epizootiological survey of parainfluenza-3, reovirus-3, respiratory syncytial and infectious bovine rhinotracheitis viral antibodies in sheep and goat flocks in quebec.a serological survey was conducted in an attempt to detect antibodies against bovine respiratory viruses in sheep and goats from seven geographical areas of quebec. sera from 10% of the animals in 182 sheep flocks and 40 goat flocks were collected and specific antibodies against parainfluenza-3, reovirus type 3, respiratory syncytial and infectious bovine rhinotracheitis viruses were detected by hemagglutination-inhibition tests for the former viruses and complement fixation and seroneutralizati ...19853000551
prevalence of antibodies to bovine respiratory syncytial virus, bovine viral diarrhea virus, bovine herpesvirus-1, and bovine parainfluenza-3 virus in sheep and goats in quebec.serum samples were collected from 1,075 clinically normal sheep and goats from 77 flocks in 7 agricultural regions of quebec from june to august 1982. sheep and goats were tested for antibodies to bovine respiratory syncytial virus, bovine viral diarrhea virus, and bovine herpes-virus-1 by the indirect fluorescent antibody technique and for parainfluenza-3 virus by the hemagglutination inhibition test. the prevalence of antibodies in animals to respiratory syncytial virus was 31%; to bovine vira ...19846089626
seroepidemiological survey of maedi-visna virus infection in sheep and goat flocks in quebec.maedi-visna, a chronic viral disease of adult sheep characterized by progressive dyspnoea or neurological manifestations, was first recognized and described clinically in canada in 1970. seroepidemiological study was conducted in sheep and goats in various areas of quebec. sera of 10% of the animals of selected flocks were collected and specific antibodies against maedi-visna virus were tested by a modified direct complement fixation test. results show seropositive rate of 67.6% for sherbrooke s ...19836315198
outbreak of salmonella give in the province of quebec.salmonellosis due to salmonella give involving cows, a goat, and an ostrich over a 6-month period was investigated. cases were found in 4 different regions. antimicrobial susceptibility patterns, phagetyping, and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis analyses confirmed that all isolates belonged to the same clone. a common source of infection was suspected.19979426945
lack of evidence of brucella ovis infection in rams in quebec.a study was conducted to estimate the seroprevalence of brucella ovis infection in rams in the estrie and bas-saint-laurent regions (quebec). rams sera (n = 258) were serologically evaluated from 224 rams in 30 commercial flocks and from 34 rams at 2 slaughterhouses by using an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. epididymides and testes were examined by palpation on farms and microscopically for culled rams. no ram was seropositive to brucella ovis or had lesions suggestive of brucellosis from th ...200415144103
caprine herpesvirus- 1 abortion storm in a goat herd in quebec.numerous abortions were reported on a quebec goat farm, and caprine herpesvirus-1 (caphv-1) was confirmed by pcr in several tissues from 3 aborted fetuses. this is the first report of caphv-1 in canada. practitioners and diagnosticians must consider this disease when making a differential diagnosis for caprine abortion.200415072197
rapid detection of streptococcus suis serotype 2 in weaned pigs.a survey to detect streptococcus suis serotype 2 in 1,716 weaned pigs was done in quebec. forty-nine sow herds were included in this survey: in 26 herds, s suis serotype 2 had been isolated during the preceding 12 months and in 23 herds (control), the organism had not been detected during a previous study. swab specimens of the nasal cavity and tonsils of pigs were obtained for bacteriologic culture, and s suis serotype 2 was easily detected by the use of brain-heart infusion agar containing a s ...19892802297

presence of antibodies to bovine viral diarrhea-mucosal disease virus (border disease) in sheep and goat flocks in quebec.a seroepidemiological study of border disease was conducted in sheep and goats in various areas of quebec. sera of 10% of animals of selected flocks were collected and specific antibodies against bovine viral diarrhea- mucosal disease were tested by seroneutralization. results show that 10.9% and 16% of sheep and goats respectively gave a positive reaction. the lower serological prevalence was found in sheep flocks of the sherbrooke area (5.4%) while the highest percentage of positive sera was o ...19846326984
