Abstract

Antibodies against Ehrlichia canis , the cause of canine monocytic herlichiosis, have been reported previously in clinically ill and stray dogs from Portugal. In this study, the 16 S rRNA gene of E. canis was detected by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in 12 / 55 (22%) of dogs with tick-borne disease in the Algarve region in Portugal.
