  Bordetella - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bordetella is a genus of small (0.2 - 0.7 µm) coccobacilli of the phylum proteobacteria.
Bordetella species are strict aerobes as well as highly fastidious.
A strain of Bordetella is also responsible for Kennel cough in dogs.

 HealthGene - Bordetella bronchiseptica
Bordetella bronchiseptica is an aerobic, gram-negative coccobacillus that is a well-known respiratory pathogen in dogs, swine and rodents.
The majority of Bordetella bronchiseptica isolations were originally associated with cases of bronchopneumonia in laboratory-kept cats, often housed under overcrowded conditions, whose virologic status was unclear.
In experimental studies in cats in which Bordetella bronchiseptica is known to be the sole pathogen, the main clinical signs are pyrexia, sneezing, nasal discharge, submandibular lymphadenomegaly, and rales on auscultation.

 Medmicro Chapter 31
Bordetella pertussis causes whooping cough (pertussis), an acute respiratory infection marked by severe, spasmodic coughing episodes during the paroxysmal phase.
Bordetella pertussis is a small (approximately 0.8 µm by 0.4 µm), rod-shaped, coccoid, or ovoid Gram-negative bacterium that is encapsulated and does not produce spores.
Bordetella pertussis organisms grown under such conditions are avirulent and are characterized by the loss of the capacity to synthesize the numerous toxic factors and other structural components.

 HealthGene - Bordetella avium
Bordetella avium is a small, gram-negative, non-fermentative, motile, strictly aerobic bacillus responsible for the avian disease referred to as bordetellosis.
Although it is an economically significant disease in turkeys, Bordetella avium has also been isolated from cockatiels, Wagler’s conures, a Jenday conure, a Muluccan cockatoo and a noble’s macaw.
In cockatiels, Bordetella avium commences a path of infection by colonizing the ciliated epithelium of the bird’s tracheal mucosa.

 Isolation and characterization of Bordetella bronchiseptica from cats
Bordetella bronchiseptica was isolated in 19/614 (3.1%) cats by oropharyngeal swab and in 6/614 cats by bronchial lavage.

It is concluded that Bordetella bronchiseptica is present in the cat population in southern Louisiana, the organism can be isolated from asymptomatic cats, some of these isolates can produce disease in specific pathogen-free kittens, and that Bordetella bronchiseptica isolates from cats in a relatively small geographic area are genetically diverse.

 Whooping Cough
Bordetella pertussis, the agent of pertussis or whooping cough.
Whooping cough (pertussis) is caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis, B.
Furthermore, Bordetella LPS is more potent in the limulus assay than LPS from other Gram-negative bacteria, so it is not reliable to apply knowledge of the biological activity of LPS in the Enterobacteriaceae to the LPS of Bordetella.
