What is FHV1 Feline Herpes Virus ?
The Feline Herpes Virus provoke a ubiquitous disease. It is a major cause of upper respiratory infection in cats. The main symptoms are ocular secretions, nasal secretions, conjunctivitis and pharyngitis.
The virus is transmitted by salivary contact or by nasal and ocular secretions. The cats therefore transmit the virus when they share the same bowls and litter.
The virus remains permanently in the cat even if it has no more symptoms because the virus persists in the nerve cells.
