Epidemiological investigations on coronavirus infections in dogs and cats in an animal shelter



Epidemiological investigations on coronavirus infections in dogs and cats in an animal shelter



Wiener Tierarztliche Monatsschrift 92(1): 21-27



In a large Austrian animal shelter, faecal samples of 87 cats and 22 dogs were investigated for coronavirus-specific nucleic acids using PCR. The positive samples were further analysed in the S and M gene regions. The dogs were preselected for diarrhoea, whereas the cat samples were collected randomly. 52.9% of the cats and 77.3% of the dogs had faecal samples positive for coronavirus. PCRs differentiating in the S gene showed a clear predominance of FCoV type I in cat samples.
