Feline Herpes Virus

Understanding Feline Herpes Virus

Feline herpes virus is considered the most common cause of feline upper respiratory infections.  It is better known as the “common cold” in cats.  Feline herpes virus is caused by the FHV-1 virus which is contracted from direct cat to cat contact.  Although all cats are at risk, cats which are pregnant, have a low immune system, and kittens under 5 weeks old are most at risk for serious complications.   

 

Symptoms of Active Feline Herpes Virus

Some cats can become infected with the herpesvirus and never present any outward signs or symptoms, but simply remain carriers all of their lives.  These cats will not transmit the virus to other cats while they are asymptomatic.  Other cats will continually shed the virus and present outward symptoms, and are contagious to other cats while shedding the virus.  Symptoms which can be associated with the virus include any or all of the following:

 

  • Sudden, uncontrollable attacks of sneezing
  • Watery or pus containing nasal discharge
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Spasm of the eyelid muscle resulting in closure of the eye
  • Eye discharge
  • Inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye (conjunctivitis)
  • Keratitis (inflammation of the cornea causing watery painful eyes and blurred vision.)
  • Lack of appetite
  • Fever
  • General malaise
  • Loss of pregnancy

 

 

Cause/ Infection Rates

This infection is very common and found in most all multi-cat households, catteries and animal shelters.  Prevalence rates have been cited to be as high as 78-92% in pure-bred cats obtained from a cattery.  The infection is most commonly spread from nursing mothers to kittens.  Therefore, even when the utmost caution and infection control measures are taken, infection to newborn kittens is nearly inevitable. 

To put the commonality of the risk of infection into perspective, one might consider the human comparison, the rhinotracheitis virus which causes the common cold in humans.  It is very widely known and accepted that most everyone has contracted the common cold at one point in their lives.  It would be impractical to think that a child, might be raised from 0 to 18 years old (the time of leaving the household), and never had been exposed and contracted the common cold.  This exposure comes from parents, siblings, classmates ect.  The same rate of infection and exposure is as true and to be expected in the cat breeding community, as well as any cat in a shelter or rescue setting.  Typically the only cats which have a chance of being spared feline herpes infection are those who are born to feral mother cats living in a very rural setting widely detached from any feral cat colony. 

 

Treatment of Feline Herpes Virus

For mild symptoms such as sneezing, and watery eyes no treatment may be necessary. However, a visit to your veterinarian is always recommended to help determine if it is in fact a feline herpes virus infection or another cause. Also your veterinarian will determine if your cat needs treatment with an antibiotic for a secondary bacterial infection.  It is important to note that antibiotics do not treat the herpes virus, as antibiotic will only work on bacteria not viruses.  Although there are antiviral treatments available for use for the herpes virus infection of the eyes, there is no systemic treatment available for cats.  There are no actual treatments to rid your cat of the herpes virus; once infected they are infected for life.

 

Carrier vs. Shedder 

It is important to understand the difference between a cat who is a carrier and a cat who is a shedder of the virus.  While all cats which have been exposed to the virus will carry it and have it for the rest of their lives, some cats simply never present symptoms; these cats are called carriers.  The virus will lay dominant in the nerve blocks in the body for years without becoming active. 

Cats who are shedders also carry the virus and from time to time have outward symptoms of an active infection.  When these cats are “shedding the virus,” they are contagious to other cats.  However, in consideration of the fact that most all cats, especially cats from shelters, rescues, and catteries, have been previously exposed to the virus, it is not necessary to separate the cats, unless the unaffected cat is a very young kitten, or very elderly cat.

 

Prevention/ Decrease Severity

Although there is most times no effective way to prevent the spread of the herpes virus; because kittens are exposed directly from the mother cat, there are ways to reduce the risk of severe outbreaks.  The first line of defense is taking precaution to ensure that the cat is living in a sanitary, temperate, low-stress home and being fed a nourishing, species-appropriate raw or canned food diet.  This is because the immune system plays a huge part in the modulation of viruses in the body.  The virus will lay dormant in the body until the immune system is weakened by stress via the environment or through poor nutrition.  When the immune system is weakened, the virus lying dormant in the body is allowed to become active again.

