Bioguard Canine Blood pathogen Test result compare to the PCR test result
Image description

Canine vector-borne diseases (CVBDs) is one of a group of globally distributed and rapidly spreading illnesses that are transmitted by vectors, which include mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and phlebotomine sandflies. These vectors can carry infective pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and protozoa, which can be transferred from one host (carrier) to another. 

In addition to their veterinary importance,some CVBD-causing pathogens are of major zoonotic concern, since they can also be transmitted to humans as well. The CVBDs represent a varied and complex group of diseases, among them, are Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Dirofilariasis (Heartworm), Ehrlichiosis, Lyme. Many of these diseases can be deadly or cause serious clinical conditions in dogs.


Since prevention is so far the best approach against the CVBD’s, Bioguard has developed the canine Blood pathogen test which is a highly sensitive and specific test for the qualitative detection of antibodies to Anaplasma, Lyme or B. Gibsoni, Ehrlichia canis, and Dirofilaria immitis (Heartworm) antigens in canine whole blood, serum, or plasma.


A study that compared the VETlabs Canine Blood Pathogen test to PCR shows in 50 samples of VETlab Lyme Ab Test and 172 samples of VETlabs Anaplasma platys Ab Test (2 of the 4 diseases of the test.)

The results are shown as follow:

a. Sample of Lyme


20 Lyme infected-positive specimens sample

30 Lyme non-infected-negative specimens

The statistical analysis demonstrated that Lyme in the VETlabs canine blood pathogen test have 95.00% of Sensitivity and 96.67% Specificity

b. Sample of Anaplasma Platys


74 Anaplasma platys infected-positive specimens

98 Anaplasma platys non-infected-negative specimens

Image description

The statistical analysis demonstrated that Anaplasma platys in the VETlabs canine blood pathogen test have 94.59% Sensitivity and 98.98% Specificity.

Bioguard “Science for Animal care” has developed the VETlabs Canine blood pathogen test to help prevent the spread of CVBD’s in dogs.

The Antibiotic susceptibility test is used to determine which specific antibiotics a particular bacteria or fungus is sensitive to. Most often, this testing complements a Gram stain and culture, the results of which are obtained much sooner.

The Antibiotic test is developed to make veterinarians’ jobs easier by providing a very easy and convenient way to do the antibiotic susceptibility test in their own clinic.
