Abstract:

CPV-2 causes hemorrhagic gastroenteritis in dogs and spreads rapidly in both domestic as well as wild population of canines. The virus sheds in large numbers in the feces, so the present study was designed to detect CPV and to identify the prevailing antigenic types of CPV using molecular techniques from rectal swabs of affected dogs. The incidence of CPV was found to be 18% and 63% by PCR and NPCR respectively. The most prevailing antigenic type as detected by Real time PCR was found to be CPV-2a. Further the study also indicated the animals vaccinated for CPV were also found positive for the disease.
