  • Entomología médica y veterinaria

  • Consumption of Ornamental Plants as a Supplement to the Spider Monkey Diet
           (Ateles fusciceps robustus)

    • Abstract: Resumen El objetivo de este trabajo fue determinar la palatabilidad de Monstera deliciosa Liebm, Eugenia myrtifolia sims y Justicia carnea lindl en programas de alimentación de mono araña de cabeza negra (Ateles fusciceps robustus). Esta investigación se desarrolló en la Fundación Zoológico Santacruz, localizada en el San Antonio del Tequendama (Colombia). Se utilizaron ocho animales adultos en cautiverio, los cuales tuvieron una ración complementaria. Asimismo, se ofreció forraje producido en el centro de conservación con 60 días de rebrote. Además, se determinó el consumo de forraje verde y materia seca de la planta completa y de cada fracción (hojas y tallos); y se evaluó la relación hoja: tallo y la calidad nutricional de la planta completa y de cada fracción. En el proceso, se empleó un diseño dado completamente al azar y de estadística descriptiva; para ello, se utilizó el programa Infostat®. Se presentaron diferencias entre especies en el consumo de forraje verde y materia seca de la planta completa (p = 0,0001, p < 0,0001, respectivamente) y de las fracciones hoja (p = 0,0002, p = 0,0001, respectivamente) y tallo (p < 0,0001, p < 0,0001, respectivamente). Como resultado, las especies presentaron buena calidad nutricional, siendo mayor en J. carnea, seguida de M. deliciosa y E. myrtifolia y se notó una relación positiva hoja: tallo, aunque se presentaron diferencias (p < 0,0001) entre las especies. Las especies evaluadas presentan potencial para ser utilizadas en los centros de conservación en cautiverio en planes de alimentación para Ateles fusciceps robustus.Abstract This article aims to determine the palatability of Monstera deliciosa Liebm, Eugenia myrtifolia sims and Justicia carnea lindl in marimonda (Ateles fusciceps robustus) feeding programs. This research was developed at the Santacruz Zoo Foundation, located in San Antonio del Tequendama (Colombia). In the study, eight adult animals in captivity were used, which had a complementary ration. Likewise, forage produced in the conservation center was offered with 60 days of regrowth, the consumption of green forage and dry matter of the complete plant and of each fraction (leaves and stems) was determined. Also, the leaf: stem ratio and the nutritional quality of the complete plant and of each fraction were evaluated. It is worth to mention, a design was used for completely randomized and descriptive statistics, and the Infostat® program was used. There were differences between species in the consumption of green forage and dry matter of the whole plant (p = 0.0001, p < 0.0001, respectively) and of the leaf fractions (p = 0.0002, p = 0.0001, respectively) and stem (p < 0.0001, p < 0.0001, respectively). In the explored case, the species presented good nutritional quality, being higher in J. carnea, followed by M. delicious and E. myrtifolia and positive leaf: stem ratio were apparent, although there were differences (p < 0.0001) between species. The evaluated species have the potential to be used in captive conservation centers as feeding plans for Ateles fusciceps robustus.
  • Pet Ownership and Cultural Aspects associated with Exposure to Zoonoses in
           La Coipa, Cajamarca, Peru

