Abstract:
A survey was conducted on parvoviral infection in dogs in and around Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India for a period of two years from January 2018 to December 2019. Fifty bloody diarrheic faecal samples were collected from young pups suspected for canine parvovirus infection subjected to Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) assay for confirmation using stool DNA kit. The prevalence of canine parvoviral enteritis in the study area was 96 per cent. The prevalence of canine parvoviral enteritis was found to be higher in vaccinated exotic breed puppies (90 per cent) than vaccinated native breeds (40 per cent). The age wise prevalence of canine parvoviral enteritis showed no difference in both age groups of below two months (61.29 per cent in vaccinated puppies and 39.70 per cent in unvaccinated puppies) and above two months (57 per cent in vaccinated puppies and 42.10 per cent in non vaccinated puppies). No significant difference was noticed in both sexes in vaccinated and unvaccinated puppies. Though PCR results revealed no significance difference, vaccinated puppies showed higher incidence (60.41 per cent) than unvaccinated puppies. With regard to recovery rate, vaccinated puppies recorded higher percentages than unvaccinated puppies.
