Tularemia is an infection of the bacteria Francisella tularensis and is most common in rabbits and rodents. Infection in dogs occurs from ingestion of an infected animal, contaminated water, or the bite of a blood sucking insect. Tularemia causes mild illness in healthy dogs. More severe clinical signs include enlarged lymph nodes and draining abscesses. Tularaemia is a zoonosis (infection that could transmit from animals to humans), caused by the bacterium Francisella tularensis, capable of surviving for weeks at low temperatures in water, moist soil, hay, straw or animal carcasses.

American Academy of Pediatrics; ; v Preface “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times ” Charles Dickens, The continually emerging story of the bacterial disease tularemia (Francisella tularensis) is akin to a major theme of the Charles Dickens classic, “A Tale of Two Cities.”1 That theme is “the possibility of resurrection and transformation, both on a personal level and on a social level.”2.

Tularemia is a zoonotic infection caused by Francisella tularensis, an aerobic and fastidious gram-negative bacterium. Tularemia book infection occurs following contact with infected animals or invertebrate vectors.

It is caused by toxins in the blood produced by the bacterium Francisella bacteria can survive for weeks or months in a moist environment. A blood sample is needed. The sample is sent to a laboratory where it is examined for francisella antibodies using a method called serology. This method checks if your body has produced substances called antibodies to a specific foreign substance (), in this case F tularensis.

Antibodies are proteins that defend your body against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Get this from a library. Tularemia.

Tularemia is an illness caused by the bacteria Francisella tularensis. It is also called deer-fly fever or rabbit fever.

The bacteria that cause tularemia are often found in animals, such as rodents, birds, reptiles, and fish. The bacteria can survive for weeks at low temperatures in water, moist soil, hay, and straw. Tularemia was removed from the list of Nationally Notifiable Diseases in but was reinstated in because of concerns about tularemia as a biological weapon (CDC Summary of Notifiable Diseases—United States, ).

Cases of tularemia should be reported immediately to public health authorities, according to disease reporting rules. Tularemia (too-lah-REE-me-uh), sometimes called rabbit fever, is an infection caused by bacteria that can be spread to humans by wild animals.
