serologic response of domestic ferrets (mustela putorius furo) to canine distemper and rabies virus vaccines.nine unrelated 12-week-old naive domestic ferrets (mustela putorius furo) were used to evaluate the serologic responses to commercial canine distemper virus (cdv) and rabies virus (rv) vaccines. five of the ferrets (group 1) were inoculated 3 times at 2-week intervals with a multivalent modified-live virus vaccine of canine cell-line origin, containing cdv and an inactivated rv vaccine. four of the ferrets (group 2) were inoculated once with the multivalent modified-live virus vaccine containing ...19892537273
glomerulonephritis in a ferret with feline coronavirus infection.a male domestic ferret (mustela putorius furo), which was purchased from outside of japan at 13 weeks of age, was euthanized at 18 months of age because of poor health. at autopsy, the liver, spleen, and mesenteric lymph node were enlarged, and white foci were observed on the outer surface of the liver. the outer surface of the mesenteric lymph node was dark red. histologically, granulomas were observed in the liver, spleen, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, composed mainly of aggregated epithelioid ...201526319601
the first case of feline infectious peritonitis-like pyogranuloma in a ferret infected by coronavirus in japan.a male ferret, which was purchased from abroad at 9 months of age, had shown significant weight loss starting at 13 months of age. the ferret subsequently showed decreasing motor activity and recumbency and was euthanized at 14 months of age. at necropsy, a white, quail egg-sized mass was found in the mesentery. histopathologically, multifocal granulomas consisting of necrotic foci, macrophages, fibroblasts and plentiful fibrous connective tissues were observed in the mesenteric mass. surroundin ...201022319227
an update on feline infectious peritonitis: diagnostics and therapeutics.this review is concerned with what has been learned about feline infectious peritonitis (fip) diagnostics and therapeutics since the publication of an extensive overview of literature covering the period 1963-2009. although progress has been made in both areas, obtaining a definitive diagnosis of fip remains a problem for those veterinarians and/or cat owners who require absolute certainty. this review will cover both indirect and direct diagnostic tests for the disease and will emphasize their ...201424857253
detection of novel ferret coronaviruses and evidence of recombination among ferret an epidemiological study of ferret coronaviruses (frcovs), novel frcov strains (saitama-1 and aichi-1) were detected by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (rt-pcr) and nucleotide sequence analysis of partial rna-dependent rna polymerase (rdrp) genes. phylogenetic analysis indicated that these strains belonged to different clusters from other frcov strains. next, the nucleotide sequence of the 3'-terminal region of saitama-1 (8271 bases) strain was determined and compared with tho ...201627369429
molecular characterization of a novel coronavirus associated with epizootic catarrhal enteritis (ece) in ferrets.a novel coronavirus, designated as ferret enteric coronavirus (fecv), was identified in feces of domestic ferrets clinically diagnosed with epizootic catarrhal enteritis (ece). initially, partial sequences of the polymerase, spike, membrane protein, and nucleocapsid genes were generated using coronavirus consensus pcr assays. subsequently, the complete sequences of the nucleocapsid gene and the last two open reading frames at the 3' terminus of the fecv genome were obtained. phylogenetic analyse ...200616499943
