Abstract: Ehrlichiosis is a disease caused by rickettsial organisms belonging to the genus Ehrlichia. In Brazil, molecular and serological studies have evaluated the occurrence of Ehrlichia species in dogs, cats, wild animals and humans. Ehrlichia canis is the main species found in dogs in Brazil, although E. ewingii infection has been recently suspected in five dogs. Ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA has been detected and characterized in mash deer, whereas E. muris and E. ruminantium have not yet been identified in Br… Show more

“…This implies the onset of clinical signs and hematological findings such as apathy, weight loss, fever, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, anemia, leukopenia or leukocytosis (WOODY;HOSKINS, 1991, NEER 1998VIEIRA et al, 2011). This did not happen in this case, given that this animal was brought back to the clinic for reinforcement every 21 days after the first vaccine dose (at the age of 45 days).…”

“…Ehrlichiosis, which is caused by Ehrlichia canis, has been recognized as an important worldwide infectious disease, especially in dogs (VIEIRA et al, 2011). Symptoms suggestive of ehrlichiosis infection have also been reported in domestic cats in several countries.…”

“…In Brazil, Ehrlichia canis is the agent of canine monocytic ehrlichiosis (CME), a canine disease of nearly worldwide distribution, transmitted by the tick Rhipicephalus sanguineus (HARRUS;WANER, 2011;VIEIRA et al, 2011). In North America, dogs can also be infected by Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Ehrlichia ewingii, which are important agents of zoonoses vectored by Amblyomma ticks in that continent WALKER, 2010).…”

“…Canine ehrlichiosis is a disease with high incidence among domestic dogs in Brazil (DAGNONE et al, 2003;NAKAGHI et al, 2008;FARIA et al, 2010;VIEIRA et al, 2011), with extensive mortality. It is a tick-borne disease caused by Gram-negative bacteria, of the species Ehrlichia canis, mostly transmitted by Rhipicephalus sanguineus (LEWIS et al, 1977;TROY;FORRESTER, 1990).…”

“…chaffeensis, E. ewingii, E. ruminantium, E. muris, E. equi, E. phagocytophila, E. risticii, E. ruminantium and E. sennetsu. Among these ten species, the first three and E. mineirensis (non-validated species) have been reported in Brazil, all with zoonotic potential (CRUZ et al, 2012;COWDRY, 1925;DUMLER et al, 2001;FOGGIE, 1949;HOLLAND et al, 1985;LEWIS et al, 1975;VIEIRA et al, 2011;WEN et al, 1995).…”
