Diagnostic test for EHR-ANA Ab Combo Test for dogs
Anaplasmosis is a tick-borne disease caused by the infectious bacterial organism Anaplasma phagocytophilum. It is transmitted through bites of the deer tick (also known as the black-legged tick) and western black-legged tick. Often causes lameness, joint pain, high fever, lethargy, and anorexia (lack of appetite), sometimes vomiting, diarrhea, seizure activity or coughing. In the majority of cases, symptoms improve rapidly if they are treated early.
Ehrlichiosis is a tick-borne infectious disease of dogs, usually carried by the brown dog tick caused by Ehrlichia canis bacteria. Animals infected with E. canis may experience a combination of signs, including fever, lethargy, weight loss, lymphadenopathy, edema of the appendages, discharge from nose and eyes, and seizures. A long course of treatment, generally four weeks, is needed.
The REDTEST Ehrlichia-Anaplasma (EHR-ANA) Antibody Combo Test can diagnose the presence of antibodies Ehrlichia canis, Ehrlichia ewingii, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Anaplasma platys in dog’s blood specimen.
