Abstract:
Brucellosis is one of the highly infectious and contagious zoonoses of livestock and domestic animals caused by the Brucella melitensis, Brucella abortus, Brucella canis and Brucella suis. Generally brucellosis in canines caused by B. canis but sometimes especially, when dogs come in contact with infected livestock, they may get infected by picking the B. abortus organisms. Further, because of its zoonotic importance, these dogs are also act as source of infection for human beings. Hence, the present study aims to determine status of B. abortus agglutinins in dogs in and around Korutla town. The sera samples (n=81) were aseptically obtained from apparently healthy dogs that were brought to the teaching veterinary clinical complex between June, 2022 and September, 2022 and the samples were subjected for screening for the presence of Brucella abortus agglutinins by using standard screening test, Rose Bengal plate agglutination test (RBT). The obtained results were statistically analyzed by employing chi- square test and Odds ratio analysis and identified the statistical significance of the association of various risk factors with occurrence of brucellosis in canines. The study displayed that the sero-positivity of brucellosis in canines as 6.1% (5/81). Further, the factors such as managemental practices (outdoor and indoor) (p= 0.033) and breeds of the dogs (p= 0.04) are considerably correlated with the occurrence of brucellosis in canines.
