  • Implications for a successful FMD control program in Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Many discussions are ongoing as to the improvement of milk production in Sri Lanka from the selection of quality animals for breeding to nutrition management. This includes a lack of policies for the protection of local milk production and the improvement of animal health. It has been estimated that the loss of milk production was 73 million liters from 2018 to 2019 during the ongoing Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) outbreak (DAPH key statistics). FMD is a major contagious animal disease that impacts milk production. There is a scope to improve dairy production in the country by supporting small-scale dairy farmers by controlling infectious animal diseases such as FMD. This review aims at identifying the areas where attention should be focused, to implement effective control measures against FMD. Published on 2021-12-30 00:00:00
  • An overview of human brucellosis: a neglected zoonotic disease in

    • Abstract: Brucellosis is a neglected, zoonotic bacterial disease in humans with over 500, 000 new cases reported each year worldwide. Brucella abortus, B. melitensis, B. suis and B. canis have been detected in humans as causative agents of this zoonotic infection. The incidence of brucellosis varies greatly with several factors such as socio-economic status, association with livestock, occupation and food safety practices. Brucellosis is an endemic disease in Sri Lanka and only a few cases have been reported in humans in recent years. Human brucellosis is a common disease in the Mediterranean region, Middle East, Asia, South and Central America and Africa. The organism infects multiple hosts. Multiple routes of infection have been described for humans, the oral route being the most common. The common clinical signs in humans are undulant fever, fatigue, headache, chills and myalgia. Other signs and symptoms such as arthralgia, orchitis/epididymitis, acute renal failure, endocarditis, splenic abscess, spondylitis, arthritis, encephalitis hepatitis, osteoarticular manifestations, meningitis, and respiratory and cardiac complications also had been reported. Bacteriological culture, serology and nucleic acid amplification assays have been used as the basic diagnostic methods of brucellosis. The prevention strategy of human brucellosis recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) mainly consists of creating public awareness, improving hygienic practices in livestock farms and slaughterhouses, promoting the consumption of pasteurized milk, consumption of cooked meat, adhering to hygienic practices during laboratory handling of the organism and proper handling of companion animals. The recommended prevention and control methods of brucellosis in animals include culling of infected animals, vaccination and restriction of the movement of serologically positive animals. In conclusion, further emphasis must be given to improving diagnostic testing and raising awareness of brucellosis and its zoonotic implications among humans. Published on 2021-12-30 00:00:00
  • Preliminary screening of cloxacillin susceptibility in staphylococcal
           species isolated from healthy dogs presented to Veterinary Teaching
           Hospital, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: Staphylococcus spp are part of the normal flora of the skin of dogs where it is also found as an opportunistic pathogen. Antimicrobial resistance is changing over time and is generally rising steadily for those antimicrobials that are frequently used. The cloxacillin susceptibility of staphylococcus isolates from 30 healthy dogs, presented to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka was investigated in this study. Samples collected from both the ear canals and the skin of each dog were initially grown on nutrient agar identified using conventional biochemical methods. Out of the 64 Staphylococci isolates, 36(56.25%) were obtained from the skin surface and 28 (43.75%) isolates from the ear canals. The susceptibility of 64 isolates to cloxacillin was examined by cloxacillin-added agar medium (5μg/ml). Out of 64 isolates, 14 isolates (21.87%) of Staphylococcus spp were resistant to cloxacillin and 7 (50%) of them were S. aureus which was confirmed by biochemical tests. Out of 28 isolates of Staphylococcus spp from the ear canal, 2 (7.14%) isolates were resistant to cloxacillin, and out of 36 isolates from the skin, 12 (33.34%) isolates were resistant to cloxacillin. A high number of cloxacillin-resistant Staphylococci isolated from dogs reflects the emergence of cloxacillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus spp. This signals the need for antibiotic susceptibility testing in order to choose antimicrobial agents to treat diseases caused by resistant Staphylococcus spp and also paves the way for future studies paying more attention regarding development of cross-resistance to other antibiotics by these resistant strains.

  • The relationship between locomotion score and reproductive performance on
           an up-country largescale commercial dairy farm in Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: This study analysed data from a large-scale commercial Up- Country dairy farm, to better understand the impact of lameness on fertility. Over a 12-month period, cattle were locomotion scored five times (every 3 months). Lameness was defined as a locomotion score (LS) of >1 (1-5 scale) and thus included mildly-lame cows. The initial univariate analysis showed that cows which had two LS >1 in the first 180 days after calving and cows which had a LS>1 in the first 90 days after calving had a lower risk of pregnancy and a longer calving-to-conception interval than non-lame (LS=1) counterparts (p=0.019 and p=0.023 respectively). The multivariate model (Cox-proportional hazard model) identified that, although the hazard of pregnancy was still lower in cows with an LS>1 in the first 90 days after calving, the data were compatible with a reduction in the hazard and no effect (HR=0.68; 95% CI: 0.44-1.07). In contrast, cows that had two LS>1 in the first six months after calving (in both the 0-90- and 90-180-day periods) had a clear negative effect on the hazard of pregnancy. The hazard ratio for twice-lame cows in comparison with non-lame counterparts was 0.44 (95%CI 0.23-0.84), and the median calving-to-conception interval was 133 days longer. Although this data was from only one dairy herd, there is strong evidence that even mild lameness is associated with reduced fertility. Further research is needed from more Sri Lankan herds to better understand the impact of lameness on reproductive performance. Published on 2021-12-30 00:00:00
  • Phenotypic characterization of captive ponies in delft island, Sri Lanka

