comparative experimental haemonchus contortus infection of two sheep breeds native to the canary islands.this study compares the susceptibility to haemonchus contortus infection in two breeds of sheep endemic to the canary islands, the canaria hair breed sheep and the canaria sheep. sheep were experimentally infected with 20,000 larvae of h. contortus and animals killed on days 7 and 28 post-infection. no difference between sheep breeds were detected in immature worm counts at days 7 or 28 post-infection. however, in comparison to the canaria sheep breed, the canaria hair breed sheep showed lower m ...200818394807
occurrence and genotype characterization of giardia duodenalis in goat kids from the canary islands, spain.giardia duodenalis (syn. giardia lamblia, giardia intestinalis) is a wide-spread intestinal protozoa of both humans and animals. although giardiosis in goat is commonly asymptomatic, young kids may bear an enteric disease associated with persistent diarrhoea and delayed weight gain. in the present study we have analysed the occurrence of giardia in 315 young goat kids (2-6 months old) from gran canaria island (spain) through visualization of faecal cysts. the identification of genotypes of g. du ...200818436382
seroprevalence of coxiella burnetii in domestic ruminants in gran canaria island, spain.coxiella burnetii is the causative agent of q fever, a zoonosis with worldwide occurrence. in the canary islands, the overall seroprevalence in humans has been estimated to be 21.5%. gran canaria island concentrates the highest ruminant population in the archipelago and the prevalence of the human infection is 23.5%. to evaluate the seroprevalence in livestock and the affected areas in gran canaria island, a total of 1249 ruminants were randomly selected for this study (733 goats, 369 sheep and ...201020537108
