dogs, infectious enteritis, causative agents of infectious enteritis, features of the manifestation of enteritis


With the recent development of dog breeding, there has been an increase in the frequency of cases of infectious pathology of dogs with a symptom complex of the gastrointestinal tract lesion and development of enteritis. The aim of the work is to study the species composition of causative agents of infectious enteritis in dogs and clinical features of their manifestation in the conditions of Kamianets-Podilskyi District. When conducting complex laboratory studies, it has been found that among all the pathologies of the digestive tract of dogs, the share of infectious enteritis is 69.7%. In other cases, enteritis of invasive or non-infectious origin has been found. A wide species spectrum of causative agents of infectious enteritis of dogs has been revealed, causing independent pathologies of viral (parvo-, adeno-, corona-, rota-, paramyxovirus infections) and bacterial (campylobacteriosis, salmonellosis) origin in 53.0% of animals. The share of associated enteritis of dogs of infectious origin is 47%. At the same time, in most cases (73.0%), a combination of two specific causative agents with the dominance of associations of parvo- and coronavirus (23.1%), parvo- and adenovirus (13.0%) and adeno- and coronavirus (13.0%) has been found. The clinical picture of infectious pathologies of the gastrointestinal tract in dogs has been characterized primarily by the presence of dyspeptic phenomena. In the vast majority of cases, diarrhea syndrome (94.0%) and vomiting (91.1%) have been found. The obtained results will further optimize the elimination and preventive measures for the spread of infectious enteritis of infectious origin.
