Abstract

Carnivore bocaparvovirus 1, historically known as Canine parvovirus type 1 or Canine minute virus (CnMV), infects dogs worldwide and could be responsible for different clinical signs in neonates and bitches during gestation. There is a limited number of CnMV sequences available in the NCBI database, so far. The present study aimed to obtain evidence of CnMV infection status among domestic dogs in Chile and characterize them phylogenetically.From forty blood samples, two partial nucleotide sequences of the VP2 coding gene were obtained and compared with 23 available sequences of Carnivore bocaparvovirus from 1 to 6. Chilean sequences grouped within CnMV, being sequence 5434 (Accession number, MH544475) more similar to the Japanese strain HM-6 and sequence 5323 (Accession number, MH544476) to the Chinese strain SH1.
