Title: A Study of the Control of Virus Enteritis of Mink
Author: Pridham, Thomas Jasper
Abstract: In the following study consideration was given to certain aspects of a disease called virus enteritis of mink. This work was undertaken in an attempt to establish efficient control methods for this disease. Approximately one million mink are produced in Canada annually and virus enteritis has been an economically important disease in Canada for more than ten years. It was thought, therefore, that a further study should be made of infectious feline enteritis vaccine as a preventative for virus enteritis. It was also thought that an attempt should be made to develop another and possibly more efficient vaccine, and that a serological test should be developed as an aid in the evaluation of the above vaccines. This work was undertaken in an attempt to develop more efficient means of controlling virus enteritis.
