Diagnostic test for Canine Distemper Virus CDV Ab for dogs

Canine Distemper (CDV Ab) is a highly contagious viral disease affecting mainly puppies between 2-5 months of age. Puppies and dogs most often become infected through airborne exposure (through sneezing or coughing) to the virus from an infected dog or wild animal. The virus can also be transmitted by shared food and water bowls and equipment. Infected dogs can shed the virus for months, and mother dogs can pass the virus through the placenta to their puppies. We distinguish the following forms: catarrhal, pulmonary, gastro-intestinal, nervous, ocular and cutaneous, therefore the symptoms and course of the disease are very diverse. The first signs of canine distemper include sneezing, coughing and thick mucus coming from the eyes and nose. Fever, lethargy, sudden vomiting and diarrhea, depression and/or loss of appetite are also symptoms of the virus. No specific treatment for the canine distemper is known.
Fast detection of the cause of the disease enables an effective treatment and nursing care.
