Abstract

Canine parvovirus (CPV) was detected in three of 136 samples from dead raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) during 2016–17. By sequence and phylogenetic analysis of the complete VP2 gene, the strain belonged to CPV-2 and would be distinct from the previous reported CPV-2a and CPV-2b strains from Korean domestic dogs (Canis lupus familiaris). The results indicated that the CPV strains from raccoon dogs and domestic dogs might be not circulated between wild and domestic carnivores in Korea.
