The EHRLICHIA-ELISA DOG is an enzyme immunoassay for detecting IgG antibodies to Ehrlichia canis in serum and plasma samples from dogs.

Ehrlichia canis is the causative agent of ehrlichiosis - a tick-borne infectious disease of dogs, usually carried by the brown dog tick.

The acute disease is characterized by high fever, lethargy, anorexia, lymphadenomegaly, splenomegaly, and hemorrhagic phenomena; inflammatory oedematous and haemorrhagic ophthalmological symptoms up to blindness are possible. For unclear reasons, chronic disease phases, even with marked acute symptoms, may occur. Pale gums and mucous membranes, weakness, bleeding, weight loss as well as hypoalbuminemia, hyperglobulinaemia,  hypergammaglobulinaemia and slight elevations of ALAT and ALP are usually observed.
