Diagnostic test for Babesia Canis BC Ab for dogs

Babesiosis is the diseased state caused by the protozoal parasites of the genus Babesia. Infection in a dog may occur by tick transmission, direct transmission via blood transfer from dog bites, blood transfusions, or transplacental transmission. Babesia invades mammalian red blood cells causing anemia. The symptoms of Babesiosis infection are lethargy, weakness, lack of appetite, fever, vomiting, pale mucous membranes, and dark discoloration of the urine. Other symptoms may present, including neurological and respiratory signs. The species of Babesia that infected pets should not pose any problems to people with normal immune systems.

Three of the Babesia species (Babesia gibsoni, Babesia vogeli, and Babesia canis) are detectable with REDTEST Rapid Diagnostic Babesia Test according to the clinical study.
