canine adenovirus

a virus that causes respiratory disease in dogs; not zoonotic; component of the vaccines routinely administered to dogs; attenuated virus is protective against both CAV-1 and CAV-2.

canine acidophil-cell hepatitis
an acute or chronic hepatitis reported in dogs in Great Britain, distinct from that caused by infectious canine hepatitis virus, characterized by the histopathologic presence of acidophil cells. Chronic active hepatitis and sometimes hepatocellular carcinoma may occur. The cause is unknown, but a viral etiology is suspected.
canine adenovirus
type 1 (CAV-1) causes infectious canine hepatitis; type 2 (CAV-2) is one cause of canine respiratory disease complex (kennel cough).
canine babesiosis
hemolytic disease of dogs caused by Babesia canis or B. gibsoni, transmitted by a tick, and characterized by anemia and hemoglobinuria. Called also tick fever, malignant jaundice.
canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome
age-related deterioration of cognitive functions characterized by behavioral changes, disorientation, reduced level of interaction with others, and loss of sensory perception.
canine erythrocyte antigen (CEA)
nomenclature revised to dog erythrocyte antigen (DEA).
canine gastrointestinal hemorrhage syndrome
see canine hemorrhagic gastroenteritis.
canine herpesvirus infection
a cause of a generalized, acute, rapidly fatal disease in neonatal puppies. In puppies older than 3 weeks and adults, mild to inapparent upper respiratory disease or vesicular genital lesions occur. The difference in age susceptibility is attributed to the temperature-dependent growth characteristics of the virus in that the optimum temperature for viral replication is about 91°F (33°C) so that puppies that are hypothermic develop severe, often fatal disease. Recovered puppies or dogs may have persistence of the virus in the genital or respiratory tracts.

Virologic and bacteriologic investigations on the parenchymatous organs did not detect common canine pathogens, notably canine parvovirus type 2, canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus type 1 and type 2.
Schultz considers the following vaccines to be the "core" (or basic) vaccines that every dog should receive: canine distemper (CDV), canine parvovirus 2 (CPV-2), canine adenovirus 2 (CAV), and rabies.
