Neurologic disease attributable to infection with Parelaphostrongylus tenuis in blackbuck antelope



Neurologic disease attributable to infection with Parelaphostrongylus tenuis in blackbuck antelope



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 209(1): 140-142



Two outbreaks of P. tenuis infection were reported in 2 herds of black-buck antelope (Antilope cervicapra) in southwestern Louisiana in 1993 and 1994. In one herd, 6 of 27 antelope were affected and in the second herd 7 antelope were affected. All affected antelope were anorectic and weak and died after showing signs of staggering, trembling and recumbency. Meningeal worms were identified in only one antelope at PM examination.