    • Abstract: Resumen La tenencia irresponsable de perros y gatos y el desconocimiento de las enfermedades que transmiten puede poner en riesgo la salud de las personas, y dificulta implementar programas de control. El objetivo del presente estudio fue describir la tenencia de animales de compañía y los conocimientos y prácticas relacionadas con la exposición a zoonosis entre pobladores del distrito La Coipa, Cajamarca, Perú, en el año de 2019. El estudio, emprendido con base en encuestas, recolectó información sobre las características de la tenencia de perros y gatos, así como los conocimientos y las prácticas con relación a la exposición a zoonosis por animales de compañía, los accidentes por mordeduras y la presencia de perros vagabundos. Se entrevistó a 280 personas: 46,4 % de zona urbana y 53,6 % de zona rural. Respectivamente, el 70,7 % y 50,7% poseían perros y gatos. La relación persona: perro fue de 3 y persona: gato de 5. La utilidad principal del perro fue de guardián y del gato fue controlador biológico de roedores. El 83,3 % de los poseedores de perros, los vacunaban contra la rabia. El 64,4 % controlaba la reproducción de perros y gatos mediante el encierro. El 60,9 % manifestó haber sufrido una mordedura de perro. El 98,2 % señaló que los perros vagabundos eran un problema y el 70 % consideraba que estos tenían dueño. Se concluye que la población estudiada requiere capacitación en tenencia de animales de compañía para mejorar el bienestar animal, así como para disminuir la exposición de las personas a zoonosis, accidentes por mordedura y contaminación ambiental.Abstract Irresponsible dog and cat ownership and lack of knowledge about the diseases they transmit can put people's health at risk and make it difficult to implement control programs. The aim of the present study was to describe companion animal ownership and knowledge and practices related to zoonosis exposure among villagers in La Coipa district, Cajamarca, Peru, in 2019. The study, undertaken on a survey basis, collected information on the characteristics of dog and cat ownership, as well as knowledge and practices regarding exposure to zoonoses from companion animals, biting accidents, and the presence of stray dogs. A total of 280 people were interviewed: 46.4% from urban areas and 53.6% from rural areas. Respectively, 70.7% and 50.7% owned dogs and cats. The person: dog ratio was 3 and person: cat ratio was 5. The main use of the dog was as a guardian and of the cat was as a biological rodent controller. The 83.3 % of dog owners vaccinated their dogs against rabies. 64.4% controlled the reproduction of dogs and cats by confinement. 60.9% stated that they had suffered a dog bite. The 98.2% indicated that stray dogs were a problem and 70% considered that these dogs had owners. It is concluded that the population studied requires training in pet ownership to improve animal welfare, as well as to reduce the exposure of people to zoonosis, bite accidents and environmental contamination.
  • Twin Delivery of 310 Days of Gestation in a Mare Resulting in One Live
           Foal and One Autolysed Foal

    • Abstract: Resumen Las preñeces gemelares son gestaciones de alto riesgo, tanto para la yegua como para ambos fetos. Hoy en día existen diferentes técnicas para evitar el avance de este tipo de eventos, tanto en sus inicios como en gestaciones avanzadas. Aun así, existen múltiples casos de gestaciones dobles que presentan diferentes resultados ya evidenciados. En este caso se reportó una yegua de raza polo argentino de ocho años, que llegó al Centro de Perinatología Equina Foal Care por presentar gestación gemelar de 292 días. Se prolongó la gestación durante dieciocho días más, con ayuda de terapia farmacológica. Finalmente, nació un potro vivo con múltiples complicaciones, incluyendo el hecho de ser un potro prematuro. El segundo potro nació muerto con características de momificación y autolisis. En conclusión, se requirió de un adecuado monitoreo reproductivo por parte del veterinario para prevenir el avance de este tipo de gestación.Abstract Nowadays, there are different techniques to avoid the progression of this type of events, both in early and advanced gestations. Even so, there are multiple cases of double gestations that present different results already evidenced. In this case, an eight-year-old Argentine polo mare was reported, who arrived at the Foal Care Equine Perinatology Center because she presented a twin gestation of 292 days. The gestation was prolonged for eighteen more days, with the help of pharmacological therapy. Finally, a live foal was born with multiple complications, including being a premature foal. The second foal was stillborn with mummification and autolysis characteristics. In conclusion, adequate reproductive monitoring by the veterinarian was required to prevent the progression of this type of gestation.
  • In vivo Anthelmintic Activity of Tephrosia vogelii on Gastrointestinal
           Strongyles in Naturally Infected Goats

