Fecal shedding of feline coronavirus in adult cats and kittens in an Abyssinian cattery



Fecal shedding of feline coronavirus in adult cats and kittens in an Abyssinian cattery



Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 215(7): 948-951



15 adult cats and 18 kittens from a single cattery were used to determine patterns of faecal shedding of feline coronavirus (FCV). Blood and faecal samples were collected from adult cats every other month for 13 months. Serum FCV antibody titres were measured using an indirect immunofluorescence assay. A reverse-transcriptase, nested polymerase chain reaction assay was used to detect FCV in faeces.
