Abstract

The clinical, cultural, and serological characteristics of melioidosis in three military dogs are reported. Fever, myalgia, dermal abscesses, and epididymitis were the most significant clinical signs. Diagnosis was confirmed by cultural findings in two and by a significant rise in hemagglutination titer in all three dogs. was isolated from venous blood, dermal abscesses, and an epididymal biopsy. All isolates were similar in sensitivity to antibacterial drugs.

Two of the dogs survived after prolonged courses of treatment. Tetracycline administered at high dosage levels appeared to be the treatment of choice.
