Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

Available Testing Options

Canine Influenza

Canine Respiratory Panel: A PCR panel that tests for many of the common causes of canine respiratory disease, including Influenza A, Mycoplasma spp., Bordetella bronchiseptica, Canine Adenovirus-2, Canine Herpesvirus-1, Canine Distemper virus, Canine Parainfluenza virus-3, Canine Respiratory Coronavirus and Canine Coronavirus. 

Universal Canine Influenza A Panel: This PCR panel tests for all Influenza A subtypes including the older canine H3N8 strain and the new H3N2 strain. However, to identify the subtype of the influenza virus identified in the sample, influenza gene sequencing could be completed: see below.

Canine Influenza Gene Sequencing: Sequencing can be requested on samples that are PCR positive for the Universal Influenza Panel.  Sequencing will differentiate between the previously common H3N8 and the new H3N2 subtypes.  It will also subtype any new or emerging subtypes.

Dairy Metabolic Profile

KSVDL now offers a panel of tests to assess transition cow health and management programs.

The panel includes: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, NEFA and BHBA.  The appropriate sample is serum submitted in a red-top tube (serum separator tubes are not recommended).
