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)


, : 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

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.
