“…Despite testing positive serologically, three dogs from the asymptomatic group, including a three-to-four-month-old puppy, tested negatively for all of the administered tests. Possible explanations include false seropositivity 40 , cross-reactivity with other diseases 41 or the presence of a pre-patent infection 42,43 . In the case of the puppy, the positive serology might also be attributable to the presence of maternal antibodies 44 .…”

“…ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) represents a simple and rapid method for the survey of this canine infection (Lima et al, 2005), allowing the processing of a considerable number of samples in a short time interval (Maia & Campino, 2008).…”
