A Case of Chronic Aspergillus Rhinitis in a Captive Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis)
Charles De Gannes, Camil Stoian, Kellee Chung

A ten-year-old, intact, male ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) housed at the Emperor Valley Zoo experienced intermittent episodes of coughing, open-mouth breathing, sneezing, rattles and intermittent, bilateral, mucopurulent and bloody nasal discharge for three years. He was diagnosed with chronic fungal rhinitis secondary to sinusitis associated with bilateral apical nasal fistulas and a nasal epithelial tumour.
