The diagnosis of AR is based on the evaluation of clinical signs in live animals and in the post mortem identification of lesions in the nasal turbinates and nasal septum. In addition, laboratory diagnostic tests are used to identify the presence of Pasteurella multocida and Bordetella bronchiseptica.
