serologic survey of selected pathogens in white-tailed and mule deer in western nebraska.exposure of free-ranging white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) and mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) in western nebraska to selected livestock pathogens was determined by serology and attempted virus isolation. antibodies to bluetongue virus, epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus, and bovine respiratory syncytial virus were present in both species of deer. no serologic reactors to brucella or anaplasma were found. attempts to isolate bluetongue virus were negative.19862845156

prevalence of agglutinating antibodies to toxoplasma gondii in adult and fetal mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) from nebraska.toxoplasma gondii is an apicomplexan parasite of mammals and birds. herbivores acquire postnatal infection by ingesting oocysts from contaminated food or water. toxoplasma gondii infection is common in white-tailed deer, odocoileus virginianus, but little is known about the prevalence of infection in mule deer, o. hemionus. we examined sera from 89 mule deer from nebraska for agglutinating antibodies to t. gondii using the modified direct agglutination test (mat) with formalin-fixed tachyzoites ...200516539039
first observation of elaeophora schneideri wehr and dikmans, 1935 (nematoda:filariidae) in mule deer from nebraska.between november 2000 and november 2005, approximately 200 mule deer (odocoileus hemionus hemionus) and white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) from western nebraska were extensively examined for the presence of elaeophora schneideri, wehr and dikmans, 1935; three adult e. schneideri were detected from three mule deer. this represents the first documented occurrence of e. schneideri from wild deer in nebraska.200717347405
meningeal worm in deer from western hundred seventy-eight white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) and 275 mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) collected from locker plants in the western 2/3 of nebraska (usa) in november 1997 were examined for the meningeal worm (parelaphostrongylus tenuis). parelaphostrongylus tenuis was identified in 17 (10%) of 168 white-tailed deer and in one (<1%) of 273 mule deer. this is the first naturally occurring infection of p. tenuis recorded in a mule deer.200010813621
absence of tuberculosis in free-ranging deer in nebraska.lymph nodes from 271 white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) and mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) in nebraska (usa) were examined microscopically for tuberculoid lesions. lymph nodes lesions in at least one node were found in 12 deer. lesions were examined with zeihl-neelson acid fast stains and by polymerase chain reactions using m. bovis specific probes. no evidence of tuberculosis was found. the small granulomatous lesions were likely caused by other bacteria.199910073357
