Abstract

An epizootic infection of Citrobacter freundii in a guineapig colony is reported. From 1300 guineapigs maintained in a colony, a total of 115 guineapigs died. Lesions found postmortem were suggestive of acute pneumonia and enteritis. Citrobacter freundii was consistently isolated from necropsy specimens of lung, liver, spleen and intestines of the animals. The source of infection was not ascertained
