TVMDL compiled diagnostic panels to assist clients in complete diagnostic testing for calves 60 days of age or younger suffering from diarrhea. This panel targets the most common bacterial, viral, and protozoal causes of calf diarrhea. The client still has the ability to add or delete tests as desired.
Tests included in this panel: fecal culture, salmonella PCR, salmonella serovar typing at NVSL if isolated, E. coli PCR for toxin and virulence gene identification if isolated, PCR multiplex for bovine coronavirus, bovine rotavirus A, and cryptosporidium. Antibiotic susceptibility testing can be requested for an additional fee before or during testing. Clostridium perfringens typing PCR can be requested for an additional fee if isolated.
