Respiratory disorders are of major concern for bovidae, given the frequency of such infections and the high number of animals affected.
These infections occur in all countries that practice intensive livestock farming in which large numbers of animals are confined to small areas.
Treatment and diagnosis are both complicated due to the multifactorial character of this diseases etiology.

Viruses and bacteria combined with stress due either to transport in overcrowded vans or dirty or poorly-ventilated stabling, for instance, play a key role in triggering acute respiratory infections.
These infections are particularly common among young animals, although they also affect adult animals.

In most cases the animals that show signs of respiratory ailments harbour several pathogens, some of which may act synergistically.
So, it is generally recognised that viruses are the first pathogens to intervene, whereas bacteria act as second invaders to worsen the animal’s condition.
Shipping fever is a good example of the synergism that can exist between a virus (PI3) and a bacterium, such as Manheimia haemolytica, in the respiratory tract.

BIO K 342 (chromatographic vertical flow immunoassay - strips) can be used to obtain a diagnosis from a minced lung or trachea tissue sample taken from a corps.
It is also possible to use tracheobronchial lavage liquid or, lacking that, nasal fluid to carry out this test.
However, the diagnosis is less reliable than when lung tissue is used. ==Use of the kit== The kit is designed to detect BoHV-1 in Bovine lungs or thacheas

==Reliable Results== The use of monoclonal antibody as conjugate and to capture the virus on the strip ensures excellent specificity and very reliable results.

==Ease-of-Use== *Minimal hands-on-time *Room temperature incubation *Results available in 10 minutes
