hemotropic mycoplasma prevalence in shelter and client-owned cats in saskatchewan and a comparison of polymerase chain reaction (pcr) - results from two independent laboratories.the primary objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of subclinical hemotropic mycoplasma (hm) infections in 2 distinct feline populations: cats from a local shelter and client-owned cats presented for elective procedures (vaccination, ovariohysterectomy, orchiectomy) at the western college of veterinary medicine - veterinary teaching hospital (wcvm-vth). the second objective of this study was to evaluate the inter-test agreement of 2 independent conventional polymerase chain reac ...201020592837
mycoplasma haemofelis and mycoplasma haemominutum detection by polymerase chain reaction in cats from saskatchewan and alberta.hemobartonellosis is caused by mycoplasma haemofelis, previously known as haemobartonella felis. cats infected with this organism typically develop regenerative anemia. the related species mycoplasma haemominutum may also cause anemia. the purposes of this study were to use polymerase chain reaction technology to determine if both organisms exist in naturally infected cats from saskatchewan and alberta, and to determine if disease manifestation corresponds to mycoplasma species. thirteen of 18 c ...200415510683
