Arthropod-borne diseases have been recently studied in Brazilian wild animals, which can act as hosts for both vectors and pathogens, many of which showing zoonotic potential. The presence of domestic animals in the wild and vice versa results in a higher human exposure to agents transmitted by arthropods circulating in wild animals. The present study aims to investigate the presence of Ehrlichia spp. and Anaplasma spp. in blood samples from wild canids habiting the area of southern Mato Grosso's Pantanal. Positive samples will be molecularly characterized by sequencing, aiming at validating, comparing with sequences previously deposited in GenBank and phylogenetic analysis. Thus, the results will contribute to the diagnosis and molecular characterization of the arthropod-borne pathogens in southern Mato Grosso Pantanal.
