What two leptospira organisms usually attribute to canine leptospirosis?
What types of dogs are most commonly affected by Leptospirosis?
Male, large breed outdoor dogs
(German Shepherd or mix)
What can increase infection rates of Leptospirosis?
Wet periods of rainfall or flooding
What organs are the main targets of Leptospira organisms?
What disease is the most common cause of Acute Renal Failure/Nephritis?
If a dog has acute renal failure what should always be considered?
Serology for Leptospirosis

What treatment will reduce or eliminate leptospires being transmitted through urine of infected dog?
What clinical signs are associated with Brucellosis?
Generalized lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly
What enables Feline Coronavirus to cause FIP?
Mutation during intestinal replication enables it to infect macrophages and cause FIP
What is the deadliest infectious disease of cats?
What is the defining event in FIP?
replication of FCoV in macrophages
What are some factors that increase FCoV replication in intestines (increasing chance of FIP)?
Is FIP directly contagious?
No, cats with FIP shed avirulent nonmutated FCoV

HISTOPATH is gold standard
Combined w/ Immunohistochemistry and Immunofluorescence

True or False? The majority of FeLV-infected cats are asymptomatic at time of diagnosis
What is the preferred screening test (high sensitivity) for FeLV?
SNAP and Elisa tests (detects antigen)
What is the preferred confirmatory test (high specificity) for FeLV?
IFA Test (detects antigen)
What treatment is effective for treatment of FeLV?
What is the main route of transmission of FIV?
What is the most common secondary infection of FIV (and most common clinical sign)?
Stomatitis (oral disease)
What is the preferred screening test for FIV?
SNAP test or Immunoassay (ELISA) (detects antibodies)
What is the preferred confirmatory test for FIV?
Western Blot or IFA (detects antibodies)