The diet is also a huge contributing factor to the outbreak and spread of the virus because 85% of the immune system resides in the GI tract.  A healthy, well-functioning GI tract is of utmost importance to a cats overall health and immunity.  It is critical that a cat eats a species appropriate diet which consists of at least 95% protein in the form of canned or raw food only.   Cats are not meant to eat carbohydrates from grains and starch, so a dry food/kibble diet is not appropriate for cats and will lead to an unhealthy weight, unhealthy GI, weakened immune system and a slew of other health issues. 

The next tool of prevention comes in the form of an anti-viral supplement known as L-lysine.  L-lysine is an amino acid which is found naturally in various kinds of meat, beans, cheese and eggs.  L-lysine has long been known in the world of human medicine to be very effective against cold sores caused by herpes simplex I.  It has also become more widely known in recent years that L-lysine is also very effective for the use of controlling the herpes virus in cats. 

L-lysine can be purchased in specially formulated veterinary formulations for feline palatability, or it can be purchased in plain powder or capsule form for human use which has no taste and most cats will take to it perfectly well mixed into their meals.  The human version is perfectly safe for acts as it is the same amino acid, just ensure the formulation you purchase has no other added ingredients.  It is recommended to use 500 mg daily during any times of stress for your cat.  Times of stress to your cat can include, a new animal arriving into the household, house visitors, moving, or traveling. It is recommended to give for a span of 7 days before, during, and after the stressful event to help prevent the outbreak of the illness in your cats.

If your cat does become sick and it is determined to be from the herpes virus, it is recommended to treat with 1,000 mg of L-lysine daily until 3 days after the symptoms have subsided.  If your cat has been sick for more than 5-7 days, or if it is unknown that they have recurrent herpes outbreaks, a visit to your veterinarian right away is recommended. 

 

L-Lysine

 

Vaccination

Vaccination for the herpes virus is included in what is considered to be the “core vaccines” for all cats.  However, it is often misunderstood that vaccination is prevention and it is in fact not the case.  The vaccine is designed to administer a modified live version of the virus which will trigger the cat’s immune system to produce antibodies to the virus.  This in turn, gives the cat added protection against the virus should they have an active outbreak or acquire infection in the future.  Remember, that most all kittens already have contracted the virus in uterine, so even by the recommended age of vaccination at 7-8 weeks, the vaccine is not able to work as prevention, but simply an infection modulator.

 

How to make your cat feel better during an outbreak

If your cat has an outbreak, the first thing you should do is bring them into your veterinarian right away for an exam to be sure that there is not another cause of illness or a secondary bacterial infection.  If your veterinarian determines your cat’s illness is caused by a herpes virus flare-up, there are several things that you can do to help your cat to feel better.

 

  • Utmost importance is hydration.  Your veterinarian may give your cat fluids under the skin (sub-cutaneous.). If this is not done by your vet you can help to ensure that your cat is getting plenty of fluids by giving daily fresh water or providing a water fountain.  Also,, you can consider adding some chicken broth, tuna broth, or water to your cats food and be sure to feed your cat only a wet food diet at least during times of illness.
  • Clean your cat’s eyes frequently to remove discharge and prevent it from causing hard, uncomfortable crust in their eyes. Be sure to use only sterile saline to clean their eyes.
  • Be sure to keep your cat as calm and resting as possible.
  • Give 1,000 mg of L-lysine daily until 3 days after symptoms are gone.
  • Use a humidifier or put your cat in a steamy bathroom to help break up congestion.

 

 

Follow these steps to practice good immunity for your cat, good prevention, vaccination, and treatment to help keep your cat healthy despite feline herpes virus infection.  With proper management, this very common feline virus does not have to impact your beloved cat’s health or happiness.

