The prevalence of Giardia in dogs and cats in Perth, Western Australia

, : The prevalence of Giardia in dogs and cats in Perth, Western Australia. Australian Veterinary Journal 63(4): 110-112

A survey of dogs and cats in the Perth metropolitan area revealed a high prevalence of Giardia. Overall, 21% of 333 dogs and 14% of 226 cats were infected. More dogs and cats from refuges and breeding establishments were infected than household pets, although among the latter a significant number of dogs (9%) and cats (8%) was infected. Giardia did not show any breed or sex predisposition but prevalence was higher in young animals. The species of Giardia present in dogs and cats was identified as G. duodenalis, which is the same as that affecting man. The potential significance of this animal reservoir of infection to man is discussed in the light of increasing evidence that Giardia is a zoonosis.

To assess the role of neuromedin B receptor (NMB-R) on the modulation of serotonergic (5-HT) system, the function of the 5-HT system was examined in mice lacking the NMB-R gene. Immunohistochemical analysis of brain sections revealed that 5-HT exp...

Background The non-essential amino acid, L-glutamine (Gln), is abundant in the human body. Gln exhibits beneficial effects on endotoxic shock through the inhibition of cytosolic phospholipase A(2) (cPLA(2)) activity. cPLA(2) has been reported to b...
