multiple-host pathogens in domestic hunting dogs in nicaragua's bosawás biosphere reserve.nicaragua's bosawás biosphere reserve is a vast forested area inhabited largely by indigenous mayangna and miskitu people. most bosawás residents rely on subsistence hunting and swidden agriculture, and hunting dogs are important for finding and securing wild game. we investigated the health of hunting dogs in three communities differing in location, size, and economy. dogs in all communities were nutritionally compromised and experienced a heavy burden of disease. seroprevalence of canine diste ...201728012903
canine distemper virus in wild felids of costa rica.several highly infectious diseases can be transmitted through feces and cause elevated mortality among carnivore species. one such infectious agent, canine distemper virus (cdv; paramyxoviridae: morbillivirus), has been reported to affect wild carnivores, among them several felid species. we screened free-ranging and captive wild carnivores in costa rica for cdv. between 2006 and 2012, we collected 306 fecal samples from 70 jaguars (panther onca), 71 ocelots ( leopardus pardalis ), five jaguarun ...201626967127
serosurvey for selected viral infections in free-ranging jaguars (panthera onca) and domestic carnivores in brazilian cerrado, pantanal, and amazon.we investigated the exposure of jaguar (panthera onca) populations and domestic carnivores to selected viral infections in the cerrado, amazon, and pantanal biomes of brazil. between february 2000 and january 2010, we collected serum samples from 31 jaguars, 174 dogs (canis lupus familiaris), and 35 domestic cats (felis catus). serologic analyses for antibodies to rabies virus, canine distemper virus (cdv), feline immunodeficiency virus (fiv), and for feline leukemia virus (felv) antigen were co ...201323778599
