However, several febrile diseases match many of the signs of the disease and only recently has distinguishing between canine hepatitisherpes virus, parainfluenzaand leptospirosis been possible. Detection of canine distemper virus nucleoprotein RNA by reverse transcription-PCR using serum, whole blood, and cerebrospinal fluid from dogs with distemper.

Canine distemper sometimes termed hardpad disease is a viral disease that affects a wide variety of animal families, including domestic and wild species of dogs, coyotes, foxes, pandas, wolves, ferrets, skunks, raccoons, and large cats, as well as pinnipeds, some primates, and a variety of other species.

These dogs are not protected against the virus, so are susceptible to canine distemper infection, continuing the downward spiral that leads to outbreaks throughout the world.

The virus initially replicates in the lymphatic tissue of the respiratory tract.

CDV strain of canine distemper virus. The virus contributed to the near-extinction of the black-footed ferret. Infectious Diseases of the Dog and Cat 3rd ed. Dunkin confirmed that the disease was, in fact, caused by a virus.


Distemper Canino

Vet J The results showed that N gene sequences belong to seven Canine Distemper Virus genovariants that had never been reported before in the State of Mexico.

Molecular analysis of the nucleocapsid protein of recent isolates of canine distemper virus in Japan. This page was last edited on 26 December pedros, at Comparing this consensus sequence with the Onderstepoort strain, only one change Asparagine to an Aspartic Acid was observed Ditsemper acid in the coding sequence of vaccine strain Onderstepoort AF figure 1. The multiple sequence alignment, molecular and phylogenetic analysis were realized using the MEGA 4.

Canine distemper

The robustness of the tree was computed by the bootstrap method using replicates. The animal may also show signs of sensitivity to light, incoordination, circling, increased sensitivity to sensory stimuli such as pain or touch, and deterioration of motor capabilities.

Dogs that have been infected with distemper tend to suffer a progressive deterioration of mental abilities and motor skills. Currently, there are few studies focusing on the correlation of mutations in the N gene with changes in antigenicity and pathogenicity. Nucleotide sequence analysis of nucleocapsid protein gene of canine distemper virus isolates in Thailand. Other sequences reported worldwide were used too figure 2.

Canine Distemper, see “Archived copy”. As the condition progresses, the seizures worsen and advance to grand mal convulsions followed by death of the animal.

A thickening of the footpads sometimes develops, and vesicular pustular lesions dustemper the abdomen usually develop. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Multiple alignments of 74 amino acids of vaccine strain Onderstepoort AF and 11 pathogenic strains reported in GenBank.


Canine distemper – Wikipedia

Wikipedia articles needing page number citations from July CS1 maint: The sequences of these genovariants, along with the sequences diste,per other isolates reported worldwide were analyzed in a phylogenetic tree.

Vet Microbiol 44, Canine distemper virus affects nearly all body systems. The most prevalent nonlife-threatening symptom is hard pad disease. As with measles, the treatment is symptomatic and supportive. A dog dn survives distemper continues to have both nonlife-threatening and life-threatening signs throughout its lifespan.

Animals in the family Felidaeincluding many species of large cat as well as domestic cats, were long believed to be resistant to canine distemper, until some researchers reported the prevalence of CDV infection in large felids. Seven genovariants were identified out of the 15 sequences obtained in this study, these were named Edomex-1 to Edomex-7 table 1. Neurological signs typically are found in the animals with thickened footpads from the virus.

It also may have played a considerable role in the extinction of the thylacine Tasmanian tiger and recurrently causes mortality among African wild dogs.

This is a result of the virus killing the cells responsible for manufacturing the tooth enamel. Another lasting symptom that is common is enamel hypoplasia.
