molecular evidence of vector-borne pathogens in dogs and cats and their ectoparasites in algiers, algeria, only limited information is currently available on the prevalence of emergent canine and feline vector-borne diseases. the aim of the present work was to detect by qpcr vector-associated bacteria in stray dogs and cats and their ectoparasites from algiers. 18/117 (15.38%) dogs and 2/107 (1.87%) cats were positive for at least one vector-borne agent. coxiella burnetii and bartonella henselae were identified in 1/117 (0.85%) dog individually. ehrlichia canis dna was detected in 17/117 ...201627012917
a molecular survey of anaplasma spp., rickettsia spp., ehrlichia canis and babesia microti in foxes and fleas from sicily.fleas (insecta: siphonaptera) are obligate bloodsucking insects, which parasitize birds and mammals, and are distributed throughout the world. several species have been implicated in pathogen transmission. this study aimed to monitor red foxes and the fleas isolated from them in the palermo and ragusa provinces of sicily, italy, as these organisms are potential reservoirs and vectors of pathogens. thirteen foxes (vulpes vulpes) and 110 fleas were analysed by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) to de ...201324589112
