Editor’s note: Ocular surface and upper respiratory tract disease often occur in combination in cats, especially in juveniles. Feline herpes virus 1 (FHV-1) is generally heralded as the most common pathogen involved but other possible players include Chlamydophila felis, Mycoplasma felis, and feline calicivirus (FCV). The authors of the current study sought to investigate the prevalence of FCV infection in cats with combined ocular surface and upper respiratory disease.
