FASTest Parvo Card – Canine Parvovirus

For The Detection Of Parvovirus Antigens

Test applicable to: Dog, Cat and Mink
Sample: Faeces

FASTest PARVO Card is a rapid immunochromatographic “lateral flow” test for the detection of antigen to Canine Parvovirus antigen in the faeces of dog, cat and mink. Parvovirus infection is a common cause of canine infectious enteritis. It is highly contagious. Therefore, a rapid and reliable diagnosis via in-house tests is important in a clinical setting. The precise diagnosis of a CPV infection enables the veterinarian to apply immediate treatment and to introduce quarantine measures for infected animals.

Prevalence of Canine Parvovirus

Although vaccination has greatly reduced the prevalence of Parvo CPV2 infection in the U.K., the recent economic recession has led to a reduction in vaccinations and an increase in CPV2 outbreaks. Maternal antibody is also causing a problem by neutralising vaccine in puppies and allowing a window of opportunity for infection in-between vaccinations. It is therefore vital for every veterinary practice to be on their guard and have the capability to quickly confirm CPV2 infections. FASTest Parvo Card allows veterinary practices to do this quickly and easily.

Why is it important to test for Canine Parvovirus antigen?

Canine Parvovirus (CPV2) is one of the most common and deadly causes of canine viral gastroenteritis in the world. Canine Parvovirus was identified in 1978 as a course of diarrhoea in dogs. It was discovered in North America and then rapidly spread throughout the world. Feline Parvovirus, the panleucopenia virus in cats and the enteritis virus in the mink have similar structures to Canine Parvovirus.


What are the symptoms of Canine Parvovirus?

Clinical signs are vomiting, dehydration and haemorrhagic gastroenteritis although these can vary in degree according to age, stress, vaccination status and other concurrent infections. Puppies are oronasally infected at an early age. The viruses are discharged via the faeces by the infected animals and remain infectious within the environment for up to one year. Dog kennels can be permanently contaminated. In addition, CPV2 has a high rate of mutation with 3 variants now being recognised Parvo; CPV2a, CPV2b, and CPV2c. However, mortality can be high and exceed 90% in untreated puppies.
