Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis Calicivirus Panleukopenia Rhinotracheitis- this herpes virus infection of cats is a highly contagious respiratory disease. Rhinotracheitis is characterized by sneezing, loss of appetite and eye inflammation. It is the most serious of the upper respiratory disease in cats and in advanced stages, produces a discharge from both the eyes and nose.
