Salmonellosis is an acute infectious disease caused by salmonella, most often Salmonella typhimurium. Cats get sick much less often in dogs, although epizootics also occur, especially in kittens (R.M. Gaskell, M. Bennett, 1999). Infection occurs by alimentary by eating foods contaminated with salmonella, or meat of wild birds. Immunosuppression (an accompanying intestinal infection, long-term treatment with antibiotics or corticosteroids) is a contributing factor. The disease occurs in both acute and chronic form. Specified diagnosis should be put in the microbiological laboratory.

Symptoms: In acute cases, the disease manifests itself in the form of gastroenteritis. There is lethargy, diarrhea and vomiting, conjunctivitis, fever, refusal of food. Syndrome "withering" kittens.

In chronic course the disease has the appearance of bronchopneumonia. There are reports that illness in pregnant cats leads to abortions and stillbirth of kittens.

In severe cases, the disease leads to endotoxicosis and collapse.

First aid and treatment: manganese is added to the cat for drinking, and for detoxification of the body, furadonin, gamavit are given, and physiological saline is injected. A specific antibiotic is selected by the doctor after testing for the antibiotic sensitivity of the detected Salmonella. Neopen, albipen LA, cepha-kure are shown. It must be kept in mind that cats have salmonella that is resistant to many modern antibiotics.
Diarkan has a good effect, showing not only an antibacterial effect (Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Shigella), but also contributing to the restoration of water-salt balance in the intestine and preventing the transition of enteritis into a hemorrhagic form.

For stimulation of natural immunity, hemovit-plus, salmozan, immunofan, tsamax with spirulina or with seaweed can be used. To restore the intestinal microflora and prevent recurrence of the disease it is recommended to use lactoferon, veto-1.1. During the recovery period, vitamin-mineral supplements SA-37, "Gamma" are recommended.

Directed and timely antibiotic therapy allows to achieve full recovery.

Homeopathic treatment. The main drug is liarsin. Inside by? -1 tablet 3-4 times a day, until stool is normalized.

Phytotherapy. As a phytotherapeutic agent for detoxifying the intestinal tract and protecting the liver, it is recommended to use the "Cleansing Tea" phytoelite. Immunostimulating collection: Aralia Manchu (roots) - 15 g, Levzeya safflower - 15 g, hawthorn (fruits) - 15 g, rosehip cinnamon (fruits) - 15 g, Calendula medicinal (flowers) - 10 g, triple split (grass) - 10 g, black chokeberry (fruit) - 10 g, large plantain (leaves) - 10 g

  1. Salmonella
    Birds salmonellosis (Latin, English - Salmonellosis; paratyphoid, infectious diarrhea of ​​birds) is a disease characterized by an acute course in the form of septicemia in young and latent infection in adult birds. Historical background, distribution, degree of danger and damage. Salmonella is widespread. For the first time, salmonella was isolated from the organs of pigs by American veterinarians Salmon and Smith in 1885.
  2. Salmonella
    Salmonellosis (Latin, English - Salmonellosis; paratyphoid fever) - a large group of zoonotic diseases, mainly agricultural animals, characterized by young animals with acute fever, septicemia, toxicosis and diarrhea, and with subacute and chronic - pneumonia and arthritis; in adult females, abortions; in people it occurs in the form of food toxicoinfections (see color inset).
  3. Salmonellosis
    Salmonellosis (salmonellosis) is an infectious disease of birds, predominantly young, characterized by diarrhea, conjunctivitis, septicemia, bowel disease and exhaustion. Etiology. Pathogens S. typhimurium, S. enteritidis, S. сholeraesuis, short gram-negative, motile, spores and capsules that do not form sticks. In the external environment retains its biological properties
  4. Salmonella and their prophylaxis
    Earlier, according to the classification of foodborne diseases, salmonellosis was attributed to the group of microbial food poisoning causing toxicoinfection. Currently, according to the current classification, salmonellosis is attributed to the group of acute intestinal infections, where they are separated into an independent rubric: "Other Salmonella intestinal toxicoinfections". However, in their occurrence, course, prevention, they also
    Salmonellosis is an acute contagious disease affecting mainly puppies of weaning age. Etiology. The genus Salmonella includes 65 groups and is widely distributed in nature. Salmonella parasites in the body domestic, as well as wild animals, including birds, fish, reptiles. Many species are highly pathogenic and dangerous to humans. In dogs, Salm is more common. cholerae suis, S.
  6. Salmonella
    Salmonellosis (Latin, Eng. - Salmonellisis) - a disease of adult bees, manifested by the defeat of the digestive system. Pathogens. The disease can be caused by various members of the genus Salmonella: S. typhimurium, S. gallinarum-pullorum, S. enteritidis, S. dublin, S. florida (see part 1, Salmonella). Salmonella pathogens for animals and birds of many species and are often found
  7. Salmonellosis
    Salmonellosis (salmonellosis) is an infectious disease of young animals, characterized by a disorder of the function of the digestive tract, the development of toxemia, sepsis, and sometimes metritis and abortions. Etiology. The causative agent of the disease is a Gram-negative mobile rod with rounded ends, does not form a spore and capsules, is relatively stable in the external environment. Disease in small animals
  8. Salmonellosis
    Salmonellosis (salmonellosis) is an infectious disease of young farm animals and fur-bearing animals, characterized by acute course of fever and enteritis, and chronic infection - pneumonia and joint damage. Etiology. The pathogen in piglets - S. cholerae suis and its variants; in calves, S. dublin, less commonly S. typhimurium and S. enteritidis; in lambs - S. abortus ovis; in foals
  9. Salmonella
    Salmonellosis is an acute infectious disease caused by microbes of the genus Salmonella, occurring predominantly with damage to the gastrointestinal tract, less often in the form of generalized forms. Clinical diagnosis The incubation period for the alimentary route of infection is 12-24 hours, with the contact one, 3-7 days. Gastrointestinal form. Gastritis, enteritis, gastroenteritis. The start is hot. Fever, pain
  10. Salmonellosis
    Cause The causative agents of the disease are Salmonella, motile sticks with flagella, which are found in foods such as eggs, meat and milk. Favorable conditions for breeding Salmonella are created during hot weather. Products at risk include ice cream, creamy desserts, mayonnaise, salads, egg-protein-based dishes (creams, cakes), milkshakes, soft-boiled eggs, etc.

Tasks for self-study topics. Using the textbook and lecture material for the purchase

  13. Salmonellosis
    These are intestinal diseases caused by Salmonella bacteria (the exception is Salmonella, which causes typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever), with severe symptoms of intoxication of the body.
