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. ELISA assay systems are frequently used, where the virus 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.
Canine parvovirus (CPV) IgG ELISA kit is designed to determine quantitative amounts of canine parvovirus (dog) IgG antibodies in samples of plasma or serum. This assay has a quantitative and qualitative standard range.
The standard range of canine parvovirus (dog) using this canine parvovirus (CPV) IgG ELISA kit is qualitative and quantitative. Please contact us for the protocol insert for more details.
