DOMINGUES, L.M.; ALESSI, A.C.; SCHOKEN-ITURRINO, R.P.  and  DUTRA, L.S.. Oral flora associated with periodontal disease in dogs. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 1999, vol.51, n.4, pp.329-332. ISSN 1678-4162.

Anaerobic bacteria associated with spontaneous periodontal disorders were studied. The samples were directly colected from the subgingival space with a odontologic curet, and they were plated in Central for Disease Control culture medium for anaerobic bacteria and incubated in anaerobic conditions at 37°C for seven days. The characterization of the colonies were done by the morphologic study and biochemical tests (API 20A). Prevotella spp., Bacteroides spp., Propionibacterium spp., Actinomyces spp., Eubacterium spp., Porphyromonas spp. and Gemella spp. were identified in the samples.

Keywords : Dog; subgingival plaque; periodontal disease.
