Molecular detection of arthropod-borne agents in domestic cats from Fundação Parque Zoológico de São Paulo, São Paulo, and Campo Grande city, Mato Grosso do Sul

Abstract

Nowadays, the presence of domestic animals in wild environments, and vice-versa, has facilitated the dissemination of pathogens in new hosts and areas. Anaplasmataceae agents, such as Ehrlichia canis e Anaplasma phagocytophilum, can parasitized domestic and wild felines. Intra-erythrocytic piroplasms, such as Babesia felis, B. cati, B. canis canis e B. canis presentii parasitize domestic cats; on the other hand, B. felis, B. herpailuri, B. pantherae and B. leo can parasitize wild felids. Cytauxzoon felis can cause severe disease in cats, resulting often in death. Hemoplasmas (hemotrophic mycoplasmas) comprise bacteria that infect erythrocytes are responsable for feline infectious anemia. Bartonella species, gram-negative bacteria which circulate between felids and invertebrate hosts, infect erythrocytes and endothelial cells, causing ocasionally disease in human beings. Felids can acquire Hepatozoon sp. through ingestion of oocysts-infected ticks. Few reports have been done about the ocurrence of tick-borne agents in felids in Brazil. The first study of the present work aims to verify if those supracited agents, recently detected in wild felids maintained in captivity in Brazilian zoos, also circulate among stray cats from Fundação Parque Zoológico de São Paulo, SP. The second study of the present work aims to detect the presence of hemoplasma and Bartonella spp. DNA in roaming and domestic cats blood samples from Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul. (AU)
