Diagnostic test for Feline Coronavirus FCoV Ab for cats

Feline Coronavirus (FCoV) is a common viral infection in cats. Feline coronavirus is transmitted via the fecal-oral route and primarily infects enterocytes. Cats can become persistently infected and continuously or intermittently shed virus with the feces. 40% or more of cats will be infected with the virus at some time in their lives and most owners will be unaware of it. It generally causes asymptomatic infection, but can cause mild diarrhea that can last up to few days. Vomiting occurs in a smaller proportion of cases and is not usually a prominent feature.
In a very small percentage of cats, the virus mutates and causes a fatal disease called Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), which has no cure.

With the REDTEST Rapid Diagnostic FCoV Test you can detect if your cat has been exposed to Feline Coronavirus.
