      Great talk thank you. When I first heard about the chicken being the likely source well over a year ago now at a conference in Sydney the comment was made it may have been a cluster with a local source as most cases were in Victoria. Listening to this though it would seem that there should be a similar representation of the condition in other states as many people feed raw chicken to their dogs with vets often recommending raw chicken necks and wings to improve oral care of the teeth (cats too). With many tick cases in Queensland and NSW is it likely that some are being misdiagnosed and are actually polyradiculoneuritis which may explain why we are not diagnosing as many cases here? Does the profession now advise against feeding raw chicken to any dog and what about cats? I know some vets who have fed frozen chicken (not letting it thaw at all) and wondered would this kill the camphylobacter.
