A serological survey was conducted to ascertain, by haemagglutination inhibition testing, the presence of antibodies to canine parvovirus in 428 dogs in New South Wales, Australia. The first positive canine serum was one collected in May 1978 and the numbers of serologically positive dogs have increased markedly over the last 18 months. Twenty cats which had been vaccinated with feline panleucopenia vaccine were tested for antibody to the canine virus. None of them had a positive titre.
