sero-prevalence of agglutinins to listeria monocytogenes in nigerian domestic animals.a survey using tube agglutination test was conducted to determine the antibody prevalence to listeria monocytogenes serotypes 1/2a, 1/2b, 1/2c, 3a and 4b in 1,190 serum samples of 8 animals species from various sources in kano and kaduna states of nigeria. following absorption with staphylococcus aureus antigen to remove cross-reacting agglutinins, 52 (68.4 p. 100) of the horse samples were positive. twenty-six (36.1 p. 100) pig, 52 (20.8 p. 100) cattle, 50 (20.0 p. 100) goat, 20 (20.0 p. 100) d ...19892518470
toxin-types of clostridium perfringens strains isolated from sheep, cattle and paddock soils in nigeria.two-hundred and forty-five strains of clostridium perfringens isolated from the faeces of apparently healthy sheep and cattle and from their environments (paddock soils) in kano and kaduna states of nigeria were studied. the isolates were examined by the toxin-antitoxin neutralisation tests performed intradermally in depilated albino guinea-pigs. one-hundred and twenty-seven (53.1%) of the isolates were type a, 17 (7.1%) were type b, 14 (4.9%) were type c, 44 (18.4%) were type d and 19 (7.9%) we ...19862873674
Molecular characterization and phylogenetic study of peste des petits ruminants viruses from North central States of Nigeria.Peste des petits ruminants is an endemic disease of sheep and goats in Nigeria and vaccination has been the method of control but sporadic outbreaks have been reported. This study was carried out to characterize PPR viruses from outbreaks in 2007 and 2009 from Kaduna and Plateau States.201121726444
a 6-year survey of pathological conditions of slaughtered animals at zango abattoir in zaria, kaduna state, nigeria.a 6-year retrospective study (2000-2005) of animals slaughtered at the zango abattoir in zaria, kaduna state, nigeria was carried out to determine disease conditions encountered in slaughtered animals. records kept at the abattoir were analysed. a total of 69,307 cattle, 3,820 goats and 1,763 sheep were slaughtered for the period under study. of the 69,307 cattle slaughtered for the period, 22,459 (32.41%) were males and 46,848 (67.59%) were females, while 1,763 sheep were slaughtered comprising ...201120734135
prevalence of antibodies to dermatophilus congolensis in sheep and goats in nigeria.a serological survey on dermatophilosis was carried out amongst sheep and goats in kaduna state of nigeria. sera were obtained from slaughter animals and from sheep kept on an isolated ranch. the percentage of seropositive animals was 28.0 in slaughter sheep, 0.0 in sheep kept on the ranch, and 23.2 in slaughter goats. the high prevalence of d. congolensis antibodies among small ruminants compares well with the level of prevalence reported of cattle of cattle and calls for a concerted government ...19846730289
studies on isolation and drug sensitivity of trypanosoma vivax in northern a study to investigate the occurrence in cattle of trypanosoma vivax strains resistant to the normal therapeutic dose of homidium, 47 isolates of t. vivax were collected from 10 different trypanosomiasis treatment centres in the north central state of nigeria. of these 47 isolates, 23 produced infection in the experimental animals that were used for subsequent drug sensitivity trials. while all but one of the experimental cattle inoculated with t. vivax became infected, less than 50% of the e ...19751124965
the epidemiology of echinococcus infection in kaduna state, nigeria.infection of dogs with echinococcus gramulosus is recorded for the first time in kaduna state. observations on 330 dogs from different suburbs revealed an incidence of 1.2 per cent. of slaughtered stock examined, hydatid cyst infections were found in sheep (7.1 per cent), goats (18.4 per cent), cattle (1.5 per cent), camels (70.9 per cent) and pigs (5 per cent).1979552694
a serological survey for rift valley fever antibody in food animals in kaduna and sokoto states of nigeria.a total of 1106 serum samples from cattle, sheep, goats and camels were collected from kaduna and sokoto states of nigeria. these were tested for the presence of antibody to rift valley fever virus by the agar gel immunodiffusion method. the antibody prevalence rates were 2.85% in cattle, 6.67% in sheep, 0.98% in goats and 3.13% in camels.19826820360
serological evidence of ife virus infection in nigerian indigenous domestic ruminants.serological evidence of ife virus infection was observed in cattle, sheep, goats and camels in both ecological zones of sokoto and kaduna states of nigeria. the antibody prevalence rates differed between species and between zones, being highest in the guinea savanna. this is the first report of possible ife virus infection in domestic ruminants.19892540575
