trūRapid Anaplasma: rapid test for detection of Anaplasma phagocytophilum and platys antibodies
trūRapid Anaplasma is a rapid test for detection of Anaplasma phagocytophilum and platys antibodies in canine serum, plasma, or anticoagulated whole blood.
Anaplasmosis is a bacterial disease that, in a dog, comes in two forms. Anaplasma phagocytophilum infects neutrophils (this is the form that is also found in people). The second type of Anaplasma organism, Anaplasma platys, infects a dog’s platelets. Anaplasmosis occurs worldwide in a wide number of mammals including dogs, cats, and people. Rodents are thought to be the reservoir for Anaplasma phagocytophilum while dogs are theorized to be the reservoir for Anaplasma platys. In both cases, while mammals are the reservoir, ticks are the means of transmission. Symptoms usually begin within one to two weeks of the initial tick bite and transmission. As the two main anaplasmosis organisms infect different types of cells, the symptoms vary depending on which organism has infected the dog. Anaplasma phagocytophilium is the most common form of anaplasmosis. Reported signs include lameness and joint pain, lethargy, inappetence, fever. Anaplasma platys infects the platelets, therefore, signs of this form of anaplasmosis are related to the body’s inability to properly stop bleeding and include bruising and petechia as well as nosebleeds.
