Canine monocytic ehrlichiosis is an important tick-borne disease caused by the Gram negative bacteria Ehrlichia canis. The infection course is divided into three phases: acute, subclinical and chronic. Common clinical signs include elevated body temperature, depression, lethargy, anorexia, bleeding tendencies and multisystemic signs.
Ag Ehrlichia canis
Ag Ehrlichia canis is a formol-inactivated suspension of cells infected with the bacteria Ehrlichia canis, which is used for anti-E. canis specific antibody titration by indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) test.
Sample Type: Anticoagulated whole blood, serum or plasma | Test Time: Approximately 10 minutes
