Canine distemper infection associated with acute nervous signs in dogs


, : Canine distemper infection associated with acute nervous signs in dogs. Veterinary Record 130(14): 291-293

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.

The urine of 87 dogs with clinical signs suggestive of canine distemper were analysed by RT-PCR for detection of canine distemper virus (CDV) nucleoprotein gene. The samples were allotted to the following groups: group A - with 41 dogs with system...

In a prospective study we evaluated the use of the reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in urine samples to diagnose canine distemper virus in dogs with progressive neurological disease. A fragment of the nucleoprotein gene of...
