Diagnostic test for Canine Parvovirus CPV Ab for dogs

The canine parvovirus (CPV) infection is a highly contagious viral disease that affects unvaccinated puppies and dogs. Dogs that develop the disease show signs of the illness within 3 to 7 days. The virus affects dogs' gastrointestinal tracts and is spread by direct dog-to-dog contact and direct or indirect contact with contaminated feces (stool), environments, or people. There is evidence that the CPV virus can live in ground soil for up to a year. It is resistant to most cleaning products, or even to weather changes. The major symptoms associated with the intestinal form of a canine parvovirus infection include: severe and bloody diarrhea, lethargy, anorexia, fever or hypothermia, vomiting, bloating and weight loss. Persistent vomiting and diarrhea can cause rapid dehydration, and damage to the intestines and immune system can cause septic shock. The less common form is the cardiac form, which attacks the heart muscles of fetuses and very young puppies, often leading to death. Most deaths from parvovirus occur within 48 to 72 hours following the onset of clinical signs. Early recognition and aggressive treatment are very important in successful outcomes. With proper treatment, survival rates can approach 90%. The mortality can reach 91% in untreated cases.
