Ocular CHV-1 shedding was not detected by PCR and CHV-1 VN titers remained stable in all dogs. Ocular CHV-1 shedding was not detected by PCR and CHV-1 VN titers remained stable in all dogs. Canine herpesvirus (CHV) is a virus of the family Herpesviridae which most importantly causes a fatal hemorrhagic disease in puppies (and in wild Canidae) less than two to three weeks old. All dogs developed CHV-1 SN titers, beginning on day 7 PI, peaking on day 21 PI, and declining over the subsequent weeks. 4.8%, P ≤ 0.05). Preventive management with vaccination of reproducing bitches in kennels with reproductive disorders should therefore be advised.
Samples from dogs collected in summer and fall displayed moderate to high antibody titers indicating recent infection with CHV1. Ocular CHV-1 shedding was not detected by PCR and CHV-1 VN titers remained stable in all dogs. 4.8%, P ≤ 0.05). Administration of an immunosuppressive dosage of systemic prednisolone to adult dogs latently infected with CHV-1 may result in viral reactivation and ocular disease recrudescence. None of the vaginal swabs tested positive for CaHV-1 DNA. These results indicate that exposure to CHV-1 may be much more common than previously suggested.
The dog was treated with cidofovir 0.5% OU q12h for a period of 4 weeks, with resolution of corneal disease noted within 1 week of treatment. ______, or progeny thereof, or a killed virus corresponding to CHV-1 isolate ______; and ii) a physiologically compatible carrier. We also tested 79 individual sera taken from dogs at various other places in The Netherlands and found that 27 (34.2%) were positive. Also, the influence of kennel cough on the antibody titer was correlated to the hygienic status of the kennel. No other viral pathogens or significant bacterial pathogens were found. This study was conducted to assess the prevalence of canine herpesvirus-1 (CaHV-1) infection of the vestibular labyrinth (VL) and vestibular ganglion (VG) of dogs by PCR.
Equid herpesvirus 1 (EHV 1) is a Varicellovirus that can induce both abortion and neurological disorders in horses . The association between reproductive disorders and seroprevalence was analysed in chi-square analyses using contingency tables. There were several factors predisposing animals to CaHV-1 infection, such as age, number of pregnancies, experience with mating and dog shows, cases of abortion, management, and environmental hygiene. The dogs originated from all parts of The Netherlands and represented many different breeds. All CaHV-1 positive sera and 100 CaHV-1 negative sera were also tested using an in-house immunofluorescence (IF) test. The gI ORF codes for a 259 a.a.
Although FHV TK and CHV TK have a level of identity of 31 and 35%, respectively, with HSV-1 TK, and a general amino acid similarity of ≈54% with HSV-1 TK, they do not recognize the same broad range of substrates as HSV-1 TK does. Two subtypes of them were expressed in Escherichia coli, and IFN proteins were purified. All foxes became infected and shed CHV in saliva and genital secretions for up to 14 days post-inoculation (p.i.) as evaluated by PCR and/or by virus isolation. It is one of the leading causes of death in newborn puppies (and wild Canidae) less than two to three weeks old. Canine distemper virus (CDV) has been associated with outbreaks of canine infectious respiratory disease in shelters and boarding kennel environments. Shelters #2 and #3 had satisfactory sanitary and nutritional conditions, outdoors exercise areas (#2) and animal clustering by groups (#3).
The neuropathological manifestations of canine distemper virus (CDV) are diverse; however, acute to chronic demyelinating encephalomyelitis are the most prevalent forms under natural conditions [19,21]. Theriogenology. The nucleotide sequence of the immediate early (IE) gene of canine herpesvirus was determined. The DNA and polypeptide patterns of feline herpesvirus-1 (FHV-1), a virus usually associated with feline respiratory infections, were compared to those of five herpesvirus isolates from dogs. Full text Full text is available as a scanned copy of the original print version. Canine herpesvirus (CHV1) is found in dogs all over the world and may spread by oronasal or sexual contact.
I was concerned about Dana. Description: The Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine publishes original research findings, clinical observations, and case reports in the field of veterinary medicine dealing with captive and free-ranging wild animals.
