The diseases of Pinnipeds

Postby kotoreru » Mon Apr 16, 2007 4:05 pm

I wonder if I may be so fortunate enough to be in the company of someone who knows anything about pinniped diseases?

I know a little about Phocine Distemper Virus, and its close relative the Canine Distemper Virus, but other than that I really have no clue about other diseases that affect pinnipeds.

Anyone?

You'll get a few possible information sources with a Google search of pinniped pathology.

Also possibly pinniped necropsy.

Pinniped diseases doesn't pull up a lot of specific stuff, though.

Hmm yes, a Google search in this case is vaguely useless, "pinniped necropsy" being doubly so - but thanks for your suggestions.

I think the key to this is to consider parasites as diseases...that should yield some answers. This is where one wishes there was a book called "Infections and Diseases of Pinnipedia"...
