Canine distemper - conclusions from an outbreak in France

, : Canine distemper - conclusions from an outbreak in France. Praktische Tierarzt 72(10): 866,869-871

A report on a canine distemper outbreak in France from 1987 to 1989 is given. Geographical and temporal spread of the disease as well as age distribution, clinical forms and vaccination history in the dogs concerned suggest poor population immunity due to low number of dogs vaccinated against the disease. Other possible reasons like emergence of a mutant field strain, reversion to virulence of the vaccine virus or insufficient efficacy of vaccines are rejected.
