The problem of contagious respiratory disease in the dog is discussed, A wide variety of micro-organisms have been isolated from dogs with respiratory- disease but there was a lack of experimental evidence to show that most of these agents were capable of inducing disease. Recently, in addition to canine distemper several viruses have been found in the respiratory secretions and tissues of dogs with respiratory disease. PART 1 of the thesis dealt with a study of canine herpesvirus (OHV) respiratory infection. PART 2 of the work was concerned with a study of canine adenovirus respiratory infection. PART 3 the thesis dealt with a study of reovirus type 1 infection. PART 4 of this study dealt with the application of organ culture techniques to canine respiratory virus infections.
