Abstract: Mongolian gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus) were exposed to Mycobacterium paratuberculosis by intraperitoneal and oral routes. Fourteen weeks after exposure, the gerbils were necropsied and tissues were cultured and examined microscopically. Results of the study showed that gerbils can be infected with M paratuberculosis but are not suitable for studies of paratuberculosis.
