WHAT WE VACCINATE AGAINST:
Feline herpesvirus (FHV) is a contagious virus often implicated in ‘cat flu’. Symptoms primarily include conjunctivitis, sneezing, nasal discharge with occasional inappetence.
Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a more severe contagious virus also implicated in ‘cat flu’. Symptoms are generally more serious than with FHV and may include oral/tongue ulceration, severe inappetence and eye issues.
Feline Panleukopaenia Virus (Feline Parvo) is a very contagious gastrointestinal disease. Symptoms include depression, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. This disease can be life threatening, particularly in younger cats.
Chlamydia is a bacteria that is often implicated in bouts of ‘cat flu’ as a secondary invader. It can extend the duration of ‘cat flu’ and complicates treatment options on occasion.
