prevalence, serotypes and virulence genes of shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli isolated from ovine and caprine milk and other dairy products in spain.the aim of this study was to determinate the prevalence, serotypes and virulence genes of shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli (stec) strains isolated from different dairy products (dp) in spain with the purpose of determining whether dp represent a potential source of stec pathogenic for humans. a total of 502 dp were examined from 64 different ovine and caprine flocks and 6 dairy plants in extremadura (western spain). samples were collected monthly between march 2003 and june 2004 and includ ...200616260057
efficacy of eprinomectin pour-on in naturally oestrus ovis infested merino sheep in extremadura, south-west spain.the aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the eprinomectin pour-on in naturally oestrus ovis-infested sheep. to carry out this trial, 14 naturally infected sheep from the same flock were used. the animals were randomly distributed in three groups: group 1 (non-treated sheep), group 2 treated with 0.5 mg/kg bodyweight and group 3 treated with 1 mg/kg bodyweight of eprinomectin. the sheep were slaughtered 15 days after treatment and their heads were sectioned to count and identify larva ...200616550434

seroprevalence of oestrus ovis (diptera, oestridae) infestation and associated risk factors in ovine livestock from southwestern spain.this survey was carried out to determine the seroprevalence of nasal infestation by sheep bot fly, oestrus ovis l., and to identify the risk factors associated with the disease in flocks in southwestern spain. in total, 5,878 sera samples of adult sheep were collected at random in 551 farms from four provinces in the southwestern spain: badajoz, cáceres, córdoba, and sevilla. sera were tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for o. ovis antibodies, by using a crude l2 larval as antigen. the ...200515962782
echinococcus granulosus infection in spain.cystic echinococcosis (ce) caused by the cestode echinococcus granulosus is an endemic disease in spain. although specific control programmes initiated in the 1980s have led to marked reductions in ce infection rates in spain, the disease still remains an important human and animal health problem in many regions of the country. human incidence and livestock (including sheep, cattle, pigs and horses) prevalence data were gathered from national epidemiological surveillance information systems and ...200818331519
