|Feline Calicivirus: animalhealthchannel |
Common viral disease that affects cats, characterized by upper respiratory symptoms, pneumonia, oral ulceration (sores in the mouth) & occasionally arthritis. It is a fairly mild flu-like condition & rarely causes serious complications.
|Inactivation of enteric adenovirus and feline calicivirus by ozone |
Little information is available regarding the effectiveness of ozone on the inactivation of caliciviruses and enteric adenoviruses. Inactivation experiments were conducted with feline calicivirus (FCV), closely related to the human caliciviruses based on nucleic acid organization and capsid architecture, and adenovirus type 40 (AD40).
|Detection of the ORF3 polypeptide of feline calicivirus |
Report on the identification of an ORF3-encoded polypeptide in FCV-infected cells using an antiserum raised against a bacterially-expressed bacteriophage T7 gene 10-ORF3 fusion protein.

|Feline Calicivirus Vaccine: Encyclopedia of Feline Veterinary Medical Information |
Feline calicivirus often occurs along with other respiratory infections, such as feline herpes virus or feline rhinotracheitis. Cats suffering from feline calicivirus exhibit symptoms of nasal and eye discharge, and oral lesions along with gingivitis.
|Feline Herpesvirus and Calicivirus: Winn Feline Foundation |
One of the most common illnesses seen in kittens less than one year of age is upper respiratory tract disease. While there are several agents responsible for upper respiratory disease in cats, the clinical signs of all tend to overlap. General signs include sneezing, discharge from the eyes or nose, fever, lethargy and loss of appetite. The two most common agents of upper respiratory disease in cats are the viruses, feline herpesvirus (FHV) and feline calicivirus (FCV).

Cat flu is a common disease caused by either of two viruses; feline herpesvirus or feline calicivirus and sometimes feline chlamydia.

|Felocell® RESP-3: Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Chlamydia Psittaci Vaccine |
Felocell RESP-3 is for vaccination of healthy cats as an aid in preventing feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) caused by feline herpesvirus-1, feline respiratory disease caused by feline calicivirus (FCV), and feline chlamydiosis caused by Chlamydia psittaci. Felocell RESP-3 contains attenuated strains of feline rhinotracheitis virus, calicivirus, and C. psittaci propagated on established cell lines. Felocell RESP-3 is packaged in freeze-dried form with inert gas in place of vacuum.
|Evaluation of the Occurrence of Calicivirus in Cats with Gingivitis: Proceedings, 2009 (WSAVA) |
World Small Animal Veterinary Association 2009. The inflammatory diseases of the feline oral cavity are common in the daily clinical practice & many times, constitute therapeutic challenges to the veterinarian. According to the classification proposed by Waters et al., the feline gingivitis can be classified in four degrees, according to the intensity & characteristics of the oral lesions.
|Cat Calicivirus: Vetservice Info |
Feline calicivirus is part of the cat flu syndrome. Symptoms include sneezing, nasal discharge, conjunctivitis (inflammation of the lining of the eyes), discharge from the eyes, loss of appetite, fever and depression. Occasionally, mouth and eye ulcers and excessive drooling of saliva may be seen.
|Feline Calicivirus Infection in Cats: PetMD |
Feline calicivirus infection is a common respiratory disease in cats. The virus attacks the respiratory tract -- lungs and nasal passages -- the mouth, with ulceration of the tongue, the intestines, and the musculoskeletal system. It is highly communicable in unvaccinated cats, and is commonly seen in multicat facilities, shelters, poorly ventilated households, and breeding catteries.
|Feline Calicivirus: A Challenge for Vaccines, 2004 (WSAVA) |
World Small Animal Veterinary Association 2004. Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a major pathogen of the domestic cat causing upper-respiratory tract infection, oral vesicular disease & chronic stomatitis. FCV is characterized by a high level of antigenic & pathogenic variation. In spite of widespread vaccination, prevalence of FCV infection is still very high & current vaccines which reduce clinical signs & virus shedding may not protect against infection.
|Cats & Calicivirus Infection: The Evolving Pattern of Disease, 2006 (WSAVA) |
World Small Animal Veterinary Association 2006. Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a highly infectious pathogen of cats with a widespread distribution. The virus typically causes moderate, self-limiting acute upper respiratory tract disease. However, some strains induce lameness & recently, more virulent strains have evolved.
