Serological studies on prevalence of equine ehrlichiosis in Switzerland

Serological studies on prevalence of equine ehrlichiosis in Switzerland

Schweizer Archiv fur Tierheilkunde 133(4): 185

Of 1645 blood samples from clinically healthy horses tested by indirect immunofluorescence for antibodies against Ehrlichia equi 66 (4%) samples were positive. 14% of the seropositives showed symptoms of the disease within 2 years. Geographical data, seasonality, factors involved in increased positivity and other parameters are evaluated.
