Multi 2 TB Coronavirus, Parvovirus / Panleukopenia Virus
The tamaVet® Multi 2TB (Coronavirus, Parvovirus) Test is intended for the rapid detection of specific canine and
feline coronavirus and parvovirus antigens in the faecal samples of dogs and cats. Both canine coronavirus (CCoV) and feline coronavirus (FCoV) belong to the Coronaviridae family and occur worldwide. The infection tends to be transmitted orally. Both canine parvovirus (CPV2, 2a, 2b, 2c) and feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) belong to the Parvoviridae
family, and transmission is usually oral or intrauterine.
As mixed infections often have similar symptoms such as
apathy, anorexia, diarrhoea, dehydration and fever, a
combination of both tests is recommended. Antigens can usually be detected approximately 3 to 14 days after
infection. The test is suitable for the early detection of suspected
infection with coronavirus and parvovirus or in the case of clinical symptoms. As the excretion of parvovirus decreases, and the excretion of coronavirus can be intermittent, the test should be repeated after 2 days.
