specific in situ hybridization of Haemobartonella
felis with a DNA probe and tyramide signal amplification.
Molecular, clinical and pathologic comparison of two distinct strains of Haemobartonella
felis in domestic cats.
In the year 1939, Tyzzer and Weinman created the new genus Haemobartonella
. The present name Mycoplasma haemocanis was proposed since 2002 (Naila et al., 2010).
Haemotropic mycoplasmosis or haemoplasmosis in dogs is associated with Mycoplasma haemocanis and Candidatus Mycoplasma haematoparvum, which were formerly known as Haemobartonella
felis causing feline infectious anaemia until recently was classified as a rickettsial organism.
The donor should be negative for Ehrlichia canis, Babesia canis, Haemobartonella
canis, brucella canis and for microfilaria of Dirofilaria immitis (Sackman, 1998).
