  1. LATG: Chapters 12-13Common Diseases ofLab AnimalsLab Animal Serology

  2. Rats and Mice • Sendai Virus: affects mice, rats, hamsters, and guinea pigs • highly contagious and can be fatal in young • affects immune system; worsened by stress • clinical signs: dyspnea, chattering respiratory sounds, decreased litter size and stunted pups • RNA virus, Paramyxovirus (parainfluenza) • natural infection occurs via respiratory tract • dirty bedding transfer inadequate for detection

  3. Rats and Mice • Mycoplasmosis (CRD, MRM): • Mycoplasma pulmonis: causative agent • major problem in rats; stress worsens condition • primarily affects the respiratory tract • may cause inner or middle ear infection (head tilt) • can become endemic and difficult to eradicate • causes severe pathologic lesions in the lungs: abscesses, red to gray consolidation

  4. Rats and Mice • CAR (Cilia associated respiratory) bacillus: • gram negative bacteria attached to cilia • respiratory disease or lesions in rats, mice, rabbits, swine • require special staining techniques on histopathology • dirty bedding inadequate for detection

  5. Rats and Mice • Mouse Hepatitis Virus (MHV): • RNA, Cornavirus, affects mice only • one of the most common diseases of mice and highly contagious (still big problem today) • fecal-oral and aerosol transmission • encephalitis, hepatitis, or enteritis • fatal wasting disease in nude mice • causes immunosuppression during infection

  6. Rats and Mice • Sialodacryoadenitis Virus (SDAV): • RNA, Cornavirus (related to rat cornavirus and MHV), affect rats only • affects the salivary glands of rats • swelling in neck region, ophthalmic lesions (corneal ulcer, etc.), chromodacryorrhea, chromorhinorrhea • highly contagious and spread quickly, but develop immunity and cannot be reinfect • eradication: stop breeding and burns out • Harlan: recently had outbreak in Surgical Facility

  7. Rats and Mice • Ectromelia Virus (Mousepox): • DNA, Orthopoxvirus, affects mice only • rare in US, but several outbreaks have occurred in the past 5 yrs. • causes high morbidity and mortality • causes hepatitis, generalized rash (pox lesions) • transmitted through imported mice, injection of biological materials (serum, tumors) into mice • other signs: facial swelling, conjunctivitis, necrosis of distal limbs

  8. Rats and Mice • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus (LCMV): • RNA, Arenavirus, affects mice, hamsters • ZOONOTIC agent • only mice and hamsters transmit the agent • transmission through tissue cultures, transplantable tumors, feral animals • four different forms depending on animals age

  9. Rats and Mice • Pinworms (Oxyurids) • Syphacia oblevata, S. muris, Aspicularis tetraptera • affects rats, mice, hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, horses, NHP • probably # 1 contaminant in rat & mouse colonies in the US • no clinical signs (may cause rectal prolapse in young animals) • easily spread and survive in environment forever • fecal floatation, anal tape, or direct exam

  10. Rats and Mice • Ectoparasites: • Mites (Myobia sp.) and Lice (Polyplax sp.) • detection by examining pelt under microscope • pruritis, dermatitis, greasy coat, alopecia

  11. Guinea pigs • Bacterial pneumonia: • Bordetella bronchiseptica, Streptococcus pneumoniae • may cause anorexia, dyspnea, nasal discharge • Rabbits are carriers for B. bronchiseptica, therefore do not house G.P. and rabbits in the same area • Malocclusion: affects molars and premolars • weight loss, heavy salivation (slobbers)

  13. Rabbits • Pasteurellosis: • Pasteurella multocida: bacterial cause • very common in rabbits and difficult to treat • spread by aerosol or direct contact • diseases: snuffles (sneezing, nasal and ocular discharge), otitis media or interna, localized abscesses, genital infections, pneumonia

  14. Rabbits • Mucoid Enteropathy: • seen in 3-10 wk old rabbits that have been stressed • more common in rabbits following shipping • mucus in cage, anorexia, dehydration, distended abdomen, stained perianal fur • treatment: reduce food ration on arrival and increase dietary fiber (alfalfa cubes)

  15. Rabbits • Gastric Trichobezoar: • hairballs, very common in rabbits from pulling hair secondary to boredom • anorexia and no feces • treatment: mineral oil, laxative, or surgery • death secondary to hepatic lipidosis • prevention: high fiber diet

  16. Rabbits • Coccidiosis: • Intestinal (Eimeria sp.), Liver (Eimeria stiedae) • common in conventionally raised rabbits • diarrhea, poor weight gain, distended abdomen

  17. Dogs • Respiratory Infections: • very common in random source dogs • Parainfluenza, Adenovirus, etc • nasal discharge, cough, dyspnea, anorexia • Kennel Cough: • Bordetella bronchiseptica • mild and self-limiting, but highly contagious • harsh, dry cough

  18. Dogs • Parvovirus: • acute disease of young dogs • bloody diarrhea and severe panleukopenia • Otitis Externa: • bacteria, yeast, ear mites (Otodectes cynotis) • factors: dirt, trauma, hair, foreign bodies • excess head shaking and odor • Heartworms: • Dirofilaria immitis; spread by mosquitos • adults live in pulmonary artery, right artium, and right ventricle

  19. Cats • Urinary Disorders: • FUS (Feline Urologic Syndrome): cystitis, urethritis, urinary calculus • frequent painful urination, dysuria, hematuria • males cats more commonly affected • Otitis externa: Notoedres cati (ear mite) • Respiratory Diseases: • Feline Calcivirus and Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis

  20. Nonhuman Primates • Tuberculosis: • Mycobacterium tuberculosis, M. bovis, M. avium-intracellulare • Old world monkeys are very suspectible • usually contracted from humans • transmission: respiratory, intestinal, or cutaneous • spread rapidly among NHP, but disease has long slow progression

  21. Nonhuman Primates • Tuberculosis (con’t); • devasting to primate colony; quarterly testing of colony to prevent spread • signs: weight loss, pneumonia, skin ulceration, lymphadenopathy • highly zoonotic: mask, gown, surgical gloves • positive reactors: quarantine, test, euthanasia

  22. Nonhuman Primates • Measles: • Paramyxovirus (Morbillivirus-Canine Distemper) • contracted only through infected humans • fatal disease in NHP • staff must not work with NHP if infected • skin rash (Koplick spots), nasal or ocular discharge, pneumonia, facial edema

  23. Nonhuman Primates • Diarrhea: • common problem among NHP (new arrivals) • causes: stress, salmonella, shigella, protozoa, campylobacteria (zoonotic agents) • Bite Wounds: • more common among gang-housed animals • self mutilation • escape animals or finger pokers
