SARS-CoV-2 natural infection in animals: a systematic review of studies and case reports and series
Vet Q. 2021 Dec;41(1):250-267. doi: 10.1080/01652176.2021.1970280.ABSTRACTCOVID-19 pandemic is essentially a zoonotic disease. In this context, early in 2020, transmission from humans to certain animals began reporting; the number of studies has grown since. To estimate the pooled prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 natural infection in animals and to determine differences in prevalence between countries, years, animal types and diagnostic methods (RT-PCR or serological tests). A systematic literature review with meta-analysis using eight databases. Observational studies were included but analyzed separately. We performed a random-ef...

SARS-CoV-2 natural infection in animals: A systematic review of studies and case reports and series
Conclusion: A considerable proportion of animals resulted infected by SARS-CoV-2, ranking minks among the highest value, followed by dogs and cats. Further studies in other animals are required to define the extent and importance of natural infection due to SARS-CoV-2. These findings have multiple implications for public human and animal health. One Health approach in this context is critical for prevention and control.PMID:34406913 | DOI:10.1080/01652176.2021.1970280 (Source: Veterinary Quarterly)

Prevalence and histopathological characterization of Masai Giraffe ( < em > Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi < /em > ) skin disease in Tarangire-Manyara ecosystem, Northern Tanzania
Conclusions: Our findings suggest the involvement of fungal infection in GSD pathogenesis.Clinical relevance: We recommend further characterization of the lesions using modern molecular techniques and culture to identify primary and secondary or opportunistic etiologies, and the order in which the pathogens occur in the lesions.PMID:34403624 | DOI:10.1080/01652176.2021.1970279 (Source: Veterinary Quarterly)

Thoracic radiographic features of fatal paraquat intoxication in eleven dogs
Conclusion: Pneumomediastinum and diffuse or symmetrical interstitial or alveolar lung patterns are the most common radiographic features in dogs with paraquat intoxication.Clinical relevance: In countries where this herbicide is not banned, paraquat intoxication should be considered if dogs with no history of trauma present with pneumomediastinum.PMID:34223806 | DOI:10.1080/01652176.2021.1950945 (Source: Veterinary Quarterly)
