Molecular Epidemiology of Canine Parvovirus, Europe
TLDR
Molecular method assessment of the distribution of the CPV variants in Europe showed that the new variant CPV-2c is widespread in Europe and that the viruses are distributed in different countries. Expand
Feline infectious peritonitis. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management
TLDR
The clinical picture of FIP is highly variable, depending on the distribution of the vasculitis and pyogranulomatous lesions, and there are no controlled studies to prove any beneficial effect of corticosteroids. Expand
Persistence and transmission of natural type I feline coronavirus infection.
TLDR
To examine the mode of natural transmission and persistence of feline coronavirus (FCoV), FCoV strains shed by domestic cats were investigated over periods of up to 7 years and the consensus partial S sequence of isolates recovered from persistently infected cats at time intervals spanning years was generally conserved. Expand
Feline immunodeficiency. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management
TLDR
Cats infected with FIV may live as long as uninfected cats, with appropriate management, and asymptomatic FIV-infected cats should be neutered to avoid fighting and virus transmission. Expand
Sequence analysis of MHC DRB alleles in domestic cats from the United Kingdom
TLDR
Analysis of FLA-DRB exon 2 polymorphisms in a cohort of 33 British cats by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and clonal sequence analysis reveals a similar pattern of MHC polymorphism to that seen in other mammals, with three regions of hypervariability. Expand
Feline herpesvirus infection. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management
TLDR
Feline herpesvirus infections cause acute rhinitis and conjunctivitis, usually accompanied by fever, depression and anorexia, and in most cats, FHV remains latent after recovery, and they become lifelong virus carriers. Expand
Feline leukaemia. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management
TLDR
Feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) is a retrovirus that may induce depression of the immune system, anaemia and/or lymphoma, and less common signs are immune-mediated disease, chronic enteritis, reproductive disorders and peripheral neuropathies. Expand
Long-term impact on a closed household of pet cats of natural infection with feline coronavirus, feline leukaemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus
TLDR
A closed household of 26 cats in which feline coronavirus, feline leukaemia virus and feline immunodeficiency virus were endemic was observed for 10 years, finding that the FeW infection was self-limiting, however, FeLv had the greatest impad on mortality. Expand
Feline calicivirus infection. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management.
TLDR
Feline caliciviral disease is a highly variable virus that can persist in the environment for about 1 month and is resistant to many common disinfectants. Expand
Recombinant Canine Coronaviruses in Dogs, Europe
TLDR
Subtype IIb originates from recombination with porcine transmissible gastroenteritis virus, which causes vomiting and diarrhoea in women and vomiting in men. Expand