    • Abstract: Resumen Con el objetivo de determinar el efecto antihelmíntico de la especie Tephrosia vogelii sobre estrongílidos gastrointestinales de caprinos, se recolectaron hojas de la planta y se obtuvo un extracto bruto. Treinta caprinos infectados naturalmente se dividieron en tres grupos de diez animales cada uno. Grupo I (control) al cual se le administraron 50 ml de agua destilada; grupo II, al que se les administró una dosis diaria del extracto de 100 mg/kg, y grupo III, que recibió una dosis diaria del extracto de 150 mg/kg. El tratamiento se realizó oralmente por tres días consecutivos. Los conteos de huevos en mostraron que los animales presentaban una parasitosis gastrointestinal compuesta de los géneros Haemonchus spp. Trichostrongylus spp. y Oesophagostomum spp., siendo Haemochus spp. el de mayor proporción (75 %). La reducción de los conteos de huevos fue del 91 % y el 94 % para los grupos II y III, respectivamente, a los 14 días postratamiento.Abstract This study aims to determine the anthelmintic effect of an extract of Tephrosia vogelii on gastrointestinal strongyles of goats. Leaves were collected, from which an aqueous extract was obtained. Thirty naturally-infected goats were divided in three groups of ten animals each as follows: group I (control), with each animal receiving 50 ml of distillated water; group II, with each animal receiving 100 mg/kg of the extract; and group III, with each animal receiving 150 mg/kg of the extract. Treatments were administered orally on three consecutive days. The faecal test revealed that the genera present in the goats were Haemonchus spp., Trichostrongylus spp. y Oesophagostomum spp., with Haemonchus spp. being the most prevalent genus (75%). The faecal egg count reductions 14 days pos-treatment were 91% and 94% for groups II and III, respectively.
  • Prevalence of Intestinal Parasites in Children Population of Tamburco
           (Peru) Associated with Hygiene and Animal Husbandry Practices

    • Abstract: Resumen Las infecciones parasitarias intestinales son una de las mayores dificultades socioeconómicas y médicas de todo el mundo. El objetivo de esta investigación fue determinar la prevalencia de parásitos intestinales en niños y su asociación a prácticas de higiene y crianza de animales. La investigación fue observacional, básica, analítica y transversal. La población en estudio estuvo conformada de 542 niños de educación primaria del distrito de Tamburco, Perú. Se recolectaron muestras fecales de 225 niños de ambos sexos. Dichas muestras fueron analizadas con la técnica directa con lugol y solución salina fisiológica. El análisis cuantitativo de Kato-Katz se desarrolló en el laboratorio de la Micro Red de Salud Micaela Bastidas, en Tamburco. Se efectuaron las pruebas de chi-cuadrado de Pearson, odds ratio e intervalos de confianza con niveles de confianza de 95 % mediante el programa SPSS 23. Asimismo, se realizó un análisis de regresión logística multivariada. La prevalencia de parásitos intestinales en los niños fue del 63,6 % (143/225; IC 95 %=57,1-70,1). Los niños que no se lavan las manos antes de comer tuvieron mayor riesgo de infección con Blastocystis sp. (OR=20,8), Entamoeba coli (OR=16,9) y Giardia lamblia (OR=6,2) (p < 0,01). Además, los niños que caminan descalzos tuvieron 2,1 veces más riesgo de infectarse con Blastocystis sp. (p < 0,05). En conclusión, la prevalencia de parásitos intestinales en los niños de Tamburco fue alta y estuvo asociada con los hábitos de no lavarse las manos antes de comer y caminar descalzos.Abstract Intestinal parasitic infections are one of the greatest socioeconomic and medical difficulties worldwide. The objective of this research was to determine the prevalence of intestinal parasites in children and their association with hygiene and animal husbandry practices. The research was observational, basic, analytical and cross-sectional. The study population consisted of 542 primary school children from the district of Tamburco, Peru. Fecal samples were collected from 225 children of both sexes. These samples were analyzed using the direct technique with lugol and physiological saline solution. The quantitative Kato-Katz analysis was performed in the laboratory of the Micro Red de Salud Micaela Bastidas, in Tamburco. Pearson's chi-square tests, odds ratios and confidence intervals with confidence levels of 95% were performed using SPSS 23 software. The prevalence of intestinal parasites in children was 63.6% (143/225; 95% CI=57.1-70.1). Children who did not wash their hands before eating had a higher risk of infection with Blastocystis sp. (OR=20.8), Entamoeba coli (OR=16.9) and Giardia lamblia (OR=6.2) (p < 0.01). In addition, children walking barefoot were 2.1 times more at risk of becoming infected with Blastocystis sp. (p < 0.05). In conclusion, the prevalence of intestinal parasites in Tamburco children was high and was associated with the habits of not washing hands before eating and walking barefoot.
  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic Description of Equine Pythiosis: Case Report

