Feline Foamy Virus Infection in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Currently there is no course of treatment for cats with FeFV infections, except for prescribing immunosuppressive medications to those with chronic progressive polyarthritis. Caution must be used with cats that are also infected with FIV or FeLV.

 

Living and Management

 

Adverse reactions are unlikely with cats only suffering from FeFV. Animals that also have chronic progressive polyarthritis, on the other hand, often have a poor prognosis for long-term recovery.
