a serological survey of rural dogs and cats on the southwestern canadian prairie for zoonotic pathogens.a survey for antibodies against agents of plague, tularemia, and rocky mountain spotted fever (rmsf), and against sin nombre hantavirus (snv), bartonella henselae and b. clarridgeiae was conducted in the summer of 1995 using serum from rural dogs and cats living in the vicinity of four public parks in southeastern alberta and southwestern saskatchewan. antibodies to all pathogens were detected in all survey areas. overall prevalence rates were 0.075 for yersinia pestis, 0.089 for francisella tul ...200111257996
tularemia in canada with a focus on saskatchewan.although rare among humans in canada, tularemia is often endemic in wildlife. the inhabitants of rural areas are especially likely to be exposed to the causative bacterium, francisella tularensis, through trapping or through the bites of arthropods. muskrats have replaced rabbits as the principal source of infection, as illustrated by a familial outbreak of oropharyngeal tularemia in saskatchewan. in humans the disease has six distinct forms and can be asymptomatic, but it generally comes to med ...19827046896
tularemia in deer mice (peromyscus maniculatus) during a population irruption in saskatchewan, canada.type b tularemia caused by francisella tularensis subsp. holarctica was diagnosed in deer mice (peromyscus maniculatus) found dead at four sites in west-central saskatchewan during april and may 2005. the occurrence of tularemia coincided with a decline in the number of deer mice in part of a large area (>22000 km(2) ) in which deer mice had been extremely abundant during the autumn of 2004 and spring of 2005, and in which mice caused damage to crops in the autumn of 2004. this is apparently the ...200717347390
tularemia, plague, yersiniosis, and tyzzer's disease in wild rodents and lagomorphs in canada: a review.information related to infection of wild rodents or lagomorphs in canada by francisella tularensis, yersinia pestis, other yersinia spp., and clostridium piliforme was searched for this study. reports on tularemia in humans linked to these species came from diagnostic databases, literature, wildlife health specialists, and public health agencies. tularemia has been diagnosed in 8 species of wild rodent and 2 species in the genus lepus in canada. tularemia occurred in wild animals, or in humans a ...200920190973
tularaemia transmitted by ticks (dermacentor andersoni) in saskatchewan.common wood ticks (dermacentor andersoni) collected from saskatchewan landing provincial park, saskatchewan in the spring of 1982 transmitted a lethal tularaemia infection to four of six rabbits. francisella tularensis organisms were isolated from tissues taken from the dead rabbits and identified from subcultures using an indirect immunofluorescent antibody assay. one human associated with the animals developed symptoms of tularaemia and, after successful therapy, had a significant increase in ...19836667429