    • Abstract: Resumen La pythiosis se relaciona comúnmente con ambientes tropicales húmedos y pantanosos. Esta es considerada una enfermedad piogranulomatosa, la cual afecta principalmente en equinos la piel y el tejido subcutáneo. Además, ocurre con mayor frecuencia en los miembros, el rostro y la región abdominal. Se presenta a la clínica veterinaria de la Corporación Universitaria Remington un equino de sexo hembra, pelaje pinto, con una edad de once años; el motivo de consulta de la paciente es una lesión a nivel ventral abdominal, la cual es de tijo granulomatoso ulcerativo y aparentemente necrótico. El animal presenta secreción mucopurulenta activa y continua con varios tractos fistulosos. Asimismo, al lavado de la herida se evidencia la presencia de estructuras compatibles con kunkers. El plan diagnóstico incluye hemograma y química sanguínea básica. Se envía un hisopado de la herida con el fin de evaluar el crecimiento bacteriano en el cultivo y el antibiograma. A nivel terapéutico, se inicia VeterflucinaR (compuesto a base de penicilina G, estreptomicina, flumetasona) y metronidazol a nivel local. Se realizan infiltraciones en la lesión con KenacortR (acetato de triamcinolona); la respuesta al tratamiento instaurado es parcialmente efectiva, con lo cual se decide hacer la remoción quirúrgica de la herida, retirando una estructura con una longitud de 15 cm de largo, 7 cm de ancho y un peso de 300 gramos. El animal responde satisfactoriamente a la cirugía y a la fecha no ha mostrado reincidencia de la patología.Abstract Pythiosis is commonly associated with humid and swampy tropical environments. It is considered a pyogranulomatous disease, which in equines mainly affects the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It occurs most frequently in the limbs, face and abdominal region. To the veterinary clinic of the Remington University Corporation is presented an equine of female sex, pinto coat, with an age of eleven years. The patient arrives on the occasion of consultation of a lesion present at the ventral abdominal level, which is granulomatous, ulcerative and apparently necrotic. It presents a lot of purulent discharge active and continuous with several fistulous tracts. To the washing of the wound the presence of structures compatible with Kunkers is evidenced. The diagnostic plan includes blood count and basic blood chemistry. A swab of the wound is sent in order to evaluate the bacterial growth in the culture and the antibiogram. At the therapeutic level, treatment starts with Veterflucina® (composed of penicillin G, streptomycin, flumetasone) and metronidazole locally. Infiltrations are performed in the lesion with Kenacort® (triamcinolone acetate). The response to the treatment established is partially effective, which is why it is decided to perform the surgical removal of the wound by removing a structure with a length of 15 cm long, 7 cm wide and weighing 300 grams. The animal responds satisfactorily to surgery and to date it has not shown recurrence of the pathology.
  • Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma with Systemic Metastasis in a Female White
           Bengal Tiger (Panthera tigris tigris)

