What Are the Symptoms of FPV and How Should It Be Treated?
I believe that when cats come to FPV, many cat owners will find it difficult to deal with it. What is FPV and what should they do when encountering FPV?
Cat FPV is the abbreviation of Feline panleukopenia virus. The main principle of FPV test kit is to detect by extracting the intestinal antigen stool of the body which is similar to that of a human pregnancy test stick. The C line on the test board is the reference line. In addition to comparing whether there is infection It can also confirm the validity of the test board. The T line is the virus line. When the T line is displayed, it is basically confirmed that there is detoxification. If the color of the C line is the same as that of the C line, it is positive. Generally, the diagnosis can be made by combining the cat’s clinical symptoms and blood routine, but the most accurate way is to directly take samples and send them for PCR.
What Are the Symptoms of FPV?
After a cat is infected with FPV, it will not become ill immediately. The virus will lie dormant in the cat's body for about 2 to 9 days, and then gradually erupt.
In the early stage of FPV outbreak, the symptoms are not obvious. The cats only show lack of energy and loss of appetite (some cats will not eat or drink at all). If it is diagnosed and treated in time, it is often found in the early stage of feline plague, and the chance of cure will be higher.
Within one or two days, the cat will have obvious gastrointestinal symptoms, including vomiting, diarrhea, etc. It is easier to find out at this time, and there is still a great possibility of timely treatment.
After another day or two, the cat will vomit more and more frequently, have more diarrhea, and will become dehydrated (some cats will also have blood in the stool), and it will be more difficult to treat at this time.
However, not all cats have the same symptoms after they get feline plague. After all, each cat’s situation is different. The excrement shoveler can prepare some FPV test strips and check them at any time.
