Feral Swine Diseases: Petri Dishes Spreading at 70 MPH
Craig Hicks, A.S., B.S., CWB
DescriptionFeral swine have the ability to carry up to 30 different diseases and 37 parasites that can affect people, pets, livestock, and wildlife. From April 2009 through September 2015, the Ohio program of USDA Wildlife Services collected varying biological samples from 138 feral swine throughout the Buckeye State. Surprisingly, the vast majority of these samples were negative for the host of diseases we typically associate with feral swine. This session will discuss why the greatest threat for disease incursion is not from established feral swine populations, but from those being illegally translocated from southern states.

167B
β-Lactam-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae in Hospitals
Dixie Mollenkopf, M.S.
DescriptionThe dissemination of Enterobacteriaceae expressing resistance to extended-spectrum cephalosporins, which are used in both veterinary and human medicine, is of critical concern. In healthcare facilities, the movement of patients, personnel, and equipment provides an opportunity for Enterobacteriaceae carrying β-lactamase genes to enter and disseminate in the environment. Environmental samples collected from veterinary and human hospitals indicate that AmpC- and ESβL-producing Enterobacteriaceae can contaminate surfaces in both animal and human medical settings, with higher prevalence in veterinary hospitals. The recovery of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae from human hospital environments is concerning and warrants further investigation.
