Seroprevalence of leptospirosis in horses in the territory of Belgrade during the period from 1998 to 2008
Scientific Veterinary Institute of Serbia, Belgrade

Abstract

Serological investigations of leptospirosis in horses were carried out in the epizootic territory of Belgrade during the period from 1998 to 2008. Serological examinations were performed on 1701 blood serum samples of horses from private and sociallyowned stables, riding clubs, hippodromes, and from the individual sector. The number of seropositive horses was 107 (6.29%). The most represented serovarieties of the Leptospira species were: Leptospira grippotyphosa 42 (2.47%), Leptospira icterohaemorrhagiae 19 (1.12%), Leptospira pomona 16 (0.99%), Leptospira canicola 16 (0.94%), Leptospira bataviae 11 (0.65%), and Leptospira australis 2 (0.1%). Antibodies against Leptospira sejroe were not established in a single sample of the examined horse blood serums. The titer of specific antibodies ranged from 1:100 to 1:10000. The biggest number of serums had an antibody titer of 1:300, then 1:100, and 1:1000. The smallest number of serums had an antibody titer of 1:10000. Horses seropositive to leptospirosis were established only in sporadic cases, so that no major epizooties were established in the territory of Belgrade.
