Canine herpesvirus 1 (CHV-1), a member of the alphaherpesvirus sub-family, is known to cause fatal infections in litters of puppies and may also be involved in infertility, abortion, and stillbirths in adult dogs. The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of CHV-1 DNA using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in twelve key sites that have been associated with latency for the other herpesviruses. A 605 base pair portion of the viral glycoprotein B (gB) gene was amplified using… CONTINUE READING
