PASQUEL H., Silvia et al. Determination of the presence of campylobacter fetus subsp. Venerealis in alpacas and llamas in the Puno region. Rev. investig. vet. Perú [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.3, pp. 278-282. ISSN 1609-9117.
The presence of Camplylobacter fetus subsp. venerealis in South American camelides was evaluated. The animals were from the INIA-Quimsachata Research Centre located in the department of Puno. Vaginal and preputial swabs were collected from 244 alpacas and llamas between February and March 2007. Samples were analyzed by the direct immunofluorescence test using a commercial conjugate. None of the samples resulted positive. The probable mean prevalences using the @Risk software were 0.069 and 0.096% in alpacas and llamas respectively.
