Manage complications caused by Feline Herpesvirus (FHV-1) infections
Feline Herpesvirus (FHV-1) infection is a common cat disease characterised by sneezing, inflammation of the nose and eyes, corneal ulcers and fever. Surveys have revealed that up to 97% of cats harbour this virus. The virus remains in the animal after initial exposure and lies dormant in a latent state in nerve tissue near the brain. During periods of stress the virus can travel down the nerves and injure the cornea in one or both eyes. Some conditions that can cause stress in cats include: the introduction of a new cat or dog to the household, relocating the cat or even leaving the cat when going away on holiday.
