Abstract:
Upper Respiratory Tract infections are common disease conditions encountered in both household and shelter cats. The most frequent etiological agents reported are Feline Herpes virus-1 (FHV-1), Chlamydia felis (C. felis) and Mycoplasma felis (M. felis). Twenty five cats with clinical signs of upper respiratory tract disease were screened for the presence of FHV-1 C. felis and M. felis by polymerase chain reaction. Twenty two out of 25 cats were found to be positive for the presence of FHV-1 whereas none of the samples had DNA of C. felis and M. felis.
