The first kobuviruses described from Africa

The first kobuviruses described from Africa

An international team of researchers led by scientists at the German Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) genetically describe the first kobuviruses to be reported from Africa. The results show that the viruses are less host-specific than previously assumed. The study has been published in the scientific journal Virology.

knowledge of the recently described genus Kobuvirus limited. In humans and livestock, kobuviruses are known to cause gastroenteritis and hence are important for both health and economic reasons. To date, canine kobuvirus is known to infect domestic dogs in Europe, the and Asia. Before the current study, the only wild carnivore known to be infected with canine kobuvirus was the red fox in Europe, and Kobuvirus infection had not been reported from Africa.

A team of researchers from the Tanzanian Wildlife Research Institute, the Ecosystem Alliance (USA) and the IZW investigated Kobuvirus infection in wild carnivores in the Serengeti National Park (NP) in Tanzania, East Africa, and in domestic dogs living in villages outside the park. Using state-of-the-art molecular techniques, the scientists were able to provide the complete Kobuvirus genome from three wild carnivore species, the hyena, the side- jackal and golden jackal, and the local domestic dog.

These species were infected with canine kobuvirus strains genetically from those in geographical regions outside Africa. Interestingly, the strains infecting wild carnivores inside the Serengeti NP were genetically distinct from those infecting domestic dogs outside the park, and genetically distinct strains were detected in domestic dogs from different villages. By demonstrating for the first time canine kobuvirus in a non-canid host, the spotted hyena, the results of the study provide evidence that kobuviruses are less host-specific than previously thought.

    Best food out there!, June 18, 2014
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I have 6 dogs. I used to buy Wellness Core at a price of $60+ every 2 weeks. My Vet recommended this and my dogs love it. I buy the weight management formula and my dogs have lost weight and are still very healthy. I have all sizes and breeds from a Shih Tzu to a Golden Retriever. Calorie content is listed. And Amazon has good prices…I do have an issue with their shipping/packaging. The box is always ripped up and last time the contents was missing (I had ordered dog treats as well). Amazon gave me a complete refund.
    I have since started ordering from and have had a better packaging experience. And prices are even better!

    the dogfood is wonderful. i’m putting here a one star to warn anyone that orders 35lb or larger bags of dogfood on subscription service, that you should plan on ONLY getting dogfood. If you order 4 other items to get your 15% discount, then all your other items will be put in a casket of a box with your dogfood and they will all be crushed and destroyed by the time it arrives at your house. Numerous complaints to Amazon month after month on packaging feedback and returning items severely damaged, has yielded ZERO result. Amazon OPS team is too dumb to figure out that a 35lb item is going to damage anything else in it’s proximity during shipping and delivery process and/or they just don’t care. Oh BTW, I work for Amazon.

    Recommended by our vet, and wow, was he right!, January 16, 2013

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    My dog is a lazy little apartment dweller, and always on the lookout for a snack, so keeping her at a healthy weight is a challenge – there’s not much leeway weight-wise when you are a 15 pound dog. She didn’t like most canned or dry food, whether from the store or the vet, so she begged all the time. Our vet recommended this food, and even said we should order it at Amazon because it is hard to find on the store shelves here.

    That vet surely knows his stuff. My dog tore into the first bowl of this food like it was her first meal in days. Over the last three vet visits, her weight has stayed exactly the same. The food is easy to digest, so there is a lot less waste to pick up. The main ingredient is chicken, which is probably a lot better for a carnivore than a corn-based food. She’s really cut down on the begging, too. I guess because she is getting better nutrition, she’s probably not as hungry all the time. We didn’t have to introduce the food gradually, either. Just switched to the new food, no stomach upset or any other trouble.

    Try it – your dog will thank you! Well, actually, the dog will probably just eat, but you’ll know he’d thank you if he could!
