Abstract

We investigated exposure to Brucella canis and Leptospira spp. in sera from 56 canids sampled between 2008 and 2012 in Tierra del Fuego, Chile. No seropositives to B. canis were found. We detected antibodies against Leptospira spp. in Fuegian culpeo fox (Pseudalopex culpaeus lycoides; 20%), chilla foxes (Pseudalopex griseus; 8%), and dogs (Canis lupus familiaris; 3%).
