Seroprevalence study of feline coronavirus in owned and feral cats in Sydney, Australia



Seroprevalence study of feline coronavirus in owned and feral cats in Sydney, Australia



Australian Veterinary Journal 84(3): 74-81



Objectives: (i) To establish the seroprevalence of Feline Coronavirus (FCoV) infection in two defined groups of cats in Sydney: owned and feral cats; (ii) to identify factors associated with an increased risk of infection with FCoV; and (iii) to establish the seroprevalence and FCoV antibody titres of owned cats with immunohistochemically confirmed feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). Design: Prospective multi-institutional cross sectional study.
