Detection of Canine Parvovirus by PCR and its association with some of risk factors
Rev MVZ Córdoba 2018; 23(2)  : 6607-6616


Objective. Canine parvovirus is one of the most important diseases of dogs all over the world that threaten their health. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of canine parvovirus in dogs referred to the Small Animal Clinic of Tehran University in Tehran province by genomic method of detection.

Materials and methods. Diarrheal stool samples were obtained from 60 dogs during the years 2014-2016 and the presence of CPV was investigated by PCR method.

Results. Prevalence of canine parvovirus infection in the studied dogs was 8.33% (5 0f 60). No significant differences between different age groups and breeds were found. However, infection was significantly higher in dogs with hemorrhagic diarrhea (3 of 25), but it was not statistically significant using chi-square test (p > 0.05).

Conclusions. This study showed that hemorrhagic diarrhea and lack of vaccination may be considered as important symptoms and risk factors for canine parvoviral infection in dogs and Dog owners in Iran should be aware of the fact that vaccination against CPV infection must be done carefully and on schedule to control and prevent the virus.

Palabras clave: Diarrhea, genomic detection, parvoviral infection, risk factor.
