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.
