Abstract

Feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1) infection, but not necessarily chronic or recurrent disease, is common throughout domestic cat populations worldwide. Knowledge of a few essential virological facts permits practitioners to provide appropriate advice to owners of individual pet cats infected with this virus and to assist in the management of shelters and other multicat households in which the virus is enzootic. This article discusses pathogenesis, diagnostic techniques, and clinical signs considered characteristic of infection with FHV-1. Treatment options are considered under the broad categories of supportive care, antiviral agents, and adjunctive therapies.
