DNA samples from dogs presenting with symptoms suggestive of canine ehrlichiosis, but with no morulae detected on blood smears, frequently failed to give a positive reaction with a North American Ehrlichia canis-specific PCR assay targeting the 16S rRNA gene. We suspected the presence of a pathogen genetically different from North American E. canis, and we performed experiments to test this hypothesis. DNA from one canine blood sample was subjected to PCR with primers designed to amplify… CONTINUE READING
