Cowpox virus infection in cats: ABCD guidelines on prevention and management


Abstract

OVERVIEW: The misnomer 'cowpox' has historical roots: cats rather acquire the virus from small rodents. It has a wide host spectrum (including man) and causes skin lesions, predominantly on the head and paws. Progressive proliferative ulcerations in kittens and immunosuppressed cats may take a fatal course. Cat owners should be informed about the zoonotic risk.
