This episode dives in to Feline Parvo Virus (FPV). Known by other names such as feline distemper, feline plague and feline infectious enteritis, I prefer FPV. This is a serious contagious and infectious disease of cats primarily infecting kittens and unvaccinated or partially vaccinted cats. It is ubiquitous and worldwide. Cats are less likely to survive a serious infection than dogs, by 50%. Recovered or vaccinated cats have lifelong immunity. I have posted several links below for further reading.
