Canine Rickettsia Real-time PCR Test Kit can be used to detect Rickettsial nucleic acid in canine blood sample, which is rapid and accurate.
Rickettsial infections and related infections (such as anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, and Q fever) are caused by an unusual type of bacteria that can live only inside the cells of another organism. Most of these infections are spread through ticks, mites, fleas, or lice. A fever, a severe headache, and usually a rash develop are felt by people.
This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of Rickettsial, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of Rickettsial.

What is Rickettsial Infection?
Rickettsial infections are caused by bacteria from the Rickettsia genus, which are often carried by arthropods such as ticks and fleas. There are several different types of the infection, with two more commonly seen in dogs. The infection may be treated with antibiotics, but the treatment needs to begin as soon as possible, which is why an early, correct diagnosis is important for a better outcome. Rickettsia bacteria are the cause of several infections, including ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever in canines. Ticks are absolutely the most common vectors of the bacteria for dogs, with three species being the most prevalent. Rickettsial infections may lead to severe clinic signs if allowed to progress to the chronic stage.
