Feline panleukopaenia (also known as “feline parvovirus”, “feline enteritis” or more recently “cat plague”) has has been receiving a lot of press coverage lately. The virus that causes this disease can survive in the environment for years. Sydney experienced a similar outbreak 12 months ago. This outbreak, however, is confined to Greater Metropolitan Melbourne and poses little risk to cats in Sydney. Click here to read more about the current Victorian epidemic.
Feline enteritis has a mortality rate of 90% in infected kittens and is preventable with the use of vaccinations. While adult cats are very rarely infected with the disease, herd health (or vaccinating the entire population of cats) is vital to help eradicate the disease.
Please call (02) 9498 3000 to make an appointment if your cat is not vaccinated.
