Mycoplasma canis Real-time PCR Test Kit is to detect mycoplasma canis nucleic acid in canine nasopharyngeal, throat and eye swabs, which is rapid, accurate and easy-to-operate. Sensitivity 100%, Specificity 100%.
Mycoplasma canis is an opportunistic bacterial pathogen that may colonize dogs and cattle, which has been isolated from mucosal surfaces of dogs or cattle. It has also been associated with respiratory or urinary tract infections in dogs and has recently been identified in brain tissue samples of dogs presenting with meningoencephalitis. This kit uses fluorescence probe PCR (RT-PCR) method to detect the deserved gene of M. canis, which is helpful for diagnosis, monitoring and epidemiological investigation of M. canis.

What are the symptoms of Mycoplasma.canis？
Symptoms can vary depending on where the bacteria are located. These are some of the signs you might notice in your dog.
- Inflammation of the nose (rhinitis)
- Eye inflammation (conjunctivitis)
- Fluid build-up and discharge from the eyes
- Difficulty breathing (pneumonia)
- Infection in the bladder, urinary tract or vagina Infertility
- Joint disease (polyarthritis)
- General systemic illness (weight loss, fever)
- Neurological symptoms (meningoencephalitis)
How should mycoplasma canis be treated？
Mycoplasma does not respond to traditional beta-lam antibiotics such as penicillin because these drugs work by destroying the cell wall. However, many tetracycline antibiotics may be effective, and doxycycline is often prescribed. Upper respiratory infections require antibiotics for at least two weeks, or longer if your dog has lower respiratory symptoms or pneumonia. Your veterinarian will prescribe the appropriate dosage of antibiotics based on your dog's symptoms. It is important to continue treatment even after symptoms stop to ensure that all bacteria are killed and resistance does not develop. Any immunosuppressive drugs need to be discontinued, if possible, to ensure antibiotic effectiveness. Dogs with severe hemolytic anemia may require blood transfusions or corticosteroids.
