Leptospirosis is also getting common in urban cities because of leakage in sewage pipes, water logging and accumulation of garbage on roads, making people walking without covered shoes and those walking barefoot, get exposed to infection. Symptoms. Symptoms of leptospirosis include high fever, shivering and headaches. Dogs may develop jaundice. There are several tests for diagnosing leptospirosis, but the two most common ones are the DNA-PCR test and the microscopic agglutination test (MAT). Infection can be diagnosed with either test, but each has weaknesses, and in some situations both tests may be needed to reach a diagnosis. The Leptospirosis diagnosis is done through a variety of leptospira test in the laboratory through several methods. Leptospirosis lab test Include leptospira igm, leptospira antibody test, leptospirosis blood test and leptospirosis rapid test. Some of the most effective and common leptospira tests are: MAT – microscopic agglutination test

International Journal of Microbiology is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical studies on microorganisms and their interaction with hosts and the environment. The journal covers all microbes, including bacteria, fungi, viruses, archaea, and protozoa. Ideally, a combination of serology and organism detection should be used for diagnosis of canine leptospirosis. Serology is the most frequently used diagnostic test for dogs. Acute and convalescent titers may be necessary to confirm a diagnosis; hence, the use of the MAT is preferred over the ELISA.
