Cat fever, also known as cat panleukopenia and cat infectious enteritis, is an acute, highly infectious disease of cats. Clinical manifestations include sudden high fever, intractable vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, circulatory disorders, and a sharp drop in white blood cells.
The virus infects not only domestic cats, but other felines as well. Cats of all ages can be infected. In most cases, cats under 1 year of age are susceptible, with infection rates as high as 70% and mortality rates of 50%-60%, with the highest mortality rate of 80% to 90% in kittens under 5 months of age. This kit is designed for the detection of feline microvirus antigens in cat feces and vomit.
