The concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP), serum amyloid A, haptoglobin (Hp) and alpha(1)-acid glycoprotein were measured in dogs with clinical signs of nasal disease and compared with those of healthy dogs in order to determine the expression of these proteins in cases of canine nasal disease A significant difference (P<0 001) between the symptomatic group and the control group was found for both CRP and Hp Among the animals with nasal disease, a significant intergroup difference (P<0 05) was found in the expression of Hp between dogs with aspergillosis and those with chronic rhinitis
