Chronic Feline Herpes

Rhinotracheitis, is caused by the feline herpes 1 virus. But stressed cats with over-taxed immune systems malnutrition and the high virus exposure of group-living sometimes become much sicker with the disease and are more likely to become chronic carriers of the virus once the initial infection passes. The feline herpesvirus (FHV) is responsible for nasty respiratory infections in cats, and the disease can become chronic just like its human-specific counterpart.

All cats can become infected with FVR infections, but infection tends to be more severe in young animals or animals that have another chronic disease. Feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) is an upper respiratory or pulmonary infection of cats caused by feline herpesvirus 1, of the family Herpesviridae. In chronic nasal and sinus disease of cats, FHV-1 may play more of an initiating role than an ongoing cause.

Unfortunately, the diagnostic tests that are currently available to definitively diagnose a herpes infection are unreliable. This is particularly true for chronic cases. Feline herpesvirus (FHV, FHV-1) is a highly contagious virus that is one of the major causes of upper respiratory infections (URIs) or cat flu in cats. Some cats may develop chronic symptoms such as chronic rhinosinusitis (sneezing and nasal discharge).

In the meantime, I’m wondering if you’ve successfully treated chronic herpes virus in your cat, or any of the conditions described here. Should I ask my regular vet to put her on kitty Prozac? Another concern is that the constant shuttling to and from the vet is only increasing her stress (she’s been to the vet seven times in two months-on all of these occasions I’ve called the vet offices asking what to do, and they’ve urged me to bring her in). Dr. Biros: Feline ocular herpesvirus, or FHV-1, is a very common virus in cats. Chronic ocular surface inflammation from one cause or another can appear very similar. Tear production can be reduced leading to a chronically dry, uncomfortable eye. Interaction of acute feline herpesvirus-1 and chronic feline immunodeficiency virus infections in experimentally infected specific pathogen free cats. Feline herpesvirus (FHV-1) is a common cause of eye and upper respiratory infection in the cat. Repeated or chronic infections have been associated with diseases such as dry eye, symblepharon (adhesion of the conjunctiva to itself or to the cornea) , corneal sequestrum (an abnormal brown plaque formation on the cornea) , and possibly eosinophilic keratitis (an immune-mediated condition of the cornea). Fortunately, less than 45 of adult cats with latent herpesvirus infection develop recurrent ocular disease such as conjunctivitis. In most cases, herpesvirus conjunctivitis is self-limiting and will resolve within two weeks.

The Feline Herpes Virus Also Attacks Owners’ Sanity

In severe cases, dehydration, debilitation and death can occur. Most infections are believed to involve feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1) , feline calicivirus (FCV) andor Chlamydia. Jay’s question: I have a 1-year-old male cat with a chronic upper respiratory infection. Heather Oxford, DVM: Your kitty likely has feline herpes virus, otherwise known as rhinotracheitis virus, but don’t worry – you can’t get it from him. Feline Upper Respiratory Infections (URI) is a collective term for infectious diseases of the up-per respiratory tract and the mucous membranes of cats. Feline Herpes viruses (FHV) have a low environmental stability. Feline herpes virus is a common disease in cats, causing upper respiratory infection, conjunctivitis (inflammation of the pink tissue surrounding the eye) and in some cases inflammation or ulceration of the cornea. This is similar to people who have recurrent cold sores, which are caused by herpes simplex virus. X-rays are also helpful in determining changes in the nasal cavity, especially those due to chronic infections. Many cats have chronic problems with conjunctivitis (inflammation of the eye membranes). In cats, Herpes is an upper respiratory virus (not an STD) ; it’s also called rhinotracheitis and is one of the components of the combination upper respiratorypanleukopenia (feline distemper) vaccine for kittens. About 30 of FIV+ cats with infection-related problems experience chronic upper respiratory infections 1. This might also be related to feline herpes. the jury is still out. Many vets appear to not think that chronic use of antibiotics is good. as the kitty cat gets olders, the immune system and possible tolerance for stress gets higher.
