The Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and RSPCA Victoria have advised that Feline Panleukopenia has been detected in kittens within Victoria and NSW. All cat owners should check their pets are receiving all necessary vaccinations, including booster vaccinations for kittens.   


What is Feline Panleukopenia?

Feline Panleukopenia (FPV) is a virus that causes a severe and often fatal gastroenteritis in cats. FPV is spread through the faeces, urine, saliva or vomit of infected cats and via contaminated surfaces like clothing or toys. Symptoms of FPV include diarrhea, lethargy, loss of appetite, fever, vomiting and dehydration.


Prevention of Feline Panleukopenia

AVA President Dr Paula Parker told RSPCA Victoria that the best way to keep your cat safe is to ensure they are up to date with their yearly F3 vaccination“Vaccination provides high immunity, which is why these recent confirmed cases of Panleukopenia are cause for concern – and action… We suggest all cats be routinely vaccinated each year with the F3 vaccination. Vaccines prevent your cat from becoming ill and help to stop the spread of disease.”


Keeping your cat confined to your house, property or outdoor cat enclosure, reduces the risk of exposure to this and other health issues such as worms, fleas and ticks and also risks from vehicles, cat fights and predators.


If your cat is showing any signs of illness please consult your vet immediately.
