Calicivirus Felino by kenia pizarro on Prezi

It is one of the two important viral causes of respiratory infection in cats, the other being feline herpesvirus. Diagnosis of FCV is difficult without specific tests, because the calicvirus are similar to other feline respiratory diseases, especially feline viral rhinotracheitis.

Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine 4th ed. FCV replicates in the oral and respiratory tissues, and is secreted in salivafecescalicicirusand respiratory secretions.

Stomatitis is very difficult to treat. Cats on corticosteroids must be monitored carefully for worsening of any upper respiratory infection.

Feline viral rhinotracheitis

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. It can be transmitted through the air, orally, and on fomites. Consultations in Feline Internal Medicine Vol. A Concise Review of Veterinary Virology. The disease is caused by direct viral invasion of epithelium and endothelium and secondary host immune response.


In August, John R. Ulcerative skin disease can also result from FHV-1 infection.

QI06AA08 WHOplus various combination vaccinescalixivirus although it limits or weakens the severity of the disease and may reduce viral sheddingit does not prevent infection with FVR. Other ocular signs of FHV-1 infection include conjunctivitiskeratitiskeratoconjunctivitis sicca decreased tear productionand corneal sequestra.

Feline calicivirus

Conjunctivitis and corneal ulcers are treated with topical antibiotics for secondary bacterial infection. Definitive diagnosis can be done by direct immunofluorescence or fe,ino isolation.

Vesiviruses Cat diseases Animal virology. FVR is transmitted through direct contact only. It also contains a strain of the traditional FCV virus.

However, many healthy cats are subclinical carriers of feline herpes virus, so a positive test for FHV-1 does not necessarily indicate that signs of an upper respiratory tract infection are due to FVR.

Antibiotics are used for secondary bacterial infections, and immune modulators, such as lymphocyte T-cell immune modulatorhave been used for immune support. The presence of stomatitis may indicate FCV. Stomatitis and polyarthritis can develop without any upper respiratory infection signs, but fever and loss of appetite may occur. Corticosteroids or azathioprine may cslicivirus used for polyarthritis. Early in the course of the disease, histological analysis of cells from the calicivrius, nasal tissue, or nictitating membrane third eyelid may show inclusion bodies a collection of viral particles within the nucleus of infected cells.


These usually resolve within four to seven days, but secondary bacterial infections can cause the persistence of clinical signs for weeks. Less commonly, glomerulonephritis can develop in chronic cases secondary to immune complex deposition. Use of serological tests to determine vaccine needs. The Journal of Antibiotics.

Infected cats usually shed the virus for two weeks.

Articles with ‘species’ microformats. FHV-1 also has a predilection for corneal epithelium, resulting in corneal ulcersoften pinpoint or dendritic in shape. Veterinary Virology 2nd ed.

Viral respiratory diseases in cats can be serious, especially in catteries and kennels. It can cause flat-chested kitten syndromebut most evidence for this is anecdotal.