    • Abstract: he objective of the study was to phenotypically characterize the captive ponies that are present in Delft Island, Sri Lanka. Four qualitative traits and sixteen quantitative traits were measured in 10 ponies (9 males and 1 female). Collected data were statistically analyzed. The body weight of each pony was estimated, and information was collected regarding their management. Mean and Standard Deviation for each quantitative trait in centimeters were: face length 39.70 ± 4.22, face width 16.00 ± 1.67, ear length (left) 14.90 ± 0.92, ear length (right) 14.95 ± 0.79, muzzle circumference 39.55 ± 3.26, neck length 43.90 ± 2.39, neck circumference (at throat latch) 58.70 ± 5.46, neck circumference (at base) 78.85 ± 7.93, neck circumference (at midpoint) 65.75 ± 13.92, withers height 112.40 ± 5.44, rump height 109.60 ± 5.39, body length 67.45 ± 8.63, heart girth 119.30 ± 11.41, barrel girth 138.90 ± 12.27, cannon bone circumference (front) 18.90 ± 1.70, and cannon bone circumference (rear) 23.65 ± 1.55. Average weight was 85.66 ± 17.41 kg. Nine out of the 10 ponies were more than 7 years old. All the ponies had brown color coats with no markings on their bodies. The feral ponies present in the island are captured at a young age using ropes for taming. The expected lifespan is 20 years. The captive ponies are allowed free grazing and are not fed with concentrates or supplements. No regular deworming, vaccination or grooming is done. The captured ponies are not allowed to breed. Starvation and death during dry seasons are the most common issues. Published on 2020-12-30 00:00:00
  • A study of ultrasonographic characteristics of the cervix of bitches
           during anoestrus, oestrus, and pregnancy

    • Abstract: The main objective of the present study was to investigate the ultrasonographic characteristics of the cervix of bitches during anoestrus, oestrus, and pregnancy by using two-dimensional transabdominal ultrasonography. Ultrasonographic examinations were performed on 40 bitches using an ultrasound scanner (MyLab30vet, Esaote, Genoa, Italy) with a linear-array transducer (Esaote LA-522, Esaote, Genoa, Italy). According to the results, the cervix was a mild to moderate hyperechoic cylindrical structure lined by hyperechoic serosal margin in anoestrous bitches. The mean diameter of the cervix in anoestrus was 0.93 ± 0.37 cm (range, 0.59 - 1.81 cm), while the cervical canal could not be clearly demarcated by ultrasonography. However, in bitches in oestrus, the mean diameter of the cervix was 1.32 ± 0.11 cm (range, 1.2 - 1.45 cm). The cervical canal was visible as a hypoechoic irregular passage with the mean diameter of 1.5 ± 0.7 mm (range, 1.2 - 2.7 mm). In pregnant bitches, the mean diameter of the cervix was 1.57 ± 0.47 cm (range, 0.82 - 2.18 cm). The cervical canal of pregnant bitches was occluded with the cervical mucus plug which was heterogeneous echogenicity. The diameter of the cervix of pregnant bitches was significantly higher than that of bitches in anoestrus (P=0.001). Further, it was found that the diameter of the cervix increased when the pregnancy advanced. In conclusion, this study evaluated the morphological characteristics of the cervix in bitches during anoestrus, oestrus, and pregnancy. The findings of this study can be used as useful information to evaluate the cervix of bitches in clinical reproductive practice. Published on 2020-12-30 00:00:00
  • Effect of maternal antibodies on the immune response to different canine
           parvovirus vaccines and antibody response to selected vaccines

    • Abstract: Canine parvovirus (CPV) is the main cause of gastroenteritis and mortalities in young dogs worldwide. Despite vaccination, the outbreaks of canine parvovirus infection occur in many countries including Sri Lanka. Interference caused by maternally derived antibodies (MDA) is a main reason for vaccination failure. Present study assessed the level of CPV specific MDA in puppies prior to vaccination, the effect of MDA on the efficacy of different preparations of CPV vaccines and, evaluated the immunogenicity of selected CPV vaccines available commercially. Analysis of MDA in puppies born to vaccinated or unvaccinated mothers using commercially available point of care ELISA based test revealed the presence of protective levels of MDA titres at 8 weeks of age which can affect the immunogenicity of the vaccines containing inactivated virus or low viral titre (1000 HAU). The vaccines containing CCID 50 of ≥103-5 were able to induce antibody titres higher than protective level. Analysis of CPV-2 specific antibody titres, two weeks after completing the primary CPV vaccination (16-18 weeks of age) revealed that the dogs who received the vaccines containing CPV-2 or CPV-2b strain with >105 CCID 50 induced significantly high levels of mean antibody titre (vaccine “B”- p value = 0.004; vaccine “D” - p value = 0.022; vaccine “F”- p value = 0.032) when compared to the vaccine containing 1000 HAU. In conclusion, it was evident that the interference of MDA on CPV vaccines could be circumvented by using a live attenuated CPV vaccine having a high viral dose of CPV. Low viral dose vaccines and inactivated vaccines are not suitable for primary vaccination as those could be interfered by maternal immunity. Published on 2020-12-30 00:00:00
  • Review of Staphylococcus pseudintermedius infection in dogs and

