scil v-Parvo

scil v-Parvo

The scil v-Parvo is a diagnostic test for animals (dogs and cats) and is used for the detection of specific antigens of Parvovirus (CPV, FPV) in feces. Canine Parvovirus type 2 (CPV2) is the causative agent of gastroenteritis. The new types of CPV2 are also infectious for felines and can be transmitted between the species. A negative result with the scil v-Parvo antigen test does not completely rule out a parvovirus infection: Fecal shedding of parvovirus antigen at detectable levels typically occurs between 3-12 days post-exposure and usually correlates with the onset of clinical signs. In puppies with moderate maternal antibody levels, viral shedding may be delayed by 1-2 days relatively to the onset of clinical signs. Virus shedding begins to wane by day 8-10 (post infection). The scil v-Parvo is an antigen detecting test that confirms suspected cases of parvovirus infection within 10 minutes with the possibility to start the treatment directly on site.
