Cats Disease

MacskabetegségekWe tried to describe the meaning of the next abbreviations simply: FcoV, FIP, FIV, FeLV.

FcoV (Feline Coronavirus): or as we can hear in the vernacular, simply coronavirus. It is usually asymptomatic, it can cause mild diarrhea. The virus is dangerous because it is able to mutate so various incurable diseases may occur in the animal. A large amount of virus in the faeces, saliva or excreted, so healthy instances are easy to be infected too.

FIP (Feline infectious peritonitis): This infectious peritonitis in cats is an incurable, fatal disease. The coronavirus is created when there is a mutation in the FIP. This mutated virus antibodies that attack the blood precipitated the cat’s internal organs. Basically there are two types, wet and dry FIP. The wet FIP in the abdomen and the chest cavity fluid builds up, from which the abdomen is enlarged and the animal’s breathing becomes difficult. Typical symptoms are fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, diarrhea, or even the cat can get yellow. The dry FIP produces similar symptoms, but do not build up in body fluids. The dry version of the orbital at more cats shows neurological symptoms. For example it is difficult to walk or get up, and over time the cat canparalise. In addition, loss of vision may occur. Vaccine providing real protection for the time is unavailable..

FIV: This is an immune deficiency disease and it is called cat AIDS. In Largest percentage exit and wandering tom-cats are threatened when mating season, or simply be fighting with other cats in the defense of the territory. The most FIV is saliva or sexually transmitted. It is important to note that it is dangerous only for cats and not for people. As it goes with humans the AIDS infected person becomes vector, but it is not sure that the cat becomes ill and produces symptoms. A cat with weakened immune systems is susceptible to viral and bacterial diseases and there is often a fatal outcome of the disease. No vaccine is currently in circulation.

FeLV: This is called a cat’s leucosis. Practically, the virus of feline body induced prevents healthy cells from dividing. It infects with different body fluids, such as the eyes and nasal secretions, or through the urine and saliva. This disease is the biggest risk for the outdoor and wandering cats. The disease has no cure, but there is a possibility to vaccinate to cats at the age of 8-12 weeks, that is the first time after 4 weeks, and then be repeated annually. The vaccine is not 100% protection, but can significantly reduce the likelihood of illness.

Of course, there are numerous cat illnesses, but you can meet a medical certificate for these diseases at the breeders the most often. It is important to note that there might be a big difference between tests and tests because of a variety of test methods reliability. Generally speaking, the reliability of serological tests and DNA samples from saliva, hair or took are insufficient. The results of the rapid test are questionable. FoCV or FIP case study gives more reliable results in the faeces samples, but we also have a large role to the time of sampling was the degree of virus-experienced.

Only the DNA analisys on the blood and serology can give 100% security!
