The prevalence of antibodies against toxoplasma gondii in some ontario canada mammals

The prevalence of antibodies against toxoplasma gondii in some ontario canada mammals
A survey of serum samples from mammals trapped in Central Ontario [Canada] showed that many contained antibodies to T. gondii. The prevalence of infection as reflected by positive reactions in the Sabin-Feldman Dye Test appeared to be related to the type of diet of each species examined, and specifically, to the proportion of rodents in the diet. Of the fox [Vulpes vulpes] blood samples tested, 84% were positive. The percentage of positive samples diminished through coyote (Canis latrans), mink (Mustela vison), bear (Ursus americanus), fisher (Martes penanti), skunk (Mephitis mephitis), raccoon (Procyon lotor), marten (Martes martes) and rabbit (Sylvilagus floridanus). Blood samples from squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis), dear (Odocoileus virginianus), hare (Lepus americanus) and groundhog (Marmota monax) were negative.
