From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cat flu is feline upper respiratory tract disease. It is generally a misnomer since it usually does not refer to an infection by an influenza virus. Instead it is a syndrome: a term meaning any flu-like respiratory disease in a cat. The signs of this disease may be caused by one or more of several different infectious agents (pathogens):

  • Official name of causitive agent - (a related more common term)
  1. Feline viral rhinotracheitis also known as feline herpesvirus type 1 or FHV-1 - (cat common cold)
  2. Feline calicivirus - (cat respiratory disease)
  3. Bordetella bronchiseptica - (cat kennel cough)
  4. H5N1 (avian flu) - see global spread of H5N1#Felidae (cats)
