Detection of Enterobacteriaceae, antimicrobial susceptibility, and virulence genes of Escherichia coli in canaries (Serinus canaria) in northeastern Brazil

Abstract: This study aimed to verify the presence of members from the Enterobacteriaceae family and determine antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of the isolates in canaries bred in northeastern Brazil; in addition, the presence of diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) and avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) was also verified in these birds. Samples were collected during an exhibition organized by the Brazilian Ornithological Federation in July 2015 in Fortaleza, Brazil. A total of 88 fecal samples were collected … Show more

“…P. agglomerans has been identified as a possible cause of disease in vertebrate animals, but compared to humans, there are only a few reports of infections in this group (Dutkiewicz et al 2016). Commonly found in nature, especially in plants, water, soil, and animals (Delétoile et al 2009), this bacterium has also been isolated in clinically healthy poultry, being the most isolated in that study, with 25% positivity (Beleza et al 2019).…”

“…In addition, it also occurs in vertebrates and invertebrates, but its clinical importance in animals is almost unknown (Dutkiewicz et al 2016). Despite limited information about its occurrence in birds, P. agglomerans have been reported in healthy captive passerines, Psittaciformes, and other freeliving bird orders (Lopes et al 2015Beleza et al 2019, Carreira 2019. Gerlach et al (1994) clarified that it is likely that the isolation of this microorganism in poultry feces can be related to the consumption of seeds containing this bacterium.…”

“…Despite the isolation of fourteen different species of bacteria, birds were not necessarily suffering from any pathological condition. In addition to the low frequency of isolation, some of these microorganisms may occur naturally in these birds, considering that these strains have been isolated previously from healthy birds either in the wild or in cages [40,41,42,43,44,45,30]. Species of the Enterobacteriaceae family, Escherichia coli in particular, do not belong to the intestinal microbiota of granivorous pet birds, because feed composed exclusively of seeds has been shown to provoke an inhibitory effect of this bacterial species [46].…”
