The prevalence of bhanja virus affected dogs in some regions of croatia and slovenia yugoslavia

The sera of 89 dogs from 3 ecologically different parts of Yugoslavia were examined by the haemagglutination inhibition test for Bhanja virus. The study aim was to gain an insight into the level of dogs affected by this arbovirus. The sera were tested of 59 dogs of the German shepherd breed from 27 localities along the country borders with Hungary and Italy in which the presence of Haemaphysalis puncata tick (main vector for Bhanja virus) was demonstrated. Thirty sera from dogs of different breeds from the City of Zagreb area were also examined. The presence of Bhanja virus HI antibodies was demonstrated in 3 (6.25%) of the 46 canine sera from the areas along the border with Hungary. The presence of Bhanja HI antibodies was not demonstrated either in the sera of dogs residing close to the Italian border or of those from the City of Zagreb area.
