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 .

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
