Bioguard Offers Canine Leishmania Ab Single and Combo tests

Image description

Canine leishmaniasis is a zoonotic disease caused by Leishmania infantum and is transmitted by female phlebotomine sand flies primarily between animals and secondarily to humans. Clinical signs may be present from three months to several years after dogs become infected. Symptoms may include sores on the skin, peeling, ulcers, loss of weight, bald patches, conjunctivitis, blindness, nasal discharge, muscular atrophy, inflammation, swelling, and organ failure, including mild heart attacks.

In the idea of providing more flexibility in screening the disease to all veterinarians around the globe, Bioguard has developed rapid tests in detecting Leishmania Ab with formats of single rapid test and two rapid combination tests, including Leishmania Ab/Anaplasma Ab combo and VLabs 4LX (heartworm Ag/Leishmania Ab/E.canis Ab/ Anaplasma Ab).

Bioguard “Science for Companion Animal care” is a global animal health diagnostic company dedicated to providing the latest technology innovation and advanced manufacturing techniques to the animal health industry.

Global Pet Food Safety Standard Revised to Support Trade

BRUSSELS — The Global Alliance of Pet Food Associations (GAPFA) has announced the publication of a new, science-based international standard for pet food production safety to help streamline international trade.

The association worked with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) to revise its international standards, which now include science-based recommendations for ensuring safety with certain cooking practices for dry pet food and heat-treated poultry products in hermetically sealed containers, including those used in pet food formulations.

These revisions were published in the 2021 edition of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code, which sets international standards for animal health, welfare and veterinary public health. These standards have been adopted by all 182 members of OIE, according to GAPFA.

“With this new revised OIE standard, countries around the world gain the guidelines and understanding of how pet food can be safely transported and traded across the globe,” said Fausto Fiorini, chairman of GAPFA’s Food Safety and Trade Facilitation Workstream and manager of regulatory and scientific affairs for Nestlé Purina PetCare’s Latin American and Carribbean operations. “One key mission of GAPFA is to promote global standards for pet food, and we welcome this important step that can support people, pets and public health.”

The immune system is very important to protect the animals from harmful infections. Unfortunately, sometimes, the immune system malfunctions and starts causing disease, including destruction of cells and tissues, or inflammation and fever.

 “Autoimmune” essentially means a disease in which the body starts to attack itself. Many diseases fall into this category, and five common conditions including immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, systemic lupus erythematosus, immune-mediated polyarthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and keratoconjunctivitis sicca are introduced, including pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
