Feline calicivirus

Feline calicivirus is a viral disease caused by a virus of the Caliciviridae family. The disease affects the upper respiratory tract and causes erosions in the oral cavity. It is a very common disease in the cat population, affecting mainly young individuals. It is most commonly spread by direct contact with a sick animal. Classical viremia is not typical of this disease, therefore conjunctival, nasal and mucous membrane swabs are suitable samples for virus detection by RT-PCR.
