Abstract
An investigation was carried out to test for mink circovirus (MiCV) infection in samples from minks, foxes and raccoon dogs with diarrhea in China. The results demonstrated that the infection rates of MiCV in minks, foxes and raccoon dogs were very high on some fur farms in China. The fox was the most sensitive animal to the viral infection, followed by the mink and the raccoon dog. Furthermore, three isolates, MiCV-LN, Fox CV-JL, and Raccoon CV-HLJ, were closely related to the previously reported isolate MiCV-DL13, with 99 % homology. Moreover, concurrent infection with MiCV and other pathogens may contribute to the disease in minks, foxes and raccoon dogs, as the rate of coinfection of MiCV and E. coli was 9 % (7/78) and that of triple infection (MiCV+ E. coli+ MEV) was 1.3 % (1/78) among the samples.