 

Please note: This article has been provided for informational purposes only. If your pet is showing any signs of illness, please consult a veterinarian as quickly as possible. A raw food diet may not be appropriate for all cats in all stages of health and we always recommend having your cat examined and discussing diet changes with your veterinarian.

Hairless Sphynx and Bambino Kitten

New adoptive kitty parent elated with love from her new baby

 

Finally!!! The time is here, you waited long and patiently for your new baby to grow-up those long 12 weeks and be ready to come home to you!  Now it is time to be sure that you are prepared and understand the best way to acclimate your new baby to your home, your family, perhaps your other pets and your children.  As much as you have been patient until now, you will need to have resilience and be patient just a little bit longer to give your new baby time to adjust.  Below are the main things to be considered to give your new baby the best possible start in their new life.

 

  • Quarantine: ALWAYS plan to keep your new kitten separated from other animals and children for at least one week!  Plan ahead of time to have a spare bedroom, or your bedroom, to keep them in for the first 7 days.  This is of up-most importance for several reasons; first being that your new kitty will be under a great deal of stress after traveling for several hours and many times stress can cause new kitty to become sick with an upper respiratory infection or a gastrointestinal infection.  Often times though these conditions and the viruses that cause them can lay dormant for 3 days before any signs of symptoms.  So your new kitty may seem completely fine upon arrival and then on day 3 or 4 have a cold! This is why you must quarantine for a week, you do not want your other pets to become sick as well if this does happen, and unfortunately it is a fairy common occurrence.  The second reason is because your new kitty will already be under a great deal of stress and other pets and children can exacerbate the current stress to them.  Lastly, your new baby has been raised in one nursery room with only supervised trips out in the main part of the house, so your house will seem like a castle to your new kitty and they might not only get nervous at first, but also have difficulty remembering how to get back to the spot you put the litter boxes.  Being in one room only with you will help them to feel more secure in the beginning and within a few days they will be more than ready to explore.

 

  • Introduction: During the time your kitty is in quarantine, you can use this period to begin safely introducing your new kitty to the rest of your family.  We recommend only letting small children visit for 5-10 minutes the first few days or only until if they become anxious and excited which could scare the kitty.  After the first few days it is a good idea to take items of new kitty and let the other animals smell and vice versa; this could mean swapping blankets or toys ect. Just be cautious to be sure neither shows any signs of illness.   Feeding time is a very good opportunity to begin socializing as well.  While your kitty is still in quarantine period you will want to feed your kitten and your other cat/s next to either sides of the closed bedroom door.  This way they have a chance to smell each other under the closed door safely and begin to associate the other cat with something good and positive that they both like FOOD!  Along the same lines it is a great idea to you a sting toy that you can safely play with both cats through a closed door by putting it under the door to one side and then pulling it back through the other. If you have a patio with glass doors as well this is a wonderful way to safely let the cats see each other during the quarantine period without anyone being able to be hurt or catch a cold.

 

  • Once through the quarantine period you are safe to let your new kitty meet the rest of the family! If you are still concerned or nervous about another cat or dog being aggressive to the new kitten there are ways you can let everyone meet and still be very safe for another period of a week or longer if needed to give more time for everyone to acclimate.  The best way is for you to use a large carrier or metal crate that you will put the kitty in and allow the other kitty into the room so they can meet through the carrier/crate but still be safe.  What you want to see happen is the other kitty come up to the crate door and smell and sniff, maybe even hiss a little or growl, but then walks away.  Do not let them continue if the hissing and growling goes on for over a minute or they begin to try to fight between the crate door; if this happens separate them again and try again later that day or the next.                                                            Now you can continue this socialization each day but be sure to switch and have your house kitty in the crate the next time and the kitten outside to explore the house!  You will want to help speed socialization during this process by giving treats to both, inside and outside of the crate right next to each other at the door, and also playing with them together through the crate with both will be wonderful too!

