    I was researching some medications and found this article mentioning
    Feline herpes associated dermatitis

    Treatment of feline herpesvirus-1 associated disease in cats with famciclovir and related drugs. - PubMed - NCBI

    I never knew the Feline herpes virus (FHV-1) can be associated with skin issues / dermatitis .

    http://dermatologyforanimals.com/faq/FelineHerpesvirus-Dermatitis.pdf


    Something to ask your vet about if your kitty has a skin issue with unknown origin .

    My vet shared the test for feline herpes can give false results

    (My vet did not push the feline herpes test when dealing with an eye inflammation treated with famciclivor )

    Just wanted to pass it on
