Canine adenovirus (CAV) is a complex disease which is frequently found in either wild or even domestic dogs, usually in majority of cases the dogs that are infected tend to only have subclinical infections which mostly recover completely. At present there are two sub-groups that have been identified CAV-1 and CAV-2. This virus can be spread through the blood, urine, saliva, nasal discharge and faeces of infected dogs and in most cases is contracted through the nose or mouth and it replicated within the tonsils. The virus often infects the kidneys and the liver and as an incubation period between 4-7 days. Diagnosis of this disease can be made through a combination antibody detection, clinical history and clinical signs, also an elevated level of antibody titer to CAV-1 can be observed. The disease can be often confused with canine parvovirus, since both lead to low white blood cell count and bloody diarrhea in unvaccinated, young dogs.
Canine adenovirus (CAV) ELISA kit can be used for measuring antibodies against canine adenovirus (dog) in plasma and serum samples. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.
The standard range of CAV (canine adenovirus) antibody using this canine adenovirus (CAV) ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.
