Canine Infuenza Virus Real-time PCR Test Kit

Product Code
Kit Principle



Canine Infuenza Virus Real-time PCR Test Kit  can be used to detect CIV nucleic acid in canine mouth, nose and eye swab. which is rapid, accurate and easy-to-operate. Sensitivity 100%, Specificity 100%.

Canine influenza virus (CIV) is an infectious respiratory disease caused by an influenza A virus, similar to the viral strains that cause influenza in people. It is primarily the result of two influenza strains: H3N8 from an equine origin and H3N2 from an avian origin. Both of these strains were previously known to infect species other than dogs, but are now able to infect and spread among dogs.

This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of CIV, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of CIV.

What Is Canine influenza?

Canine influenza (also known as dog flu) is a contagious respiratory disease in dogs caused by specific Type A influenza viruses known to infect dogs. These are called “canine influenza viruses.” No human infections with canine influenza have ever been reported. There are two different influenza A dog flu viruses: one is an H3N8 virus and the other is an H3N2 virus. Canine influenza A(H3N2) viruses are different from seasonal influenza A(H3N2) viruses that spread annually in people.

How to treat canine influenza?

Treatment consists primarily of supportive care, which helps keep the dog hydrated and comfortable while his body mounts an immune response to the infection to facilitate recovery. In milder ailments, this care may include medications to make your dog more comfortable and fluids to ensure your dog remains well hydrated. Your veterinarian may prescribe broad-spectrum antibiotics if a secondary bacterial infection is suspected.
