lungworms (dictyocaulus arnfieldi): prevalence in live equids in kentucky.prevalence of natural infections of the lungworm, dictyocaulus arnfieldi, was investigated in kentucky in 5,437 live equids (horses, ponies, and asses) on 91 farms by examination of fecal samples over a 15-month-period from january 28, 1983 to april 19, 1984. for the 91 farms investigated, asses only were examined on 1 farm; for the other 90 farms, examinations were made of horses on all of them, of ponies on 4 farms, and of asses on 9 farms. larvae of d arnfieldi were found in fecal samples of ...19853160271
taylorella asinigenitalis sp. nov., a bacterium isolated from the genital tract of male donkeys (equus asinus).three bacterial isolates that were phenotypically indistinguishable from taylorella equigenitalis were obtained from the urethral fossae of three male donkeys (equus asinus), one located in the state of california and the other two in the state of kentucky, usa. based on results of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, the isolate from california differed from the two kentucky isolates, which were the same. mares bred artificially (california) or naturally (kentucky) did not show signs of disease, e ...200111411723
prevalence and persistence of taylorella asinigenitalis in male donkeys.this study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence of taylorella asinigenitalis in a subset of the donkey population of michigan and in other equids on farms on which the organism was identified. other aims were to further characterize the carrier state in terms of persistence and preferred sites of colonization of t. asinigenitalis in the male donkey as well as determine the genotype of any isolates of the organism. initial testing of 43 donkeys and 1 mule turned up 4 (9.3%) donkeys cultur ...201222795262
initial occurrence of taylorella asinigenitalis and its detection in nurse mares, a stallion and donkeys in 1998, a newly identified bacterium taylorella asinigenitalis was isolated from the external genitalia and reproductive tracts of nurse mares, a stallion and donkey jacks in kentucky. an extensive regulatory effort was implemented to contain the outbreak including the tracing and testing of 232 horses and donkeys on 58 premises. t. asinigenitalis was isolated from the reproductive tract of 10 adult equids, including two donkey jacks, one paint quarter-horse stallion and seven draft-type breedi ...201020537742
