A highly contagious DNA virus infection of the cat family, characterized by fever, enteritis and bone marrow changes. It is also called feline ataxia, feline agranulocytosis, feline infectious enteritis, cat fever, cat plague, and show fever. It is caused by FELINE PANLEUKOPENIA VIRUS or the closely related MINK ENTERITIS VIRUS or CANINE PARVOVIRUS.
A species of PARVOVIRUS infecting cats with a highly contagious enteric disease. Host range variants include mink enteritis virus, canine parvovirus (PARVOVIRUS, CANINE), and raccoon parvovirus. After infecting their new hosts, many of these viruses have further evolved and are now considered distinct species.
A species of the genus PARVOVIRUS and a host range variant of FELINE PANLEUKOPENIA VIRUS. It causes a highly infectious fulminating ENTERITIS in dogs producing high mortality. It is distinct from CANINE MINUTE VIRUS, a species in the genus BOCAVIRUS. This virus can also infect cats and mink.
A family of very small DNA viruses containing a single molecule of single-stranded DNA and consisting of two subfamilies: PARVOVIRINAE and DENSOVIRINAE. They infect both vertebrates and invertebrates.
The domestic cat, Felis catus, of the carnivore family FELIDAE, comprising over 30 different breeds. The domestic cat is descended primarily from the wild cat of Africa and extreme southwestern Asia. Though probably present in towns in Palestine as long ago as 7000 years, actual domestication occurred in Egypt about 4000 years ago. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 6th ed, p801)
Carnivores of the genus Procyon of the family PROCYONIDAE. Two subgenera and seven species are currently recognized. They range from southern Canada to Panama and are found in several of the Caribbean Islands.

Feline coronavirus participation in diarrhea of cats. (1/31)

Fecal samples were examined for viruses participated in gastrointestinal disorders of cats, especially focusing on feline coronavirus (FCoV) by a reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction assay. It was found that a primary viral pathogen was feline panleukopenia parvovirus (FPLV; 28.5% of the positive rate) and the secondary was FCoV (10.7%). Commonly reported clinical signs of cats of which feces were FCoV-positive were vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration with an exception of one serious case with concurrent FPLV infection.  (+info)

Enterocolitis associated with dual infection by Clostridium piliforme and feline panleukopenia virus in three kittens. (2/31)

Dual infection by Clostridium piliforme and feline panleukopenia virus (FPLV) was found in three kittens. In all cases, we found focal necrosis and desquamation of epithelial cells with occasional neutrophil infiltration in the large intestine. Large filamentous bacilli and spores were observed in the epithelium by using the Warthin-Starry method. Electron microscopy revealed the vegetative forms with characteristic peritrichous flagella and spore forms. Immunohistochemically, these bacilli showed a positive reaction with mouse antisera against the RT and MSK C. piliforme strains. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using cecum specimens demonstrated the 196-bp band specific to C. piliforme 16S rRNA. All three kittens were also diagnosed as FPLV-infected on the basis of the characteristic mucosal lesions, including intranuclear inclusions and PCR study for the FPLV genomic DNA. The PCR techniques are useful for confirming the C. piliforme and FPLV infection in spontaneous cases.  (+info)

Comparison of prevalence of feline herpesvirus type 1, calicivirus and parvovirus infections in domestic and leopard cats in Vietnam. (3/31)

A serosurvey of feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1), feline calicivirus (FCV), and feline parvovirus (FPV) in cats from Ho Chi Minh City area in southern Vietnam was conducted in December 1998, and we compared the results with our previous results in northern Vietnam (Hanoi area). The positive rate of FHV and FCV in domestic cats were 44% and 74%, respectively. They were rather higher than those in Hanoi area, while the seropositivity of FPV (44%) was similar to that in Hanoi area. In leopard cats, the positive rate of FPV was high (3/4) and it indicated that FPV was prevailing in leopard cats in Vietnam.  (+info)

Seroprevalence of canine distemper virus in cats. (4/31)

A seroepidemiological survey of canine distemper virus (CDV) infection in Asian felids revealed that the prevalence of antibodies varied depending on region and, in some cases, exposure to dogs. The serologic pattern in cats with antibodies indicated that they had likely been exposed to field strains rather than typical CDV vaccine strains.  (+info)

Pathogenic potential of canine parvovirus types 2a and 2c in domestic cats. (5/31)

The in vivo pathogenicity of canine parvovirus (CPV) type 2c (strain V203) and of CPV type 2a (strain V154) against cats was investigated. Our results indicate that both types of CPV have the potential to induce disease in cats.  (+info)

Dynamics of a feline virus with two transmission modes within exponentially growing host populations. (6/31)

