Canine Parvovirus (CPV-2) Antibody Titre

Parvovirus infection is a serious, highly infectious viral disease of dogs.  Vaccination is effective at preventing infection and vaccination programs have been developed to thoroughly protect dogs.  This test is used to assess if vaccinal immunity directed against canine parvovirus is present and sufficient.  A positive test indicates a haemagglutination inhibition titre of 1:80 or greater.  Dogs with a negative test are not protected from infection but they may be protected from clinical disease since anamnestic antibody or cell mediated immunity may be protective.
