Canine distemper infection associated with acute nervous signs in dogs

Veterinary Record 130(14): 291-293

Canine distemper infection associated with acute nervous signs in dogs

Eight vaccinated dogs suddenly developed progressive ataxia, paresis or paralysis of short duration. A histopathological examination detected a non-suppurative meningoencephalitis suggestive of a viral infection, and immunohistochemical examination confirmed the presence of canine distemper virus antigen in 5 of the dogs.
