Poultry, Horses, Guinea Pigs. Cats and Dogs
Two-hundred turkey, 200 chickens, and 200 ducks were found to be negative for PCV1-specific antibodies as determined by an IFA (Allan et al. 1994). Rodríguez-Arrioja et al. (2003) tested 20 poultry by ISH. All were found negative for PCV2-specific nucleic acids. Ellis et al. (2001) tested sera from 100 Canadian horses for PCV-antibodies by ELISA and found no evidence of PCV2- or PCV1-specific antibodies. Seven horses were negative by ISH for PCV2-specific antibodies and 21 horses were negative for PCV2-specific antibodies by IPMA (Rodríguez-Arrioja et al., 2003). Three Guinea pigs and 21 dogs were negative for PCV2-nucleic acids by ISH, and 13 dogs and 15 cats were negative for PCV2-antibodies by IPMA (Rodríguez-Arrioja et al., 2003).
