Canine adenovirus type 2 disease

icanis

Synonym(s): CAV-2, infectious canine laryngotracheitis virus


Introduction

  • A cause of 'kennel cough' (canine infectious tracheobronchitis Acute infectious tracheobronchitis ).
  • Cause: canine adenovirus type 2.
  • Signs: cough, depression.
  • Diagnosis: serology or virus isolation.
  • Treatment: treat secondary bacterial infection if present.
  • Prognosis: excellent if uncomplicated.

Pathogenesis

Etiology

  • Adenovirus; serologically related to CAV-1 Canine adenovirus type 1 disease.
  • 75 nm non-enveloped DNA virus.
  • Moderately resistant: survives days to months in environment.
  • Inactivated by heating to 56°C (steam disinfection).

Predisposing factors

General
  • Contact with infected dog.
  • Boarding kennels.

Specific

  • Lack of effective vaccination.
  • Seronegative.

Pathophysiology

  • Highly infectious by aerosol → localized respiratory tract infection.
  • Replicate in upper and lower respiratory tract → shed in respiratory secretions.
  • Focal necrosis of turbinate/tonsillar epithelium.
  • Primary target site: bronchioles → proliferative, necrotizing bronchiolitis → peribronchiolar inflammation → interstitial pneumonia.
  • Secondary bacterial infection, egBordetella bronchiseptica Bordetella bronchiseptica ,Pasteurella multocida Pasteurella multocida ,Streptococcusspp Streptococcus spp → bronchopneumonia Lung: bacterial pneumonia.
  • Uncomplicated infections mild.

Timecourse

  • Incubation period 2-5 days.
  • Viral shedding for 6-9 days.
  • Recovery 3-7 days later unless secondary bacterial infection develops.

Epidemiology

  • Highly infectious; transmitted readily by aerosol; shed in respiratory secretions.
  • Rapid spread among unvaccinated dogs.
  • Morbidity 25-75%.
