Additional file 1: Table S1. Demographics and test results for government working dogs. Serology included testing for anti-T. cruzi antibodies by two rapid immunochromatographic assays, Chagas Stat-Pak® (ChemBio, NY), and Chagas Detect™ Plus Rapid Test (InBios, International, Inc., Seattle, WA), indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) testing at Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (College Station, TX) and a commercially available ELISA, the SNAP 4Dx Plus, which allows for simultaneous detection of canine antibodies to E. canis, E. ewingii, B. burgdorferi, A. phagocytophilum, and A. platys, and to D. immitis antigen. Dogs were also tested for amplification of T, cruzi DNA by real time PCR.
