Experimental production of viremia in guineapigs against foot and mouth disease virus was studied. Post infection viremia was observed in post inoculated guineapigs only. Viremia appeared within 3DPI and persisted up to 5 DPI in post inoculated guineapigs, but control animals did not show any signs of viremia. Viremial level was also measured in post-inoculated guineapigs. The mean virus titres at 3, 4 and 5 DPI were log10 2.16, 3.39 and 3.44 respectively. It is concluded that guineapigs might be an excellent mode for studying the viremia against foot and mouth disease virus.
