Canine CRP is a valuable diagnostic marker for the detection of the acute phase response. Its concentration has been shown to increase rapidly during systemic inflammation in various disorders including viral and bacterial infections, sepsis and pyometra, as well as in surgical trauma. It has been suggested to be useful in monitoring a possible post-surgical infection and of antibiotic treatment response in dogs with bacterial pneumonia. CRP may help reduce the use of unnecessary antibiotics in dogs. (i, ii)
