Infections with E. coli
Diarrhoea caused by haemolytic E. coli affects individual animals as well as dogs and cats of all ages in kennels and animal shelters. There is an acute and a chronic-recurrent form of haemorrhagic gastroenteritis. Differential diagnoses are food hypersensitivities, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, parasitic diarrhoea, dysbacteria and tumors. Vaccination causes increased production of secretory antibodies (IgA) in the gut. Thus, anchorage of bacteria and absorption of antigens (toxins) is inhibited.
nfections with Staphylococci
Staphylococcal pyoderma is the main field of application of autogenous vaccines in dogs. Relapse after antibiotic therapy is typical. Booster vaccination after six to twelve months is recommended. It is important to rule out an underlying cause such as an allergy, an endocrine disease or other immunosuppressive conditions.
Autogenous vaccines can be applied in chronic-recurrent infections of ears, nose and throat, e.g. otitis of dogs or chronic rhinitis of cats, which are resistant to therapy with antibiotics. Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pasteurella multocida or different Enterobacteriaceae can be found. Other indications are anal sacculitis, infections of the prepuce and stillbirth.
Viral papillomatosis can be treated with autogenous vaccines. A diagnostic analysis by patho-histological examination is recommended.
Direct transmission of Microsporum canis to humans from dogs and cats does occur. Vaccination is recommended as an accompanying measure to standard therapy.