Feline panleucopenia virus (FPLV) was introduced in 1977 on Marion Island (in the southern Indian Ocean) with the aim of eradicating the cat population and provoked a huge decrease in the host population within six years. The virus can be transmitted either directly through contacts between infected and healthy cats or indirectly between a healthy cat and the contaminated environment: a specific feature of the virus is its high rate of survival outside the host. In this paper, a model was designed in order to take these two modes of transmission into account. The results showed that a mass-action incidence assumption was more appropriate than a proportionate mixing one in describing the dynamics of direct transmission. Under certain conditions the virus was able to control the host population at a low density. The indirect transmission acted as a reservoir supplying the host population with a low but sufficient density of infected individuals which allowed the virus to persist. The dynamics of the infection were more affected by the demographic parameters of the healthy hosts than by the epidemiological ones. Thus, demographic parameters should be precisely measured in field studies in order to obtain accurate predictions. The predicted results of our model were in good agreement with observations.  (+info)

Feline Panleukopenia. I. Pathogenesis in germfree and specific pathogen-free cats. (7/31)

Germfree and specific pathogen-free cats were inoculated panleukopenia vivus. Total leucocyte counts decreased significantly in both germfree and specific pathogen-free cats. Clinical illness was not seen in any germfree cat. Specific pathogen-free cats had anorexia and slight diarrhea 5-6 days after inoculation. None of the cats died. Both germfree and specific pathogen-free cats had thymic involution. No other gross lesions were seen. Tissues for histological virus isolation and immunofluorescence studies were taken daily from days 2 through 6 after inoculation. Virus-infected cells and lesions of panleukopenia were seen in the small intestine of both germfree and specific pathogen-free cats. The incidence of virus-infected cells and lesions was greater in specific pathogen-free cats than in germfree cats.  (+info)

Feline panleukopenia. II. The relationship of intestinal mucosal cell proliferation rates to viral infection and development of lesions. (8/31)

Proliferation rates of small intestinal mucosal cells of noninfected germfree and specific pathogen-free kittens were compared to the incidence of infected cells and microscopic lesions in kittens experimentally infected with panleukopenia virus. Mucosal crypt length, cells per crypt, mitotic index and villous length were greater in specific pathogen-free kittens than in germfree kittens. Crypt cells per unit length and villous length per crypt length ratio were greater in germfree kittens. The cryptal cell proliferation rate of specific pathogen-free kittens was 2.24 times that of germfree kittens. Mucosal crypt length, cell per crypt and villous length were greater in the proximal jejunum than in the midjejunum of kittens within groups. Cell proliferation rates per crypt did not differ between areas of the intestine in kittens within groups. There were more virus-infected cells and lesions in specific pathogen-free kittens than in germfree kittens. The incidence of virus-infected cells and lesions was greater in the proximal jejumum and decreased along the small intestine.  (+info)

Also known as Feline Panleukopaenia. FIE is a disease that strikes suddenly and progresses very quickly to death. If FIE is suspected, action must be taken
In Germany, 90% of cases of infectious enteritis are caused by four pathogens, Norovirus, Rotavirus, Campylobacter and Salmonella.[5] Other common causes of infectious enteritis include bacteria such as Shigella and E. coli, as well as viruses such as adenovirus, astrovirus and calicivirus. Other less common pathogens include Bacillus cereus, Clostridium perfringens, Clostridium difficile and Staphylococcus aureus.[6]. Campylobacter jejuni is one of the most common sources of infectious enteritis, and the most common bacterial pathogen found in 2 year old and smaller children with diarrhoea.[7] It has been linked to consumption of contaminated water and food, most commonly poultry and milk.[8][9] The disease tends to be less severe in developing countries, due to the constant exposure which people have with the antigen in the environment, leading to early development of antibodies.[7]. Rotavirus is responsible for infecting 140 million people and causing 1 million deaths each year, mostly in ...

This means that 4 in every 10 cats will succumb to one of these fatal diseases in their lifetime. This high prevalence does not include the resurgence of an old disease, Feline Panleukopenia (FPV), and an emerging disease, Feline Herpesvirus type-1 (FHV-1).. In dogs, viral diseases are, fortunately, better controlled because of effective vaccines and vaccination programs. Unfortunately, we are seeing a resurgence in canine parvovirosis (CPV-2) and a new strain of canine distemper (CDV), especially in breeding farms and kennels.. Check out on the Communities page to read the experiences of NEW cat owners about RetroMAD1.. Cat plague or Feline Panleukopenia (FPV) is seeing a resurgence in the past 3 years. It was first reported in Australia in February 2018. It has spread today to the industrialized economies of North Asia and Eastern Europe as we receive more and more enquiries from cat owner groups and veterinarians from these territories. Commercial vaccines are available and vaccination is ...
Hi Kaylah… thanks for visiting and asking. I am sorry to hear that your cat is sick.. The vomiting is repeated and the vomit a frothy clear liquid. It has been going on for sometime.. All this points to the fact that this is not just a cat doing their usual vomiting because of hairballs or because they have eaten some grass or some food that disagrees with them.. Cats are good at vomiting. We almost get used to it and lots of it is OK and routine, normal. But this is not case in this instance, in my opinion.. The signs may indicate infectious enteritis (Feline Distemper) but it could be many things. Vomiting is the symptom of many illnesses or for example an intestinal obstruction.. If it goes on like this (it is persistent and severe) it could be serious. The vets say this.. The disease (if she has one) is not zoonotic in my opinion, meaning transferable to humans.. Conclusion: you gotta see a vet I am afraid. And I know people dont like doing that because of the cost and the trauma of the ...
In December of 2000, the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the Academy of Feline Medicine Advisory Panel on Feline Vaccines published the 2nd version of vaccination guidelines for cats. Recommendations of a panel of selected experts in the field of immunology, feline medicine and veterinary law contributed to the development of this document. The current panel report updates information, addresses questions, and speaks to concerns raised by the 1998 report. In addition, it reviews vaccine licensing, labeling, and liability issues and suggests ways to successfully incorporate vaccination protocol change into a private practice setting. Of particular concern to veterinarians are the recommendations for an extended booster vaccination interval (to 3 years) for feline panleukopenia, herpesvirus-1, and calicivirus in adult cats. Furthermore, several recommendations are included in this document based on new information on vaccine efficacy and safety. Principle recommendations on feline ...

