contact rates between wild and domestic canids: no evidence of parvovirus or canine distemper virus in crab-eating foxes.evaluating the risk of disease spill-over from domestic dogs to wildlife depends on knowledge of inter-specific contact rates and/or exposure to aetiological agents in dog environments. here, contact rates of crab-eating foxes (cerdocyon thous) with sympatric domestic dog populations were measured over 25months in amazon brazil. foxes and dogs were serologically and clinically monitored for exposure to canine parvovirus (cpv-2) and canine distemper virus (cdv), pathogens known to have caused wil ...200111356314
serosurvey of small carnivores in the bolivian chaco.five species of bolivian carnivores, including nine geoffroy's cats (oncifelis geoffroyi), ten ocelots (leopardus pardalis), one jaguarundi (herpailurus yaguarondi), nine pampas foxes (pseudalopex gymnocercus), and five crab-eating foxes (cerdocyon thous) were sampled between march 2001 and april 2005 and tested for antibodies to common pathogens of domestic carnivores. carnivores were trapped in three areas: a village, the region between human settlements and a protected area, and within kaa-iy ...200717699100
canine distemper virus in a crab-eating fox (cerdocyon thous) in brazil: case report and phylogenetic analyses.although canine distemper is enzootic worldwide and has a wide host range, there are no reports of canine distemper virus in crab-eating foxes (cerdocyon thous) that provide information on virus phylogeny and histopathologic lesions. the objective of this study is report and describe canine distemper in a crab-eating fox (c. thous), with a focus on the phylogeny of the virus strain and the histopathologic lesions in the animal.200919395766
canine distemper infection in crab-eating fox (cerdocyon thous) from argentina.canine distemper virus (cdv) has been reported worldwide in wild carnivores and has been cited as the cause of population declines in some species. crab-eating foxes (cerdocyon thous) from el palmar national park, argentina, were observed either dead or exhibiting clinical neurologic signs. samples were taken from two individuals that were laterfound tobe positive for cdv by direct immunofluorescence in brain tissue. based on molecular studies, the cdv strain had a high percentage of identity co ...200919901389
exposure of free-ranging wild carnivores and domestic dogs to canine distemper virus and parvovirus in the cerrado of central brazil.human population growth around protected areas increases the contact between wild and domestic animals, promoting disease transmission between them. this study investigates the exposure of free-ranging wild carnivores and domestic dogs to canine distemper virus (cdv) and parvovirus in emas national park (enp) in the cerrado savanna of central brazil. serum samples were collected from 169 wild carnivores, including the maned wolf (chrysocyon brachyurus), crab-eating fox (cerdocyon thous), hoary f ...201627469023
