hematozoa; the commonest blood parasite was haemoproteus (parahaemoproteus) nettionis (in 18% of the sample), followed by leucocytozoom simondi (in 14% of the sample). four species of plasmodium occurred in 5% of the sample-plasmodium circumflexum wa ...1975806712
presence and impact of the exercise-induced collapse associated dnm1 mutation in labrador retrievers and other breeds.the impact of the mutation causing dynamin 1 (dnm1)-associated exercise-induced collapse (d-eic) was determined in a retrospective genetic survey. the frequency of dnm1 mutant allele carriers in labrador retrievers from conformation show, field trial/hunt test, pet or service lines ranged from 17.9% to 38.0% and the frequency of homozygous mutant (ee genotype) individuals ranged from 1.8% to 13.6%; 83.6% of these ee labradors were reported to have collapsed by 4years of age. dnm1 mutation carrie ...201121782486
examination of candidate genes for hypoadrenocorticism in nova scotia duck tolling retrievers.inherited hypoadrenocorticism occurs in some dog breeds including the nova scotia duck tolling retriever (nsdtr) and is thought to be due to an immune attack on the adrenal glands. the genetic cause of this disorder in dogs has not been identified; however, many genes have been associated with hypoadrenocorticism and other immune-mediated conditions in humans including aire, baff, casp10, cd28, ctla-4, fasl, ptpn22, and tnfrsf6b. microsatellite marker loci were analysed for linkage with the dise ...201119931476
clinical features and heritability of hypoadrenocorticism in nova scotia duck tolling retrievers: 25 cases (1994-2006).to evaluate the clinical features and heritability of naturally occurring hypoadrenocorticism in nova scotia duck tolling retrievers (nsdtrs).200717669043
hypoadrenocorticism in young related nova scotia duck tolling retrievers.five cases of hypoadrenocorticism in young related nova scotia duck tolling retrievers are discussed. two were littermates and the others shared one or more common ancestors. no specific mode of inheritance was determined. clinical and laboratory findings typical of hypoadrenocorticism were observed. further documentation will be required to confirm a breed predisposition.19979105722
