Although a wide range of viral and bacterial agents may be responsible for this disorder, one of the most common--perhaps the most common--cause is infection with feline herpesvirus (FHV).
About 80 percent of feline upper respiratory infections are caused by either of two viruses: feline herpesvirus (FHV), also known as feline rhinotracheitis virus (FRV); and feline calicivirus (FCV).
Many other feline eye diseases are attributable to viruses, bacteria and fungal organisms that specifically target cats--such as the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), the feline leukemia virus (FeLV), the feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIP), feline herpesvirus (FHP), toxoplasma (a parasitic organism) and cryptococcus (a yeastlike fungus commonly found in soil).
