Pasteurella multocida serotype 1 isolated from a lesser snow goose; 1997; Article; Journal; Journal of Wildlife Diseases; Samuel, M. D.; Goldberg, D. R.; Shadduck, D. J.; Price, J. I.; Cooch, E. G.

Summary

Pharyngeal swabs were collected from 298 lesser snow geese (Chen caerulescens caerulescens) at Banks Island (Northwest Territories. Canada) in the summer of 1994. Pasteurella multocida serotype 1 was isolated from an adult male bird and P. multocida serotype 3 was isolated from an adult female goose. Pathogenicity of the serotype 1 isolate was confirmed by inoculation in Pekin ducks (Anas platyrhynchos). The serotype 3 isolate was non-pathogenic in Pekin ducks. This is the first documented isolation of pathogenic P. multocida serotype 1 from apparently healthy wild snow geese.
