The prevalence of spotted fever group rickettsial infection in dogs from a remote indigenous community in the Northern Territory (NT) was determined using molecular tools. Blood samples collected from 130 dogs in the community of Maningrida were subjected to a spotted fever group (SFG)-specific PCR targeting the omp B gene followed by a Rickettsia felis-specific PCR targeting the glt A gene of R. felis. Rickettsia felis omp B and glt A genes were amplified from the blood of 3 dogs. This study… CONTINUE READING
