Typing of carnivore parvoviruses

Quantitative analysis and strain typing (vaccinal/infectious) allowing a reliable diagnosis on recently vaccinated animals, regardless of the vaccine used (vaccine strains available on the French veterinary market).

Test indications

  • Diagnosis of distemper in dogs, the ferret.
  • Post diagnostic monitoring.
  • Evaluation you epidemiological risk (highlighting viral circulation in communities).

Test characteristics

Samples to be taken

  • Sang acid EDTA (whatever the clinical form)
  • Blood and LCR on EDTA for pure nervous forms
  • Sang acid EDTA and conjunctival or oropharyngeal cells (swabs) in the presence of respiratory signs (possibility of also carrying out a diagnosis of kennel cough)
  • Kidney, spleen, liver, lung post-mortem (unfixed)
    In chronic forms, it is recommended to take several samples (blood and other samples depending on clinical signs).
  • For the suivi post-diagnostic, it is preferable to look for the virus on a mixture of samples (blood, urine, conjunctival and oropharyngeal cells).

Interpretation of the result

  • Negative result: Absence of distemper virus in the sample or quantity below the detection threshold. Allows you to exclude an acute form of distemper.
  • Positive result : Compatible with distemper or viral circulation
  • Low vaccine virus load : identification of the vaccine strain, probably linked to a recent vaccination.

Information regarding the vaccines used as well as the dates of vaccination are necessary for the interpretation of the result (to be indicated on the analysis request form).
