Investigation of the spectrum of viral causative agents within the scope of the upper respiratory disease complex in cats. Treatment experiments with the antiherpesvirus agent aciclovir (Zovirax)






Kleintierpraxis 39(2): 93...106

Investigation of the spectrum of viral causative agents within the scope of the upper respiratory disease complex in cats. Treatment experiments with the antiherpesvirus agent aciclovir (Zovirax)

In studies of 166 cats presented with signs of upper respiratory tract disease (URD) between July 1990 and April 1992, 26 (15.7%) clinically diseased cats were found to excrete feline herpesvirus (FHV) while calicivirus (FCV) was isolated from 35 (21.1%) cats. Infections by the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV, 20 of 130) and the feline leukaemia virus (FeLV, 11 of 130) were detected by commercial ELISA.
