Cat flu is extremely common in cats and is caused by a range of respiratory viruses and can be complicated by secondary bacterial infection. The symptoms associated with cat flu infection can vary from mild to life threatening. Two cat viruses have been associated with cat flu and can occur either alone or in combination, feline calicivirus (FCV) and feline herpes virus (FHV-1). In common with humans, feline herpes virus can become latent in the cat and reactivate at times of stress.
When fed to cats with FHV-1, L-lysine has been shown to be effective in supporting the lessening of the severity of symptoms and reducing viral shedding (or transmission).
Feline herpes virus, one of the most common causes of respiratory infections and eye problems in cats, can be transmitted from cat to cat through discharge from the nose, eyes or mouth and also through litter boxes, water dishes and food. The most common symptoms of FHV-1 in kittens are sneezing and nasal discharge, along with an eye infection and ocular discharge. In cats, the most common symptoms are chronic eye infections or recurrent corneal ulcers. FHV-1 affects cats only and cannot be passed on to humans or to other species of animals.
