Biogal-Galed Labs Announces Today the USDA Approval of the Canine VacciCheck.
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.
The World Small Animal Veterinary Association states that vaccines should not be given needlessly, as they may cause adverse reactions.
This test can help determine if a dog requires additional vaccination, and may save a dog an unnecessary vaccination. It is especially useful when making a decision about vaccinating an animal with unknown vaccination history, or for determining if puppies have received immunity from vaccination.
What is unique about Biogal's ImmunoComb(R) Canine VacciCheck is that it gives the veterinarian the opportunity of being able to quantitatively check for all the 3 core vaccines. This is all done in one test as a follow up to vaccination, in the vet's clinic or the veterinary lab, with an answer received within 21 minutes.
"We at Biogal sincerely hope that this tool will assist in reducing over vaccination" said Amos Gershony, Biogal's General Manager.