Cats can suffer from a range of diseases like rabies, upper respiratory infection, feline panleukopenia, parasitic infestation, etc. Keep yourself informed with these common diseases, so that you can take care of your cat in the best way.
This disease is widespread, and outdoor cats will most likely be exposed to it by their first birthday. The symptoms are fever, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal swelling. Healthy cats will most likely not exhibit serious symptoms, but the few that do are usually very young kittens either with immature immune systems or they were infected in utero. These animals usually die within a few days. If they recover, they will most likely exhibit signs of poor coordination and muscle tremors. When I first started working for a veterinarian, one of my co-workers adopted a kitten ill with the disease, and, though it recovered through much TLC, it obviously had neurological damage. In fact, I think my co-worker named the kitten Tipsy ...
FP is controlled in several ways. Cats that survive a natural infection usually develop sufficient, active immunity to protect them for the rest of their lives. Mild cases may go unnoticed and also produce immunity.. It is also possible for kittens to receive immunity from their mother through the transfer of antibody. This passive immunity from the mother is temporary and its effectiveness varies in proportion to the level of antibody in the mothers body. The immunity diminishes rapidly and is not considered effective after 12 weeks of age.. Vaccines offer the safest protection. Most vaccines are made from live viruses treated to destroy their ability to cause disease. They stimulate the cats body to produce protective antibodies against the virus to prevent infection by natural, disease causing viruses. The vaccines are very effective but are preventive, not curative. They must be administered before the cat is exposed and infected to be effective. Most young kittens receive their first ...

Feline panleukopenia virus (FPV) is a small, single-stranded DNA virus that is morphologically and antigenically very similar to canine parvovirus (CPV) type 2, mink enteric virus, and raccoon parvovirus. It has been suggested that FPV is the ancestor virus for CPV because current strains of CPV can infect cats as well as dogs. FPV is shed in secretions from infected animals for weeks to months following infection. It is very stable in organic debris in the environment and may remain viable at room temperature for over one year. ...

Intestinal inflammation is associated with dysfunction from the mucosal barrier, which can occur in intestinal bowel diseases, allergic diarrhea, and infectious enteritis, or conditions that affect muscularis or outer layers of the bowel wall, such as peritonitis and postoperative ileus. In the latter case, intestinal muscularis macrophages play an important role in inducing intestinal dysmotility during inflammation by producing PGs and NO (7, 20, 40, 41, 50). However, the roles of PGs in iNOS induction and the subsequent intestinal dysmotility are not well understood. In the present study, we demonstrate that PGE2 produced due to LPS stimulation activates the muscularis resident macrophages via EP2 and EP4 receptors to express the iNOS gene, which, in turn, induces intestinal dysmotility via the production of NO. PGE2 induces iNOS gene expression through the cAMP/PKA/MAPK signal transduction pathways in the intestinal muscularis macrophages.. Intestinal muscularis macrophages play an important ...
Bacterial diseases like tuberculosis are common both in animals that live in the wild and under captivity. Then there is the viral disease, foot-and-mouth-it causes painful mouth ulcers and can be fatal. Of late, animals have been hit by a host of new diseases. Deer, for example, were diagnosed with blue tongue disease, hitherto known as a viral affliction of sheep and goats. In the Gir forests, Asiatic lions could be susceptible to contagious diseases such as salmonellosis and anthrax. After all, these are common afflictions of cattle which the lions prey on. But no study has been done to understand if the prey passes on diseases to the predator. Animals in zoos do not fare better. Tigers, lions and bear are known to suffer from ulcers in the gastrointestinal tracts-called infectious enteritis in technicalese-rabies and tumours known as neoplasm ...
