First molecular characterization of Babesia vogeli in two naturally infected dogs of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Large piroplasms (>2.5microm) were detected by direct microscopical investigation in 34 out of 16,767 (0.20%) canine blood smears in the Southern region of Greater Buenos Aires. Genomic DNA wasExpand
