  • Modern Veterinary Therapeutics, LLC announces that the USDA-Center for Veterinary Biologics has approved our Canine Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen Test Kit. This new Canine Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen Test Kit is the first rapid in-clinic chromatographic immunoassay test in the U.S. market for the qualitative detection of both Coronavirus and Parvovirus antigens in canine feces simultaneously. Canine Parvovirus and Coronavirus cause sporadic outbreaks of vomiting and diarrhea in dogs. The rate of simultaneous infection of CPV and CCV is up to 25% of CPV infections (Evermann 1989,) and simultaneous infection is much more severe and fatal than a single infection. The clinical sign of CCV is usually mild enteritis, and some deaths have been reported in young dogs. The clinical signs of CPV and CCV are very similar (diarrhea and vomiting) making it difficult to differentiate which virus is the causative agent by clinical signs alone. The Canine Parvovirus-Coronavirus Antigen Test Kit is highly sensitive and specific, providing a positive or negative result in 5 minutes to help practitioners recognize these viruses in the clinic. The tests are easy to use, can be stored at room temperature, and have a 2-year shelf life.