    • Abstract: Resumen La presencia del melanoma maligno cutáneo en felinos exóticos está pobremente reportada. Una hembra de tigre de Bengala blanca (Panthera tigris tigris), de 6 años, no castrada, solitaria y viviendo en un ambiente adecuado, fue evaluada por la presencia de una masa cerca del ojo izquierdo. La histopatología de la biopsia remitida mostró la presencia de melanocitos con características anaplásicas (pleomorfismo, citomegalia, cariomegalia, binucleación), área hemorrágica y foco inflamatorio fibrinoso. El diagnóstico histopatológico fue melanoma maligno. Dos meses después del diagnóstico, la tigresa manifestó un deterioro considerable con pérdida de peso y presencia de una masa redonda en el cuello. En aquel momento, por su tamaño, el melanoma obstruía totalmente la visión. Con base en esto, y por razones humanitarias, el animal fue eutanasiado. Al momento de la necropsia, se observó metástasis en pulmones, pleura y riñones. Este caso evidencia la importancia de dar a conocer la presentación de melanomas en especies poco reportadas.Abstract The occurrence of cutaneous malignant melanoma in exotic felids is poorly reported. A 6-year-old, unneutered, solitary, female white Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), living in a suitable environment, was evaluated for the presence of a mass near the left eye. Histopathology of the referred biopsy showed the presence of melanocytes with anaplastic features (pleomorphism, cytomegaly, karyomegaly, binucleation), hemorrhagic area and fibrinous inflammatory focus. The histopathological diagnosis was malignant melanoma. Two months after diagnosis, the tigress manifested considerable deterioration with weight loss and the presence of a round mass on the neck. At that time, because of its size, the melanoma totally obstructed vision. Based on this, and for humane reasons, the animal was euthanized. At the time of necropsy, metastasis was observed in the lungs, pleura and kidneys. This case demonstrates the importance of raising awareness of melanomas in underreported species.
  • Histological and Histochemical Description of the Pancreas in the Adult
           Lesser Capybara (Hydrochoerus isthmius)

    • Abstract: Abstract The aim of this study was to describe histologically and histochemically the pancreas of three adult Hydrochoerus isthmius, attacked by feral dog in Buenavista, Córdoba, Colombia. A complete necropsy was performed and pancreatic fragments were collected and stored in 10% buffered formalin and Bouin liquid. Then, they were dehydrated, diaphanized and embedded in paraffin, stained with Hematoxylin & Eosin, P.A.S., Gomori trichrome, Grimelius and Masson Fontana modified. The H. isthmius pancreas presented a duodenal mesenteric pattern. The exocrine portion was described as a composite tubuloacinar gland. The endocrine portion of the pancreas was constituted by pancreatic islets of Langerhans and a diffuse neuroendocrine system. The histological and histochemical techniques used allowed us to identify the exocrine and endocrine portion of the organ. It is suggested to complement this study with some special techniques for the identification of specific endocrine cells, such as Beta, Alpha, Delta, Epsilon, PP or Gamma.Resumen El objetivo del presente estudio fue describir histológica e histoquímicamente el páncreas de tres individuos adultos de Hydrochoerus isthmius atacados por perros ferales en Buenavista, Córdoba, Colombia. Se realizó una necropsia completa y se recolectaron fragmentos pancreáticos, los cuales se almacenaron en formol tamponado al 10 % y líquido Bouin. Luego, fueron deshidratados, diafanizados y embebidos en parafina; teñidos con hematoxilina y eosina, P.A.S., tricrómico Gomori, Grimelius y Masson Fontana modificado. El páncreas de H. isthmius presentó un patrón mesentérico duodenal. La porción exocrina fue descrita como una glándula tubuloacinar compuesta. La porción endocrina del páncreas estaba constituida por islotes pancreáticos o Langerhans, y un sistema neuroendocrino difuso. En ese contexto, las técnicas histológicas e histoquímicas utilizadas permitieron identificar la porción exocrina y endocrina del órgano. Se sugiere complementar este estudio con algunas técnicas especiales para la identificación de células endocrinas específicas, como Beta, Alpha, Delta, Epsilon, PP o Gamma.
  • Eco-environmental Factors Related to Potential Reservoirs of Leptospira
           spp. in the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, Buenos Aires, Argentina

