Abstract:

The aim of this cross sectional study was to estimate the prevalence of exposure to Brucella canis owned and stray dogs in Grenada. Documentation of exposure to this important bacterial pathogen in dogs will facilitate instituting appropriate prevention and control measures and education of the public about potential zoonotic implications. Serum samples were collected from 255 stray and 204 owned dogs in Grenada from 2009 to 2011. Sera were initially screened with the rapid slide agglutination test and the positive samples further tested with 2-mercaptoethanol rapid slide agglutination test. Exposure to B. canis was found in 10 stray dogs but none in owned dogs.
