lack of evidence of spill-over of salmonella enterica between cattle and sympatric iberian ibex (capra pyrenaica) from a protected area in catalonia, ne spain.salmonella enterica is a zoonotic agent of worldwide importance found in a wide range of wild hosts. however, its prevalence in many popular game species has never been assessed. iberian ibex (capra pyrenaica) is the main game caprinae of the iberian peninsula and around two thousand individuals are hunted every year for trophy or for home consumption. in this work, 313 iberian ibexes from the ports de tortosa i beseit national game reserve (ne spain) were tested for salmonella enterica in faece ...201423217161
hematologic and biochemical values for spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) captured via drive-net and box-trap.between october 2002 and september 2004, 70 free-ranging spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) were captured in catalonia, northeastern spain, using two different physical methods, drive-net (n=26) and box-trap (n=44). blood samples were taken to determine 20 hematologic and 23 biochemical variables. values obtained fell within already published reference intervals, with the following exceptions: higher values for red blood cells (rbc), packed cell volume (pcv), white blood cells (wbc), eosinophil coun ...200818957652
seroprevalence of neospora caninum in non-carnivorous wildlife from spain.serum samples from 1034 non-carnivorous wildlife from spain were tested for antibodies to neospora caninum by competitive screening enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) and confirmed by an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat). high agreement was observed between results in both techniques (kappa value higher than 0.9). prevalences of n. caninum antibodies positive by both techniques were 11.8% of 237 red deer (cervus elaphus), 7.7% of 13 barbary sheep (ammotragus lervia), 6.1% of 33 ro ...200716962706
seroprevalence of babesia ovis in spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) in catalonia, northeastern spain.a serologic survey was carried out in order to detect antibodies against babesia ovis in a large population of spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) from a hunting reserve in catalonia, northeastern spain. for this purpose, an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat) was developed using a b. ovis isolate of ovine origin as antigen. of the total 475 sera tested, 155 (32.6%) showed titres between 1:160 and 1:1280 and were considered positive. these results reveal that exposure of spanish ibex to b. ovis ...19989637213
prevalence of toxoplasma gondii antibodies in red deer (cervus elaphus) and other wild ruminants from spain.serum samples from 441 red deer (cervus elaphus) and 161 other wild ruminant species, collected between 1993 and 2005 from six regions of spain were tested for antibodies against toxoplasma gondii by the modified agglutination test (mat). antibodies to t. gondii (mat 1:25 or higher) were detected in 15.6% of red deer. statistically significant differences were observed among sampling sites with seroprevalence in red deer from catalonia (42.2%) being significantly higher compared with other spani ...200616359801
