The clinical disease and patterns of excretion associated with three different strains of feline caliciviruses.

Abstract

Three groups of cats were infected intranasally with three different feline calicivirus strains: A3, 68/40 and M8. Each strain produced a uniformly muld upper respiratory tract disease, with glossal ulceration being the most prominent clinical sign. Virus was most consistently isolated from the oro-pharyngeal region and, in non-euthanised animals, excretion continued long after clinical signs had disappeared. It is suggested that an asymptomatic phase of excretion may be a normal sequel to FCV infections.
