Abstract

Since the first identification of the virus in 1971, the disease caused by canine coronavirus (CCoV) has not been adequately investigated and the role that the virus plays in canine enteric illness has still not been well established. In the last decade, as a consequence of the relatively high mutation frequency of RNA positive stranded viruses, CCoV has evolved and a new genotype has been identified in the faeces of infected dogs. The several studies carried out by different researchers have focused upon the epidemiological relevance of these viruses and, considering the wide diffusion of CCoV infections among dog populations, the author underlines the need for further investigation on the biology of CCoV and on the pathogenetic role of their infections.