    • Abstract: Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is a Gram-positive bacterium and coagulase positive organism commonly found in dogs. It is colonized in over 90% of healthy dogs and is the most common cause of dermatological infection, otitis externa and second most common cause of urinary tract infection. S. pseudintermedius is an opportunistic pathogen and host associated factors may play a big role on pathogenesis of an infection than virulence genes found in its bacterial genome. Number of molecular characterization techniques have been optimized for outbreak investigation, and understanding the bacterial infection and diversity of individual strains in a population would be beneficial to determine the source of infection and control strategies. Pathogenesis has not been fully investigated in S. pseudintermedius although it was extensively investigated in Staphylococcus aureus. Antimicrobial resistance is emerging in S. pseudintermedius and resistance was reported for the common drugs which are used in companion animal medicine. Methicillin resistance emerged in 1990 in Europe and the organism had been reported all over the world. Two epidemic clones of methicillin resistant S. pseudintermedius were identified as ST 71 and ST 68, European and North American epidemic clones, respectively. Multi drug resistance was reported both in methicillin resistant and methicillin susceptible S. pseudintermedius in dogs. S. pseudintermedius causes secondary infection in humans, and is often underreported or misdiagnosed as S. aureus in diagnostic laboratories. The organism is commonly found in dog bite wounds. Immunocompromised patients and people who suffer metabolic diseases are more susceptible for S. pseudintermedius when they have close contact with the canine host. Published on 2020-12-30 00:00:00
  • Diagnosis and surgical correction of pyloric stenosis in a dog – a
           case study

    • Abstract: Pyloric stenosis, which could occur as a congenital or acquired condition, is more common in dogs when compared with other domestic animals. This condition has not been reported in Sri Lanka probably due to unfamiliarity with it and lack of diagnostic facilities. This communication discusses the clinical signs, radiographic and ultrasonographic findings, and treatment of pyloric stenosis in a one-year old female Cocker Spaniel presented to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH), Peradeniya. The patient developed projectile vomiting and distended, gas filled abdomen after meals as clinical signs. Survey radiographic findings included the 'gravel sign' in the stomach. In ultrasonography, thickened pylorus was observed. Contrast radiographs after oral administration of barium sulphate suspension showed a delay of gastric emptying. All the above findings suggested that the patient had pyloric stenosis. Complete blood count and serum biochemistry demonstrated no abnormalities. Surgical intervention was performed as treatment, using Fredet-Ramstedt pyloromyotomy together with Heineke-Mikulicz pyloroplasty to clear the obstruction in the pyloric canal. Since there were no post-surgical complications, patient was discharged in 4 days following the surgery. The prognosis was satisfactory and the animal has been healthy after the surgery. The pyloric stenosis observed in this case could be congenital, with hypertrophy and subsequent stenosis gradually worsening over time. Published on 2020-12-30 00:00:00
  • Infectious bursal disease – a review

    • Abstract: Infectious bursal disease is a highly contagious disease that accounts for significant economic losses in the poultry industry around the globe including Sri Lanka. The causative agent is Infectious Bursal Disease Virus (IBDV) in the genus Avibirnavirus of the family Birnaviridae. Among the two major serotypes of IBDV, clinical disease in poultry is caused by serotype 1, which is further classified into three pathotypes, classical virulent, antigenic variant and very virulent. Young chicken of three to six weeks of age are more susceptible for the disease and the clinical signs include exhaustion, prostration, dehydration, watery diarrhoea and ruffled feathers. The virus causes severe damage to lymphocytes in the Bursa of Fabricious of poultry. Consequent immunosuppression increases the susceptibility of the affected chicks to other diseases and cause unresponsiveness to vaccines. In spite of the control measures taken, IBD continues to be a major constraint in the poultry industry. This review extensively discusses the characteristics of the virus, its genome and the functions of each virus coded protein, circulating virus pathotypes and their emergence, host pathogen interactions, pathogenesis, and pathology of the disease. Further, we have reviewed and summarized the current information about the epidemiology of IBD in both local and global perspective, the available diagnostic techniques, prevention and control strategies and the challenges encountered in that process. Considering the enormous economic importance of IBD, this review is aimed to benefit the scientific fraternity, veterinary practitioners, veterinary students, researchers and diagnosticians, which will in turn help in the better and effective management and ultimately control of this disease.