    • Abstract: Resumen Las modificaciones ambientales generan entornos de interfaz en los que la transmisión de Leptospira spp. puede verse afectada. Con el objetivo de identificar y analizar variables ecoambientales asociadas a potenciales reservorios de Leptospira spp. en la Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur (RECS) (Buenos Aires, Argentina) y áreas urbanizadas contiguas, se realizó un muestreo por conveniencia en líneas transectas, estratificado y proporcionado. Fueron capturados 170 mamíferos de 11 especies y se analizó la presencia de Leptospira spp. por serología, cultivo y PCR. En áreas conservadas, se registraron mayormente Didelphis albiventris y Deltamys kempi, mientras que Oligoryzomys flavescens también fue hallado en áreas degradadas, y Rattus norvegicus solo fue encontrada en áreas degradadas. No se detectó Leptospira spp. en los mamíferos silvestres. Un perro sin tenedor responsable resultó positivo por serología. Las condiciones ambientales de la RECS sugieren un ecosistema poco propicio para Rattus, evidenciando la importancia de la conservación de áreas naturales en entornos urbanos.Abstract Environmental modifications generate interface environments in which Leptospira spp. transmission may be affected. In order to identify and analyze eco-environmental variables associated with potential reservoirs of Leptospira spp. in the Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur (RECS) (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and adjacent urbanized areas, a stratified and proportionate transect line convenience sampling was carried out. A total of 170 mammals of 11 species were captured and analyzed for the presence of Leptospira spp. by serology, culture and PCR. In conserved areas, Didelphis albiventris and Deltamys kempi were mostly recorded, while Oligoryzomys flavescens was also found in degraded areas, and Rattus norvegicus was only found in degraded areas. Leptospira spp. were not detected in wild mammals. One dog without a responsible keeper tested positive by serology. The environmental conditions of the RECS suggest a poor ecosystem for Rattus, demonstrating the importance of the conservation of natural areas in urban environments.
  • Determination of Antibodies against Bovine Viral Diarrhea (BVD) in Diry
           Cows in a Municipality of Boyacá (Colombia)

    • Abstract: Resumen La diarrea viral bovina (DVB) es una patología infecciosa generada por un pestivirus de distribución mundial, causante de problemas reproductivos y pérdidas económicas. El objetivo del presente estudio fue establecer la positividad al virus de diarrea viral bovina (vDVB) en vacas del municipio de Tuta (Boyacá, Colombia), y analizar los grupos etarios, raciales y las variables reproductivas y de manejo como posibles factores de riesgo. Se tomaron 374 muestras de sangre, a las cuales se les realizó la prueba ELISA indirecta, implementando el kit Serelisa® BVD p80 Ab Mono Blocking; los datos se procesaron con EpiInfo®. Se encontró una seroprevalencia del 41,7 %. Los cruces raciales y los bovinos >4 años presentaron la seroprevalencia más alta. Los animales >4 años (p= 0,0000001922) presentaron asociación estadística con la presencia de la enfermedad, y se consideró factor de riesgo para vDVB. Se deben establecer programas de control y prevención que dificulten su diseminación en la zona.Abstract Bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) is an infectious pathology generated by a pestivirus of worldwide distribution, which causes reproductive problems and economic losses. The objective of this study was to establish bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) positivity in cows from the municipality of Tuta (Boyacá, Colombia), and to analyze age and racial groups and reproductive and management variables as possible risk factors. A total of 374 blood samples were taken and the indirect ELISA test was performed using the Serelisa® BVD p80 Ab Mono Blocking kit; the data were processed with EpiInfo®. A seroprevalence of 41.7% was found. Crossbreds and cattle >4 years had the highest seroprevalence. Animals >4 years old (p= 0.0000001922) were statistically associated with the presence of the disease and were considered a risk factor for BVDV. Control and prevention programs should be established to hinder its dissemination in the area.
