Faecal materials from 132 diarrhoeic and 19 healthy household dogs were cultured for Campylobacter jejuni/coli and other enteric organisms. Twenty-four (18.2% C. jejuni/coli were isolated from diarrhoeic dogs and 3 15.8% from healthy dogs. Non-cholera Vibrio 14.6% and Salmonella spp. (1.5%) were also detected from diarrhoeic dogs but none from the healthy group. Shigella and V. cholerae-01 were not recovered from the two groups of animal. Three chickens and six swines with history of diarrhoea were also cultured for C. jejuni/coli but the number of the two animals studies was too small to draw any conclusion.
