Canine parvovirus (CPV) and canine coronavirus (CCV) are potentially pathogens for enteritis. Although their symptoms are quite the same, their virulence is different. CCV is the second leading viral cause of diarrhea in puppies with canine parvovirus being the leader. Unlike CPV, CCV infections are not generally associated with high death rates. CCV is not uncommon in the canine population. Dual CCV-CPV infections were identified in 15-25% of cases of severe enteritis in the USA. Another study showed that CCV was found in 44% of fatal gastro-enteritis cases that were initially identified as only CPV disease. CCV is widespread among the canine population since many years. The age of the dog is also important. If a disease occurs in puppy, it often leads to death. In mature dog the symptoms are less pronounced. The possibility for healing is higher. Puppies less than twelve weeks of age are at the greatest risk and some especially weaker ones will die if exposed and infected. A combined infection leads to a much more severe disease than occurs with either CCV or CPV alone, and is often fatal.
The test-it CORONA/PARVO DOG is designed to detect the antigens of canine Coronavirus and canine Parvovirus in canine feces. Two antibodies in the test specifically bind with different epitopes of the antigens. After being absorbed into the cellulose pad, the antigens of canine Coronavirus move and bind with gold-colloid complex of anti-canine Coronavirus of the conjugate pad, forming antibody-antigene complex. This complex, then, forms antibody-antigene-antibody direct sandwich binding with the antibody of another monoclonal anti-canine Coronavirus in the nitrocellulose membrane. The test results are shown on Control line (C) and Test line (T) by means of the principles of immunochromatography.
