chapter-161 OVERVIEW An important step in the pathogenesis of canine infectious respiratory disease (CIRD) involves the colonization of the upper airway mucosa by primary respiratory pathogens. In the susceptible host and the proper environment, these primary respiratory pathogens are capable of bypassing the mechanical barriers, evading the innate immune response, and disrupting mucociliary clearance, thereby allowing both primary and secondary bacterial and viral pathogens to...
