Abstract:

Sera of 170 dogs in Cairo were tested for leptospiral antibodies by the microscopic agglutimation test. Forty-one sera had detectable leptospiral agglutinins, most reacted against Leptospira serotype canicola. Subacute interstitial nephritic lesions were present in renal tissue from 27 seropositive and two seronegative dogs. Leptospira serotype canicola was isolated in cultures from urine of two dogs.
