Pneumovirus in Dogs with Acute Respiratory Disease Emerging Infectious Diseases. Jun, 2010 | Pubmed ID: 20507755 To determine which respiratory viruses circulate among confined dogs, we analyzed nasal and pharyngeal swab specimens from shelter dogs with acute respiratory disease. An unknown virus was isolated. Monoclonal antibody testing indicated that it was probably a pneumovirus. PCR and sequence analysis indicated that it was closely related to murine pneumovirus.
