Brucella canis

Ms Buckley made this Freedom of Information request to Animal and Plant Health Agency Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was refused by Animal and Plant Health Agency.

Dear Animal and Plant Health Agency,
I am interested in finding out more about the following conference
abstract co-authored this year:
https://veterinariaitaliana.izs.it/index...
I am in receipt now of the poster published at the conference.
Please can you advise me whether:
1. whether any overseas dog connection had been established with the dogs in this household that showed clinical signs (abortions) prior the 3 overseas dogs in this house entering this house? If so, what was the nature of the connection?
2. Whether the dog referred to in this blog https://aphascience.blog.gov.uk/2021/11/... one of the overseas dogs in this household? If so, please can I know what test(s) were carried out on this dog and what the result was?
3. Do you know long the overseas dogs had been in this household at the point of the positive result? If so, how long?
4. Do you have any evidence that the overseas dogs in this household were infected prior to entering that household? If so, what?
5. What breeds of dog were involved in this epidemiological case?
6. Have you continued to monitor the puppies that were sold across the UK from this house from sero-positive parents? If so, how many have subsequently tested positive for Brucella canis?

To save un-necessary duplication I advise you that I have already made a request of the UKHSA in respect of this, and my questions are following up on aspects that they could not answer. The original request/their reply can be found here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...
Yours faithfully,
