Abstract:
A case control study was conducted at small animal medicine unit of Teaching Veterinary clinical complex, Rajiv Gandhi college of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Puducherry for the period of 3 months. Total of nine dogs exhibiting signs of vomiting and diarrhoea that were brought to the hospital were utilized for the study. Nine age-matched dogs brought to the clinic for vaccination / routine checkup that were apparently normal were taken as a control group. The disease was predominantly noticed in dogs between 0 to 6 months old. The hematological study that was conducted showed a reduction in number of thrombocytes of disease group (1.34±0.152) when compared to a control group (5.26±2.21) due to thrombocytopenia which is a good indicator for prognosis. There was a reduction in total protein and albumin in the disease group (4.74±0.68 and 2.86±1.67) compared to the control group (6.52±0.74 and 3.96±0.48) due to exudative type or permeability diarrhoea. Nine suspected samples were positive using H primer pair generated PCR product of 630 bp. In this study PCR assay was found to be sensitive, specific and rapid technique for detecting CPV infection. The primer pair Hfor/Hrev (Buonavoglia et al., 2001) amplified 630bp product of VP2 gene. The higher sensitivity of PCR assay could be due to its ability to detect low level of virus (103 PFU / g of faeces).
