pathology of ocular lesions in free-living moose (alces alces) from saskatchewan.clinical signs of impaired vision or neurological disease occurred in seven of 74 free-living moose (alces alces) from saskatchewan, canada, submitted for necropsy between 1969 and 1994. several lesions were found in each eye, including retinal degeneration (seven cases), cataract (six cases), lymphocytic-plasmacytic anterior uveitis (six cases), corneal scars (six cases), keratitis (four cases), and microphthalmia (one case), but their cause was not determined. moraxella bovis was isolated from ...19979027695
intrapopulation variation in gray wolf isotope (delta(15)n and delta(13)c) profiles: implications for the ecology of individuals.trophic relationships among organisms in terrestrial boreal ecosystems define ecological communities and are important in determining dynamics of energy flow and ecosystem function. we examined trophic relationships between the gray wolf (canis lupus) and 18 mammalian species from the boreal forest of central saskatchewan, canada, using delta(13)c and delta(15)n stable isotope values measured in guard hair samples. variance in isotope values for wolves and other carnivores was investigated as a ...200515883848
radionuclides and trace metals in canadian moose near uranium mines: comparison of radiation doses and food chain transfer with cattle and caribou.tissues from 45 moose and 4 cattle were collected to assess the health of country foods near uranium mines in northern saskatchewan. bone, liver, kidney, muscle and rumen contents were analyzed for uranium, radium-226 (226ra), lead-210 (210pb), and polonium-210 (210po). cesium-137 (137cs), potassium-40 (40k), and 27 trace metals were also measured in some tissues. within the most active mining area, po in liver and muscle declined significantly with distance from tailings, possibly influenced by ...200515824592
sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever in free-ranging moose (alces alces) in saskatchewan, canada.malignant catarrhal fever (mcf) is a sporadic disease of artiodactyls caused by several viruses in the gammaherpesvirinae. we report two cases of mcf in free-living moose (alces alces) from saskatchewan. one was a thin, dehydrated, adult male found recumbent in 2006. at necropsy, ulcers were found in the intestine, bladder, and corneas. microscopically, there was lymphocytic vasculitis and perivasculitis in many organs with infrequent fibrinoid necrosis. ovine herpes virus-2 (ohv-2) was identifi ...200919204352
potential role of soil properties in the spread of cwd in western canada.chronic wasting disease (cwd) is a horizontally transmissible prion disease of free ranging deer, elk and moose. recent experimental transmission studies indicate caribou are also susceptible to the disease. cwd is present in southeast alberta and southern saskatchewan. this cwd-endemic region is expanding, threatening manitoba and areas of northern alberta and saskatchewan, home to caribou. soil can serve as a stable reservoir for infectious prion proteins; prions bound to soil particles remain ...201624618673

prevalence and geographic distribution of canine and feline blastomycosis in the canadian prairies.this retrospective study reports patient signalment, method of diagnosis and geographic distribution, and examines trends in prevalence and seasonal distribution of blastomycosis cases submitted to a veterinary diagnostic laboratory in saskatchewan over a 21-year period. of the 143 cases that originated from saskatchewan and manitoba 137 were from canine and 6 from feline patients. signalment was similar to that previously reported. all cases originated in southern saskatchewan and manitoba, pri ...201324155475
parasitic zoonoses: one health surveillance in northern saskatchewan.we report the results of a joint human-animal health investigation in a dene community in northern saskatchewan, where residents harvest wildlife (including moose, bear, elk, and fish), live in close contact with free roaming dogs, and lack access to permanent veterinary services. fecal analysis of owned and free-roaming dogs over two consecutive years (nā€Š=ā€Š92, 103) identified several parasites of public health concern, including toxocara canis, diphyllobothrium spp., echinococcus/taenia, crypto ...201323556025
pet therapy: initiating a program.this paper provides the outline of a pet therapy program on the long term unit at the providence hospital, moose jaw, saskatchewan, which was initiated as a pilot program and is now part of regular occupational therapy programming. this paper covers the occupational therapy objectives, setting, procedure and criteria for patient involvement in pet therapy, and detail is given to aid other departments thinking of initiating their own program. the literature review briefly looks at the occupationa ...198510271292
