Some zoonotic problems in the Canadian Arctic.


Zoonoses are matters of concern and interest in the Canadian Arctic since living conditions in this region narrow the proximity of contact between human beings and animals. Some clearcut examples are already well known - hydatid disease, trichinosis, and brucellosis. Others such as psittacosis and tularemia may be important zoonoses. Diseases such as rabies are potential hazards, and no doubt other Arctic zoonotic diseases have yet to be recognized.
