What is the Canine CRP assay used for?

What is Canine CRP?

C – reactive protein (CRP) is an acute phase protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation, infection and tissue injury.

Elevated concentration levels of CRP occur much earlier compared to other acute phase reactants, usually within 4 to 6 hours. This rapid response to trauma or infection is what distinguishes the features of CRP. In addition, CRP levels return to normal quickly at the end of an acute episode making CRP useful for both the detection of acute inflammation episodes as well as monitoring CRP treatment.  For more information on inflammatory episodes in canines, please click here [external link].

What is the Canine CRP assay used for?

As in humans, CRP is used as a marker of inflammatory activity, but with the Randox Canine CRP test, CRP can be tested in dogs as opposed to humans and uses the same high-quality materials as our human assay.  CRP in canines has been useful in determining the severity of the inflammation as CRP in healthy dogs is present in low concentrations (5 mg/dl) but can elevate to 600 mg/dl depending on the severity of the inflammation.  CRP can be useful in determining if a dog is pregnant as CRP levels increase to 80 mg/dl around four to five weeks after ovulation and return to normal five weeks later. Canine CRP is also useful as a treatment-independent marker such as treatment for inflammation using steroids or antibiotics.  Canine CRP is commonly used to diagnose viral and bacterial infections and infectious diseases including:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Neoplasia
  • Steroid-responsive meningitis arteritis
  • Valvular disease
  • Parvoviral enteritis
  • Nasal disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Cystitis
  • Other possible uses for CRP testing are assessing tissue injury and as a marker for naturally occurring renal disease.

The Randox Canine CRP reagent is used as a marker of inflammatory activity for the in vitro determination of CRP in canines.
