Ms Buckley made this Freedom of Information request to UK Health Security 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 successful.

Dear UK Health Security Agency,

I am interested in finding out more about the following conference abstract presented by your team this year: https://veterinariaitaliana.izs.it/index...

Please can I:
1. Have a copy of the poster as presented at the conference?
I also have the following questions:
1. Did any of the dogs in the index household either:
i. Originate from overseas?
ii. Born from parents that originated from overseas?

2. How many of these 36 dogs were infected with Brucella canis?
3. In how many of the Brucella canis positive dogs was infection NOT linked to either horizontal transmission through reproductive means or vertical transmission through transmission from dam to puppies either in utero or post whelping? i.e. how many are thought to have caught Brucella canis through non-reproductive means?
4. Of these, how many were entire and how many had a neutered status at the time of testing?
5. How many dogs at the time of this request (August 6th 2023) have now been linked to this index household? Of these, how many have tested Brucella canis positive and how many have tested Brucella canis negative?

Yours faithfully,

Ms Buckley
