Abstract:

The present work aimed to investigate the possibility of DHV-1 transmission from infected ducklings to goslings and to spot the light on gosling susceptibility to such virus infection where they may play a neglected role in the disease outbreaks. The work included experimental infection of a group of one-week old duckling with the virulent Duck Hepatitis Virus – 1 (DHV-1) that was housed in contact with one-week old gosling group. It was found that 2 out of 10 in contact goslings exhibited clinical signs of DHV-1 infection by the 5th day post housing with infected ducklings showing dullness and weakness then recovered within one week. Survived goslings exhibited detectable serum neutralizing antibody titers by the 1st week post infection. These findings indicate that gosling can attract DHV-1 infection from infected ducklings.
