Feline Herpes Virus
FVR is also known as feline influenza and feline coryza. It is very contagious and can be severe (fatal). This disease is not confined to domestic cats but can infect the big cats as well.
"Rhino" means the nose - "tracheitis" means inflammation of the trachea. The trachea is the tube that runs from the larynx to where it branches into each lung. Accordingly Rhinotracheitis means an inflammation of the nose and trachea caused by a viral (a virus) infection.
