Assessment of acute kidney injury in canine parvovirus infection: Comparison of kidney injury biomarkers with routine renal functional parameters

Abstract Dogs with naturally occurring canine parvovirus (CPV) infection are at risk of developing acute kidney injury (AKI) due to several factors, including severe dehydration, hypotension and sepsis. Serum creatinine (sCr) and serum urea are insensitive markers for the assessment of early kidney injury. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate potential kidney […]

Increased survival in puppies affected by Canine Parvovirus type II using an immunomodulator as a therapeutic aid

Canine parvovirus type II (CPV-2) infection induces canine parvoviral enteritis (CPE), which in turn promotes sepsis and systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Mortality in this disease is usually registered within 48–72 h post-hospitalization, the critical period of the illness. It has been recently described that the use of an immunomodulator, whose major component is monomeric ubiquitin […]

Parvoviral enteritis and salmonellosis in raccoons with sudden death

Abstract Eight of 9 juvenile raccoons at a rehabilitation center died without obvious prior clinical signs. Gross changes were unremarkable except for mildly distended intestines. Microscopically, crypt loss, distension, necrosis, and regeneration with intranuclear viral inclusions were observed in the small intestine, with marked lymphoid depletion and necrosis in Peyer patches and mesenteric lymph nodes. […]

Canine immunoglobulin F(ab’)2 fragments protect cats against feline parvovirus virus infection

Abstract Feline parvovirus virus (FPV) causes severe diarrhea and leukopenia in felines, and threatening the health of wild and domestic felines. Currently, specific drugs to treat FPV have not yet been developed. In this study, IgG was extracted from inactivated FPV-immunized dog sera. Canine F(ab’)2 fragments were obtained from pepsin-digested IgG and then purified by protein-G […]

The global spread and replacement of canine parvovirus strains

Canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV-2) became widespread during 1978 and was reported in many countries during 1978 and 1979. Earlier studies showed that CPV-2 was replaced in the U.S.A. around 1980 by an antigenically and genetically variant virus (CPV-2a). Here we show that CPV-2 was present in the U.S.A., Japan, Belgium and Australia prior to […]

Dual infection with an emergent strain of canine distemper virus and canine parvovirus in an Arctic wolf under managed care

A 6-wk-old managed male Arctic wolf with lethargy, drooling, dehydration, elevated temperature, and acute onset of seizures was submitted for autopsy. The wolf had been vaccinated with a multivalent vaccine exactly 2 wk prior to presentation. Grossly, long bones were brittle and easily fractured under pressure; the intestinal contents were mucoid and yellow. Histologically, there […]

Antigenic relationships between canine parvovirus type 2, feline panleukopenia virus and mink enteritis virus using conventional antisera and monoclonal antibodies

The antigenic relationships between three similar parvoviruses, canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV), feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) and mink enteritis virus (MEV) were investigated. Antisera against all 3 viruses and monoclonal antibodies (mAb) to CPV were prepared and the viruses compared using several serological methods. When conventional sera were used in the hemagglutination-inhibition and agar gel […]

Canine morbillivirus (CDV): a review on current status, emergence and the diagnostics

dog's face

The increasing host range of canine morbillivirus (CDV) affecting important wildlife species such as Lions, Leopard, and Red Pandas has raised the concern. Canine distemper is a pathogen of dogs affecting the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems. Seventeen lineages of CDV are reported, and the eighteenth lineage was proposed in 2019 from India. Marked genomic […]
