Serological and bacteriological investigation of leptospirosis in zoo animals

Serological and bacteriological investigation of leptospirosis in zoo animals

Revista Cubana de Ciencias Veterinarias 19(3): 219-225

Over a period of 7 years, serological examinations were made of 550 animals in the National Zoological Gardens using the microagglutination test of Wolff (1954), with live antigen of 8 serogroups: icterohaemorrhagiae, canicola, australia, hebdomadis, tarassovi, pomona, grippotyphosa and pyrogenes. All the tests on Carnivora and Proboscidea were negative and, in the case of Primates, there were 3 reactors to L. pomona and 1 to L. icterohaemorrhagiae out of 61 examined.
