Product Instruction
Storage & Shelf-Life
At 2~30℃, out of sun light & moisture, 24 months

Test Procedure
1. Collect a freshly excreted stool sample with a cotton swab, or take a sample directly from the rectum. If screening for rotavirus in animals without diarrhea, use rectal sampling. Dry samples are not recommended; it often results in false positives due to excessive dry sample collection.
2. Insert the swab to the test tube immediately. Spin the swab until the reagent mix with the sample (not less than 10 times). Squeeze the swab on the inner tube wall to squeeze out the liquid.
3. Put the test card on the flat table, absorb the supernatant and add 5 drop into the sample well carefully.
4. The liquid will flow the screening hole, if not, please softly squeeze the area between sample well and screening hole.
5. Stand for 10-15mins at room temperature and read the result. The result after 15 minutes is invalid.

Interpretation of Results
Positive: line C&T appear
Negative: only line C appear
Invalid: line T&C does not appear or only the line T appear.

    Trivia questions : What is feline parvovirus?

    Feline parvovirus

    Feline fever, also known as feline panleukopenia and feline infectious enteritis, is an acute high-contact infectious disease in cats.

    Feline panleukopenia symptoms

    Most young cats are acutely ill, their body temperature rises above 40 °C, and they vomit. Many cats show no symptoms, die suddenly, and some may show symptoms of spinal ataxia.
    Most cats over 6 months have a subacute clinical condition. First, they have fever to about 40 °C, and then fall to normal temperature after 1-2 days. After 3-4 days, the body temperature rises again, that is, biphasic fever.
    Sick cat is insane, anorexia, refractory vomiting, vomit is yellow-green, sticky secretions in mouth and eyes, nose, and thick stools. When diarrhea occurs, it means that the animal is in the late stage of disease, blood in the stool, severe dehydration, Anemia, severe death.

    Feline panleukopenia diagnosis

    A preliminary diagnosis can be made based on medical history, clinical symptoms and epidemic characteristics, and laboratory tests are still needed to confirm the diagnosis.
    The diagnosis is based on the number of white blood cells. At the same time, biochemical indicators and virus tests can be performed. The most common tests for virus tests include stool, intestines, omental lymph nodes, lungs, and anorexia.

    Feline panleukopenia incubation period

    Feline distemper incubation period is 2-9 days. Clinical symptoms are related to age and viral virulence.

    How is feline panleukopenia transmitted

    Feline parvovirus is transmitted through direct contact with feces and indirectly after contamination of the environment or objects (for example, in food utensils, beauty equipment, bedding, floors, clothes or hands). Cats infected with FPV can continue to excrete the virus for at least six weeks after infection, and the virus can also be transmitted by dogs.
    During viremia for about a week, the feces, urine, and various secretions of sick animals contained the virus. Contaminated food, utensils, and clothing can cause disease transmission, mainly through the mouth, and can also be transmitted through droplets. The detox period of the rehabilitation cat can last from months to a year. In addition to horizontal transmission, vertical transmission to the fetus has been identified in pregnant cats. Since viremia occurs in sick animals for more than 5 days, it is speculated that transmission by blood-sucking insects such as fleas is also possible.

    Feline panleukopenia virus

    Feline panleukopenia virus life cycle

    Feline panleukopenia virus can proliferate in cultures of cat kidney, lung, testis, spleen, heart, diaphragm, adrenal gland, intestine, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, of which the cells of the previous three organs are more commonly used. In addition to cat cells, it can proliferate in tissue cells derived from mink and ferret. As with other viruses of this genus, the virus must be inoculated before the cells form a monolayer in order to achieve the purpose of large-scale virus proliferation.
    Parvoviruses are particularly dangerous because they can survive long-term (up to several years) in the environment and are resistant to many disinfectants.

    Feline panleukopenia treatment

    Treatment can be specific and symptomatic
    Specific therapy
    Cat feline plague monoclonal antibody is injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously, 2 ml per kilogram of body weight, usually once a day, if it is very serious, it can be beaten 2 times a day, up to 3 times in a row.
    Using cat recombinant interferon, 300,000 to 500,000 units per kilogram of body weight.

    Symptomatic therapy
    Antiemetic: When vomiting occurs, fast and water should be avoided. Metoclopramide injection is 0.15 ~ 0.25 ml per kilogram of body weight, twice a day, intramuscularly or subcutaneously.
    Anti-inflammatory: 10,000 units of gentamicin per kilogram of body weight or 50,000 to 100,000 units of kanamycin per kilogram of body weight, twice daily, intramuscularly or subcutaneously.
    Antipyretic: Chaihu injection 0.3 ml per kilogram of body weight, twice a day.
    Hemostasis: Vitamin K3 injection 0.3 ml per kilogram of body weight, twice a day, intramuscularly.
    Rehydration: When dehydration or vomiting occurs, 5 to 10 ml of 25% glucose, 5 ml of 5% sodium bicarbonate, 30 to 50 ml of compound normal saline, mixed intravenous injection.
    Diet: It is recommended to feed a small amount of easily digestible, low-fiber, low-fat foods 3 to 6 times a day. Prescription foods for acute gastroenteritis can also be used. Gradually increase the amount of food over several days to meet the needs of the animal.

    Feline panleukopenia prevention

    The only effective prevention of cat fever is to produce cat fever antibodies through vaccine injection. If the cat has not been vaccinated, first disinfect all the virus disinfectant in domestic pets for one week, and then keep it in a cage to prevent it from contacting other cats. The owner can’t contact other cats, wait for a week after breeding, go to the pet hospital for vaccination.

    Feline panleukopenia vaccine

    Efficient vaccines are available and all cats and kittens should be vaccinated (including indoor cats only). The modified live vaccine should not be used in immunosuppressed pregnant queens or cats, in which case an inactivated (killed) vaccine is recommended. Controlling the spread of FPV depends on vaccination and good management practices, including disinfection (use of appropriate disinfectants) and the use of quarantine procedures.

    Summary :

    The prevention of feline panleukopenia virus is better than treatment. Once the incidence of mortality is extremely high, the cost of treatment is also quite high.
    The Feline Distemper Test Kit provided by BALLYA can effectively detect whether cats have feline panleukopenia or carry feline panleukopenia virus. This kit is easy to operate, and the detection time is short and the accuracy is high. Get to know the cat's physical condition for a while and take appropriate measures in time.
