KIBBUTZ GALED, Israel, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Biogal announced that the Canine Vaccicheck, an in house titer test kit for Parvo Distemper and Hepatitis, has been successfully registered in Canada. Biogal's distributor in Canada, Aventix Animal Health, was instrumental in gaining registration approval and will be responsible for marketing these kits in Canada.
The Canine VacciCheck kit is intended to be used as a diagnostic tool to evaluate the antibody response to the core vaccination or infection by Infectious Canine Hepatitis, Canine Parvovirus and Canine Distemper Virus.
A high antibody level is associated with immunity to infection (in well dogs) and can also diagnose a dog that is sick with one of these diseases.
Canine VacciCheck has been described by Professor Ronald Schultz as "a cost effective, user friendly and expedient titer test".
Canine VacciCheck is unique, as it quantitatively checks for all 3 core vaccines. This is carried out as a single test in a vet clinic, veterinary lab, animal shelter, with results available in 21 minutes.
For shelter hepatitis, parvo or distemper outbreaks, VacciCheck rapidly and cheaply tests populations that are susceptible to or protected from these diseases. This allows many animals to live, that might otherwise have been euthanized.
"We at Biogal sincerely hope that this tool will assist in reducing over vaccination in Canada," said Amos Gershony, Biogal's General Manager.
