Herbal extracts as a source of compounds with an antiviral activity has attracted significant attention recently.

Lysine is commonly used as a treatment, however in a systematic reviewwhere the authors investigated all clinical trials with cats as well as in vitro studies, concluded that lysine supplementation is likely not effective for the treatment or prevention of feline herpesvirus 1 infection. Corticosteroids or azathioprine may be used for polyarthritis.

Proceedings of the North American Veterinary Conference. Cxlicivirus calicivirus FCV is a virus of the family Caliciviridae that causes disease in cats. Specific tests include virus culturepolymerase chain reactionand immunohistochemical staining. Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. These usually resolve within four to seven days, but secondary bacterial infections can cause the persistence of clinical signs for weeks.

Latent or subclinical infections often become clinical when the cat is stressed, such as at the time of adoption. Inactivated vaccine does calivivirus, but it causes more local inflammation and possibly predisposes the cat to vaccine-associated sarcoma.

FHV-1 also has a predilection for corneal epithelium, resulting in corneal ulcersoften pinpoint or dendritic in shape.

However, FCV is very contagious, and latently infected cats will continue to shed viruses, so complete control is difficult. Most household disinfectants will inactivate FHV The first one [12] showed that Theaflavin and calicjvirus derivatives but not Kaempferol significally inhibited entry of FCV into cells.


Views Read Edit View history. FVR has a two- to five-day incubation period. This page was last edited on 10 Novemberat The other important cause of feline respiratory disease is feline calicivirus. The great variability of clinical signs in individual cases of FCV is related to the relative virulence of different strains of the virus. Antibiotics, corticosteroids, and felinno extractions all have been used with varying success. It is also commonly referred to as feline influenzafeline coryzaand feline pneumonia but, as these terms describe other very distinct collections of respiratory symptoms, they are misnomers for the condition.

Viremia the presence of the virus in the blood is rare. There are no specific antiviral drugs in common use at this time for FVR, although one study has shown that ganciclovirPMEDAPand cidofovir hold promise for treatment.

Retrieved from ” https: Diagnosis of FVR is usually by clinical signs, especially corneal ulceration. Being an RNA virusFCV has a high elasticity of its genomewhich makes it more adaptable to environmental pressures.

In addition to stomatitis, calicivlrus cats may develop a polyarthritisboth probably immune-mediated through immune complex deposition. From Wikipedia, clicivirus free encyclopedia. Antibiotics are used for secondary bacterial infections, and immune modulators, such as lymphocyte T-cell immune modulatorhave been used for immune support. Stress and use of corticosteroids precipitate shedding. Causing one-half of the respiratory diseases in cats, [1] FVR is the most important of these diseases and is found worldwide.

Quarantine is best for control of Caliciviirus in catteries and kennels. Stomatitis is very difficult to treat. Conjunctivitis and corneal ulcers are treated with topical antibiotics for secondary bacterial infection.

Infected cats usually shed the virus for two weeks. Feline viral rhinotracheitis FVR is an upper respiratory or callcivirus infection of cats caused by feline herpesvirus 1of the family Herpesviridae.


Feline viral rhinotracheitis

Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine 4th ed. Journal of Veterinary Medical Science. FVR is transmitted through direct contact only. Antibiotics are commonly used to prevent secondary bacterial infection. It is one of the caljcivirus important viral causes of respiratory infection in cats, the other being feline herpesvirus.

It can be transmitted through the air, orally, and on fomites. An outbreak of VS-FCV at a humane society in Missouri in led to the euthanasia of the entire cat population almost cats to contain it.

The Merck Veterinary Manual. FVR is very contagious and can cause severe disease, including death velino pneumonia in young kittens.

Feline calicivirus

The presence of stomatitis may indicate FCV. Early in the course of the disease, histological analysis of cells from the tonsils, nasal tissue, or nictitating membrane third eyelid may show inclusion bodies a collection of viral particles within the nucleus of infected cells.

FCV replicates in the oral and respiratory tissues, and is secreted in salivafecesurineand respiratory secretions. Vesiviruses Cat diseases Animal virology. Less commonly, glomerulonephritis can develop in chronic cases secondary to immune complex deposition.

Felono, usually after the age of three years, FCV infections are mild or asymptomatic. This page was last edited on 19 Julyat The virus is shed in saliva and eye and nasal secretions, and can also be spread by fomites.
