The incidence of naturally occurring antibodies against feline infectious peritonitis in selected cat populations



The incidence of naturally occurring antibodies against feline infectious peritonitis in selected cat populations



Feline Practice 8(1): 43-47



A total of 135 cats from nine catteries in the Pacific Northwest were tested for antibody to infectious peritonitis, with an indirect fluorescent antibody technique. A further 22 cats from the general population and six cats with diagnosed infections were also tested. In six catteries in which deaths due to peritonitis had occurred, 115 (94%) of 123 cats had a positive titre (1:25 and above). In 3 catteries without deaths 10 (83%) of 12 cats were positive.