 

  • Be sure to feed your house kitty and your new kitty in separate dishes to avoid food aggression/fear. Also if you have other cats you will need to increase the number and location of litter boxes you have for the house.  It is advised by any veterinarian or professional animal behaviorist to have one additional litter box than you do cats in the household.  This means that if you have three cats you should have four litter boxes available to them and in different areas of the house.  This is the #1 cause of poor litter box behavior and inappropriate elimination is improper acclimation to the new household. Be certain to have the same type of litter box your new kitty has been used to, the same type of litter, one more boxes than you do cats, and placement of boxes in quiet low traffic areas.   Think about it like this; would you be bit leery of sharing the same toilet with people you didn’t know; especially if they do not believe in flushing?

 

  • Food and Supplements: It is also important to be sure you have the same food your kitten had been eating at home and ready for them when they arrive. We of course have a list of all that information and even offer you to purchase the food directly from us if you live locally to make it more convenient for you.  Feed you kitten only this food for at least the first week, and then if you decide to switch your babies food do it very slowly over the course of a couple weeks by mixing the old food and the new food together gradually adding more of the new food until it is completely switched.  This is important as to not cause diarrhea which can lead to dehydration and your new kitty feeling sick. In addition, we STRONGLY advise you to use Forti Flora probiotic supplement.  This supplement is very helpful to your cat by giving them beneficial bacteria to help their digestive tracts and immune systems.  

 

We hope this helps you be prepared and eliminates anxiety surrounding your new arrival.  As long as you follow these steps and precautions all will go very smooth your new kitty will be happy and healthy for years to come.  The HUGE key to all successful home-comings is that you reserve a lot of time and patience!  Patience is a MUST your new kitty and other animals will need a full 3 week period before they are fully acclimated so be sure to be patient, patient and more patient!  As always any questions just ASK!

sphynx cat heat lamp

sphynx cat heat lampsphynx cat heal bulb

Heat Lamps and Bulbs

One of THE most important things you can purchase and use for your hairless or short coated cat is a heat lamp.  This is critically important as these cats do not have fur they constantly lose their body heat and have difficulty staying warm.  We recommend using heat lamps attached to their kitty climber, or elsewhere your kitty likes to lay with bedding under.  The heat lamps do work a lot more effectively than heating pads or beds as the body loses most of its heat through the head; therefore, the heat basking down over your cat helps them to maintain their temperature more effectively than a heat bed. There are different options for bulbs; you can purchase a natural light emitting bulb, a black light bulb, red light, or no light ceramic bulbs. The lamps should be re-secured with zip ties to prevent it from falling.  Hang about 16 inches or higher from your pet’s bed.

Pet Ubiqounole

Ubiquinole Ubiquinole is the highly absorbable version of the critically important essential nutrient coenzyme Q10. This nutrient is important for supporting energy production throughout your cat’s body to maintain good circulation, promote immune function, healthy levels of oxygen, GI health, and much more.  However the most critical function it supports is heart function and especially because these breeds are very prevalent to heart disease this supplement could literally be the secret to extending the life of your cat by many, many, years.  If your cat has been diagnosed with HCM or any other cardiac disease this supplement is truly a requirement and is prescribed by cardiologists who are on top of the latest research in their field.

sphynx cat vitamins

Vitamins If you are feeding a commercially prepared cooked cat food diet, it is very likely that your cat is only getting the minimum requirements of nutrients which are vital for your cat to thrive and live a long healthy life.  If you want to help ensure that your cat is getting a well-balanced healthy diet including all of the important amino acids and vitamins and minerals they need you can simply add these delicious health nugget vitamins to your cat’s meals, crush and make gravy or just serve as a treat.  Contains actual whole food ingredients so that your cat cannot be over-dosed accidentally by giving too much of one nutrient as with many other kitty vitamins on the market.
