Feline coronavirus in the intestinal contents of cats with feline infectious peritonitis



Feline coronavirus in the intestinal contents of cats with feline infectious peritonitis



Veterinary Record 139(21): 522-523



Gut contents from 33 cats, collected on the day of death , were examined by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. 22 of the 28 cats with natural feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) infections were positive for feline coronavirus (FCoV) including all the cats with non-effusive FIP. Samples from a control SPF cat and other cats with unrelated clinical disease were negative. One seropositive cat with cholangitis but not FIP was also positive.
