Why test for Adenovirus Type 2?
Dog breeders should test for CAV-2, a common cause of respiratory disease in dogs. Symptoms can be severe in young puppies and older dogs. Testing can help identify exposed dogs, allowing breeders to prevent spread. Vaccines may be used to protect dogs from infection. Breeding decisions may also be informed by testing, as carriers may pass the virus to offspring. Working with a vet can help develop a vaccination protocol.
What exactly is Adenovirus Type 2?
Adenovirus type 2 (CAV-2) is a virus that infects dogs and can cause respiratory disease. It is a member of the adenovirus family, which includes several other types of viruses that can infect a range of animals, including humans.
CAV-2 is highly contagious and can spread through contact with infected dogs, contaminated objects, and even through the air. The virus can cause symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge, and fever. In severe cases, CAV-2 can lead to pneumonia, which can be life-threatening, especially in young puppies and older dogs with weaker immune systems.
Fortunately, vaccines are available for CAV-2 and can be effective in preventing infection. Vaccination is particularly important for dogs that are regularly exposed to other dogs, such as those in kennels or dog shows.
Testing for adenovirus type 2 can help breeders identify infected dogs and take steps to prevent the spread of the virus. It can also help breeders make informed breeding decisions and work with their veterinarian to develop a vaccination protocol that helps protect their dogs from this dangerous virus.
