Canine parvovirus IgG ELISA kit is designed to determine quantitative amounts of IgG antibodies directed against canine parvovirus (CPV)(dog) in samples of plasma or serum. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.
Canine parvovirus (CPV) is a contagious viral infection that affects dogs, which can exist in two different forms. The intestinal form is the most common, characterised by weight loss, lack of appetite, anorexia and vomiting. The cardiac form is the less common, this can attack the heart muscles of very young puppies often resulting in death. Majority of cases for this infection have been identified in puppies between 6 weeks to 6 months old. CPV infections for majority of the time are caused by a genetic alteration of the original canine parvovirus (i.e. canine parvovirus type 2b), these parvovirus can be spread through either direct contact with infected dog or indirectly via the fecal-oral route. The infection incidence rates have been radically reduced through early vaccination of young puppies. CPV can be diagnosed with a physical examination, abdominal radiographs/ultrasounds, biochemical tests and urine analysis. Also, for diagnosis of canine parvovirus infection or vaccination control another common used procedure includes analysing antibody titre. The following procedure is composed of the virus that is able to attach to the solid phase by using specific monoclonal antibodies. IgG antibody titers that are above a dilution of 1:810 are frequently regarded as being protected.
The standard range of Ig antibodies to CPV using current canine parvovirus IgG ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.
