Abstract
Campylobacters were isolated from the intestinal contents of healthy broilers and swine and from rectal swabs from impounded stray dogs and cats; 88 of 91 (96.7%) fowls, 54 of 63 (85.7%) swine, 20 of 61 (32.8%) dogs and 11 of 49 (22.4%) cats were positive. Of the 156 strains examined, 45 (29%) were classified as C. jejuni and 111 (71%) as C. coli. Of the 22 pound dogs and cats less than 6 months old, 13 (59%) yielded campylobacters, compared with 18 (20%) of the 88 older than this.
