This study as carried out to assess the prevalence of salmonella spp. in household dogs in Veneto region and to investigate the risk factors associated. The salmonellae isolated within this study were further characterized. Out of a total of 200 symptomatic dogs sampled we found 4 positive dogs for salmonella spp. In particular sarovars identified were: S. Typhimurium fagotipe U302, S. Hadar, S. Veneziana adn S. Zaiman. It is important to uderline that S. Typhimurium and S. Hadar are two out of the five serovars identified as relevant for public health by european commission because of the small number of positive camples it was not possible to assess their association ith the risk factors by a statistical point of vie. However type of die, sampling period (summer or winter) and immunologic status have been identified as important factor associated to positive results. The low prevalence and the consideration on potential risk factors confirm the results reported in other similar studies (Bagcegel A. F. Et Al., 2007; Corradini (Et. Al., 1979). Even if posaitive healty dogs could represent a potential source of salmonellae for humans further studies should be performed to claify the role of the dogs as source of dissemination and infection.
