Canine Coronavirus Real-time PCR Test Kit can be used to detect CCoV nucleic acid in canine and feline mouth, nose and eye swab, which is rapid and accurate.
Canine coronavirus (CCoV) is an enveloped, positive-sense, single-stranded RNA virus which is a member of the species Alphacoronavirus 1. It causes a highly contagious intestinal disease worldwide in dogs. CCoV is usually responsible for mild, self-limiting infections restricted to the enteric tract.
This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of CCoV, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of CCoV.

How is canine coronavirus transmitted?
Most cases of canine coronavirus are contracted by oral contact with infected fecal matter. A dog may also become infected by eating from contaminated food bowls or by direct contact with an infected dog.
What are the signs of canine coronavirus?
Most canine coronavirus infections are sub-clinical and produce few clinical signs in dogs. Occasionally an infection may cause more severe symptoms, particularly in young puppies. The most typical sign associated with canine coronavirus is diarrhea, typically sudden in onset, which may be accompanied by lethargy and decreased appetite. The stool is loose, with a fetid odor and orange tint. It may contain blood or mucus. If a puppy has a mixed infection, for instance, both coronavirus and parvovirus (see handout "Parvovirus in Dogs"), the illness will be more severe.
Are there diseases that can be confused with canine coronavirus?
There are many causes of diarrhea in dogs. Severe cases of coronavirus can be easily confused with parvovirus, and they may occur at the same time. Be sure to see your veterinarian if your dog has diarrhea that does not resolve within twenty- four hours or is associated with significant lethargy or loss of appetite.
Is there any treatment?
There is no specific treatment for canine coronavirus. Canine coronavirus vaccines are available. This vaccine is not recommended for all dogs and will be administered based on your dog's lifestyle and risk assessment. This vaccine will only work for the CCoV type of coronavirus. It is not effective for the prevention of COVID-19.
