The most common clinical signs of canine parvovirus (CPV) are acute vomiting and diarrhea, often severe. The diarrhea may or may not be bloody. Affected dogs are typically lethargic and can quickly become dehydrated.Puppies under five months and dogs who have never been vaccinated are at greatest risk for infection.
CPV is diagnosed by evaluating the animal's clinical signs in conjunction with diagnostic tests. Not all cases of bloody diarrhea and vomiting are caused by CPV, so a definitive diagnosis should be sought to help guide treatment.
The fecal CPV ELISA antigen tests utilize a fecal swab to detect CPV antigen, provide quick results (usually within 10-15 minutes) and are very easy to perform.
Positive results are a reliable indicator of infection when associated with consistent clinical signs. Negative results may occur even when the dog is infected if the level of virus in the sample is low -- this can be seen early in the course of disease and/or when clinical signs are mild.
The ELISA should be completed on any dog displaying clinical signs consistent with CPV infection but should not be used in healthy-appearing animals. Recent vaccination (within 7 days) with a modified-live virus parvovirus vaccine can occasionally result in false positive ELISA test results.
