Abstract : On the basis of examinations of dogs for salmonellosis, during three years in Prague and its environs, in vivo (from faeces) as well as post mortem (from organs) it was found that, during 1957-1959, 0.95% of the findings from faeces, and 2.83% from organs, were positive. These numbers are lower than those given by a majority of foreign authors. The most frequent agents of salmonellosis in dogs are the typical zooanthropo-pathogenic types, such as salmonella typhi murium and salmonella enteritidis. With regard to these findings, and with regard to certain signs of humanization of some of formerly zoopathogenic types reported recently, as well as with regard to the still growing number of dogs, the author calls attention to the possibility of transmission of salmonellosis from dog to man, as well as a source of infection in proved toxic infections of men with salmonellae.
