Abstract

A survey on Salmonella distribution was conducted in apparently healthy animals in and around Sapporo. The data are summarized as follows : 1. Salmonella was detected in 11 cases out of 355 (3.1%) dogs in Sapporo. Specimens were serological1y typed into 4 S. enteritidis, 6 S. typhi-murium and 1 S. thompson. S. thompson from dog is the first finding in Hokkaido. 2. From foxes, total 25 cultures of Salmonella were recovered in 19 cases out of 119 (16.0%). Sixteen of them were S. bareilly. Furthermore this is the first isolation from fox in Japan. The others are 6 S. typhi-murium and 3 S. enteritidis. Some cases showed incidence of 2 types. 3. No Salmonella was detected from 44 minks. 4. These Salmonella from dog and fox were detected from the mesenteric lymph node (70%), liver (30%), caecum contents (30%), spleen (20%) and kidney (3.3%).
