In this study, the possibility that dogs could eventually be carriers of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) after having eaten (voluntarily or accidentally) IBDV-infected chicks has been evaluated. A single Beagle dog was fed chicks infected by a very virulent IBDV strain (vvIBDV). Afterwards, the presence and viability of IBDV in the faeces was assessed. Viable vvIBDV was detected in the dog's faeces for 2 days after the initial ingestion, which indicates excretion of vvIBDV.
