AL-Qadisiyah Journal of Veterinary Medicine Sciences, 2015, Volume 14, Issue 1, Pages 1-3

The study was conducted to detect the Giardiasis in apparently healthy cattle by using direct ELISA technique. 85 fecal samples were collected and preserved in formalin saline 10% until testing. 76.4% (65 out of 85) of samples were revealed positive result of infection, and highest rate was recorded among young and males.

Prevalence of Rota virus, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Cryptosporidium spp. in feces of buffalo in Babil governorate

AL-Qadisiyah Journal of Veterinary Medicine Sciences, 2015, Volume 14, Issue 1, Pages 75-79

The aim of present study to determine the prevalence of rotavirus, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Cryptosporidium spp. in feces of buffalo in Babil governorate. Fecal samples were collected from (30 male, 50 female and 50 calves) of buffalo during the period of October 2013-March 2014. The percentage of infection with Rota virus was 10% in male, 8% in female and 12% in calves. The rate of isolation of E.coli O157:H7 was 10% in male, 8% female and 2% in exanimated calves. The oocystes of Cryptosporidium spp. was identified in feces of 13.3% of male, 12% of female and in 6% of calves. As a result of this study it can be concluded that buffalo serve as good reservoirs of most important enteropathogens and consider a potential source of infection to both domestic animals and human..
