Coulter is coming out with (came out?) some reagents which may help
you.  Their new product line is known as the Cell Probe Reagents.  One
of these reagents (as I understand it) is e-coli labeled with PE-Cy5 (I
think).  They have a number of other reagents, one of which measures
oxidative burst.  This reagent is rhodamine labeled.  I was told that I
could use these reagents in parallel to measure phagocytosis in humans. 
I don't know if they work in dogs and/or cats.  I have a lot of
experience using the reagent for oxidative burst (it works well), but I
have not used the e-coli reagent.  

I hope this helps you!
