More information

The Canine Coronavirus (CCoV) belongs to the most common causal agents of viral enteritides in dogs of all ages. Group husbandry encourages the onset of a CCoV infection with clinical symptoms. This is due to its high infectiveness. The antibody prevalence is up to 54 % for pet dogs and 80 % for kennel dogs.

Infection takes place orally via infected feces, (elimination ca. 3-14 days post infection) or via direct contact with infected animals.

A pure CCoV infection is characterised by a mild, often self-limiting course with anorexia, apathy and more or less severe diarrhoea. Newborn puppies often show a severe course of the disease. Unspecific signs of enteritis like diarrhoea, respiratory or central nervous symptoms can occur.

Clinically, CCoV infection can hardly be differentiated from a mild CPV infection, but a CCoV infection never shows a leukopenia. The infection course can be transient (shedding ceases after several months, healthy dog) as well as persistent (life-long elimination in case of dogs with or without chronic diarrhoea).

Due to co-infections (25 % of all cases of canine enteritis) of CCoV with Canine Parvovirus (CPV), fatal courses with a mortality of 80 % occur. In these cases, the fast on-site identification of the pathogen is inevitable.

Test Procedure and Interpretation

Canine coronavirus FASTest CCoV Strip test procedureVets can quickly detect a CCoV infection using the FASTest® CCoV Strip. A prognosis for the further progress of disease should be made carefully in case of co-infection with CPV.

To exclude a co-infection with the Canine Parvovirus, the FASTest® PARVO Strip should be carried out in all cases of diarrhoea. Furthermore, with diarrhoea, other pathogens should also be tested (FASTest® GIARDIA Strip, FASTest® ROTA Strip).
