Canine vector-borne diseases in Brazil

Abstract: Canine vector-borne diseases (CVBDs) are highly prevalent in Brazil and represent a challenge to veterinarians and public health workers, since some diseases are of great zoonotic potential. Dogs are affected by many protozoa (e.g., Babesia vogeli, Leishmania infantum, and Trypanosoma cruzi), bacteria (e.g., Anaplasma platys and Ehrlichia canis), and helminths (e.g., Dirofilaria immitis and Dipylidium caninum) that are transmitted by a diverse range of arthropod vectors, including ticks, fleas, lice, triatomin… Show more

“…The occurrence (5.47%) of coinfections in dogs caused by A. platys and E. canis reinforces the hypothesis that these infections are probably transmitted by the same vector; similar results were observed in different geographical regions in Brazil (DANTAS-TORRES, 2008;DAGNONE et al, 2009;RAMOS et al, 2009;SANTOS et al, 2009). This phenomenon was also described in dogs from Thailand (SUKSAWAT et al, 2001b), Venezuela (SUKSAWAT et al, 2001a;HUANG et al, 2005), and Grenada (YABSLEY et al, 2008).…”

“…Cases of co-infection by B. vogeli, E. canis and A. platys are frequently found due to the common tick vector of Brazilian dogs, R. sanguineus (DAGNONE et al, 2003;NAKAGHI et al, 2008;OLIVEIRA et al, 2008), which can transmit all three agents (DANTAS-TORRES, 2008). Moreover, the environmental conditions may have contributed to the animals' exposure to the agents, since they lived in the same location (CZC).…”

“…Furthermore, A. phagocytophilum also has been detected molecularly in dogs in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (SANTOS et al, 2011). Although dogs infected with A. platys and A. phagocytophilum usually present mild symptoms or are asymptomatic (HARRUS et al, 1997;KOHN et al, 2008;RAR;GOLOVLJOVA, 2011), some cases may be serious or fatal, particularly when co-infections are involved (DANTAS-TORRES, 2008). The confirmation of the occurrence of E. ewingii ) and A. phagocytophilum (SANTOS et al, 2011) in dogs from Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro, respectively, showed that other Anaplasmataceae agents circulate among dogs in Brazil, although the vector tick species involved in these transmission routes remains unknown.…”

“…Two extensive reports on cestodes in wild carnivores in Brazil (Travassos, 1965;Vieira et al, 2008) do not include this species, which has only been found in domestic dogs and cats (Travassos, 1965;Dantas-Torres, 2008). A similar pattern is seen in other South American countries, as this cestode is reported only in the pampas fox (Lycalopex gymnocercus; Carnivora, Canidae) in Argentina (Lucherini and Vidal, 2008).…”
