Abstract

Instructions and control measures related to enteric contagious diseases at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Montreal are presented. These control measures, which have given satisfactory results within the past decade, are exemplified by a salmonellosis outbreak that occurred in spring 1996 in the large animal clinic of the VMTH. Emphasis was put on the importance of antigenic and/or genetic characterizations of Salmonella isolates, in order to detect an eventual source of contamination, but also to determine the incidence of nosocomial infections among hospitalized animals.
