Canine herpesvirus (CHV) is also commonly referred to as “fading puppy syndrome”, a virus that is a member of the Herpesviridae family which is often responsible for fatal hemorrhagic disease especially in puppies that are under 2-3 weeks old. Due to the fact that the thermos regulation of young pups does not function well, this can lead the virus multiplying rapidly and causing the pups to be heavily infected. Consequently, this infection will result in a high rate of mortality for many puppies. In adult dogs, this virus is predominately responsible for infecting the reproductive tract, this causes it to be passed to puppies during birth or even be sexually transmitted. This can lead to infertility, stillbirths and abortion. Diagnosing this disease in puppies is frequently accomplished through necropsy and treating the affected puppies is often difficult, antibodies to CHV have been used to inject into the abdomen. Some of the important things to consider during the diagnosis of CHV include: looking at clinical history, clinical signs and analysing laboratory findings (such as antibody detection methods). This ELISA assay is a monoclonal mediated antibody system which is specific in detecting antibodies against canine herpes virus in serum and plasma of dogs.
Canine herpesvirus (CHV) ELISA kit is intended for measuring antibodies against canine herpes virus (dog) in samples of plasma or serum. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.
The standard range of canine herpes virus (dog) antibodies using this canine herpesvirus (CHV) ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.
