isolation of enterobacteria from diarrhoeic west african dwarf investigation was undertaken to determine enterobacteriaceae from faecal swabs of west african dwarf goats suffering from diarrhoea in the nsukka area of anambra state, nigeria. in one academic year a total of 37 enteric bacteria were successfully recovered aseptically from 35 faecal swabs from caprine species. the predominant enterobacteria pathogens isolated from diarrhoeic goats and their relative percentage frequency of isolation were: 27 escherichia (73%), 7 proteus (19%) and 3 shigella ...19883216800

incidence of rabies virus complement-fixing antibodies in unvaccinated dogs, humans and livestock in anambra state of nigeria.a total of 376 serum samples from dogs, humans and livestock were examined for complement-fixing (cf) antibodies against rabies virus. high cf antibody titres (up to 1:1024) were detected among unvaccinated dogs aged 3 months and above as in vaccinated ones, thus establishing endemicity of the virus in the area. an antibody titre of 1:128 was detected in the serum of a puppy aged below 3 months and is unlikely to be due to residual maternal antibodies. it rather provides evidence for seroconvers ...19921602992
