Frequency of observed serovars of Leptospira. Pathogenic leptospires do not multiply cabina the host, therefore, to produce an outbreak of leptospirosis is necessary the presence of carrier animals and favorable conditions for the survival of the bacteria in the environment Acha and Szyfres Serologic study of feline leptospirosis in Theran, Iran.

LEPTOSPIROSIS CANINA by Mariai Restrepo on Prezi

Some animals suffer severe clinical signs of leptospirosis when they are infected with serovars for which they are not adapted and they are called “incidental hosts”. With a canija clinical disease and vaccination of longer than 3 months, an antibody titre of 1: Other techniques available for the diagnosis of leptospirosis in companion animals include darkfield microscopy observation, fluorescent antibody testing, histopathology, bacteriological culture and Polymerase Chain Reaction PCR Bolin This leptospiral serotype was isolated from dogs in the United States in Levett Zavitsanou A, F Babatsikou.

For pathogenic strains, about 24 serogroups have been described Picardeau Detailed information on the spread and distribution of the infection is important for the instigation of control measures and to increase awareness among pet owners and veterinarians. Rapid diagnostic assays must be accurate, user-friendly, relatively inexpensive, easy to interpret and stable under extreme leptosspirosis. Zoonosis y enfermedades transmisibles comunes al hombre y a los animales.

A serological survey of dogs, cats and horses in south-eastern Australia for leptospiral antibodies. Shophet noted that in felines, serological techniques alone sometimes are not sufficient to confirm a leptospiral infection because with some serovars, animals may shed the organisms in their urine without having a detectable serological titre or they may respond to infection peptospirosis low antibody titres that tends to decline rapidly.

The aim of this article is to review the main features of leptospirosis in domestic dogs and cats considering basic characteristics of the bacteria, to describe aspects on epidemiology, clinical signs and diagnosis, to highlight the potential zoonotic implications of the infection from pets to their owners and to revise some topics on prevention.

Fluorescent antibody testing can be performed in urine, blood and histologic samples Harkin et al a and it generally does not distinguish between serovars Langston and Heuter Leptospiirosis Am Vet Med Assoc. An individual may act as primary reservoir for one serovar but incidental host for others Levett The genus is divided in about 20 species based on DNA hybridization studies Leptosplrosis et al Point Veterinaire 39, Cerqueira G, M Picardeau.

In these species the infection is associated with high antibody titres and a short or negligible renal carrier state BolinGuerra Leptospirosis in dogs; a review with emphasis on clinical aspects. The degree of transmission of the infection depends on climate, population density and contact rates between incidental and leptospiorsis hosts Levett Given the specific response to a serovar, the heterologous protection of the current vaccines is incomplete Greene and Schultz Clin Microbiol Rev 14, Rev Soc Bras Med Trop 45, Arch Med Vet 19, Comp Inmun Microbiol Dis.

The World Health Organization classifies leptospirosis as a neglected tropical disease of global importance. Numerous species of wild and domestic mammals act as maintenance hosts and form reservoirs of the bacteria, with other species being incidental hosts that may develop the disease.
