Crenosoma vulpis infection in a four-month old puppy

with the manufacturer’s instructions, and partial mitochondrial 12S rRNA (~330 bp) and nuclear 18S rRNA (~1700 bp) genes were amplified as previously described ( Latrofa et al ., 2015 ). Results On physical examination the dog was bright, alert and responsive with a body condition score of 3/9. Her inspiratory effort was increased and an unproductive cough with terminal retch was noticed during the consultation, although there was no response on tracheal pinch. On thoracic auscultation, normal respiratory sounds were slightly exaggerated over the entire lung

min) ( Cherry et al., 1997) . DNA sequences were analyzed using BLASTn megablast ( http:// www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/Blast.cgi ) and deposited in GenBank (KP165404 and KP165405). The ITS1 sequences were aligned using CLUSTAL W (Tompson et al., 1997). Dendrogram was obtained by MEGA6.06 ( Tamura etal 2013) . Model with lowest BIC (Bayesian Information Criterion) scores was considered to describe the substitution pattern. Then, a phylogenetic tree was constructed using Maximum Likelihood with Kimura 2-parameter model (Gamma distribution) and complete deletion
