Abstract:In February and July of 1999, the red pandas in Chongqing Zoo and Yaan Bifengxia Zoo were attacked by the canine distemper virus. It resulted in all death of eleven red pandas in Chongqing Zoo and four death of sixteen red pandas in Yaan Biffengxia Zoo, and the death ratio reached 100% and 25% separately in two zoos. Although there were some difference between the clinic symptom and pathology change, all red pandas that infected the virus expressed the blood stool, polypnea, loss of appetite, lassitude and bleed in lung. The strain (cdv 2) from Yaan Bifengxia Zoo had better adaptability to VERO cell (TCID50 was 10-6) than the strain (cdv 1) that isolated from Chongqing Zoo. The strain cdv 1 and strain cdv 2 had positive reaction with serum against canine distemper virus, and the strain cdv 2 appeared a clear precipitation line with positive serum. Otherwise, twelve red pandas were saved through using the serum against canine distemper virus from dog.
