Trichomonosis in dromedary bulls
During a routine health check of 12 breeding dromedary bulls using microscopy two of them were found to harbour trichomonad flagellates in their preputial washings. A PCR conducted on one of the samples did confirm trichomonads but not Tritrichomona foetus. DNA sequencing identified the organism as Tetratrichomonas species. After repeated careful washings of the prepuce w oxidised water resampling revealed negative results.
