Abstract

Investigou-se a ocorrência da infecção pelo vírus da imunodeficiência felina (FIV) e pelo vírus da leucemia felina (FeLV) em gatos domésticos, provenientes de dois abrigos, no município de Belo Horizonte. Amostras de sangue de 145 animais foram coletadas e testadas para detecção do FIV pela reação em cadeia da polimerase (PCR). Destas amostras, 40 foram testadas para o antígeno p26 de FeLV por meio de ELISA. Observaram-se duas fêmeas (1,4%) e quatro machos (2,8%) positivos para FIV e nove fêmeas (22,5%) e quatro machos (10,0%) positivos para FeLV.<br>The occurrence of the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia virus (FeLV) was investigated in domestic cats from two shelters of Belo Horizonte. Samples from 145 cats were collected and tested for FIV by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Forty out of 145 samples were tested for FeLV p27 antigen by a commercial ELISA kit. Two females (1.4%) and four males (2.8%) were positive for FIV. For FeLV tests, 13 cats (32.5%) were positive, being nine females (22.5%) and four males (10.0%)
