Occurrence of Campylobacter jejuni and Giardia species in muskrat (Ondatra zibethica)
Department or Administrative Unit
A total of 189 muskrat fecal samples were surveyed for Campylobacter and Giardia species. Campylobacter jejuni was recovered from 47.5% of these samples, and Giardia species were detected in 82.5%. These findings indicate that muskrat may be of importance to the health both of humans and of domestic animals.
