infectious epiphysitis and valvular endocarditis in a red deer (cervus elaphus).a 10-month-old male red deer (cervus elaphus) was presented with severe lameness and enlargement of the fetlock areas of both front and one hind legs. radiographs demonstrated an epiphysitis and osteomyelitis of the distal metacarpal and metatarsal bones. post mortem revealed pus containing corynebacterium pyogenes and staphylococcus aureus in the lesions, and an accompanying valvular endocarditis of the right atrioventricular valve.198216030849
urolithiasis in a wild red deer (cervus elaphus) population.renal calculi were found in eight of 325 red deer kidney pairs examined, all eight were females and only one was infected in both kidneys. a further three deer badly infected with urolithiasis were found by chance, two were males. examples of the calculi found are illustrated to show their range of sizes and shapes. one calculus analysed for chemical composition comprised predominantly calcium carbonate.198216030852
a malignant catarrhal fever-like disease in red deer (cervus elaphus) in new zealand.two case histories are presented to illustrate the clinical and pathological findings of a malignant catarrhal fever-like disease as seen in farmed red deer in new zealand. attention is drawn to the similarities with some exotic diseases and the suggestion is made that deer may act as a reservoir for the aetiological agent.198216030882
anaemia and deaths in red deer (cervus elaphus) fawns associated with heavy infestations of cattle tick (haemaphysalis longicornis).in late december/early january 1979/80, deaths occurred in 30 red deer (cervus elaphus) fawns. evidence is presented to suggest that these deaths most likely resulted from heavy infestations of ticks (haemaphysalis longicornis).198216030894
blood constituents of farmed red deer (cervus elaphus). ii: biochemical values.approximately 80 farmed male and female red deer aged three months and over were blood sampled and biochemical parameters measured. the deer were sampled by jugular venepuncture without tranquillization. mean values recorded were serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (19.5 iu/l), glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (43.0 iu/l), creatine phosphokinase (197.9 iu/l), plasma pepsinogen (0.91 iu/i), blood urea nitrogen (8.56 mmol/l), serum glucose (6.9 mmol/l), phosphorus (1.75 mmol/l), calcium (2.13 mmol/l) ...198316030903
experimental transmission of malignant catarrhal fever to red deer (cervus elaphus).malignant catarrhal fever was transmitted from affected to recipient red deer (cervus elaphus) using blood or lymphoid suspension as inoculum. incubation periods ranged from 11 to 26 days. the disease was also transmitted using lymphoid suspension stored overnight at 4 degrees c or at -70 degrees c for 8 months. the experimental disease was characterised by fever, depression, anorexia, diarrhoea and dysentry. the course of the disease was approximately 96 hours. major lesions consisted of acute ...198316030936
experimental tuberculosis in red deer (cervus elaphus).this study was designed to investigate experimental mycobacterium bovis infection of red deer (cervus elaphus). three intravenously inoculated deer (dose 10 microg-1000 microg) developed miliary tuberculosis of the lungs and all died within 28 days of being infected. no clinical illnesses were observed in four subcutaneously (dose 1 microg-1000 microg) and three intratracheally (dose 10 microg-100 microg) inoculated deer. at the conclusion of the experiment six weeks post inoculation, these seve ...198316030937
survey of internal parasitism and anthelmintic use in farmed deer.faecal samples and questionnaires from 115 and 130 farms respectively were used to survey the internal parasite status of the national deer herd and examine current drenching practices. the survey included farms with red deer and wapiti-red deer crosses (cervus elaphus), and fallow deer (dama dama). gastrointestinal nematode eggs were recorded from 84% of all farms, dictyocaulus viviparus larvae from 85% of all farms, and elaphostrongylus cervi larvae from 35% of the farms with c. elaphus. faeca ...198316030938
