Peritonitis (FIP) affects cats and is lethal. Some believe it is the cause of Feline Infectious Peritonitis Virus (FIPV) which is a mutated form of Feline Enteric Coronavirus. The most common theory is that the normally benign FECV mutates into FIPV. This virus has the ability to invade and replicate in certain white blood cells. Due to immune response there is an inflammatory reaction in the tissues. Although fatal it is rare, it occurs roughly in one of every 5000 households. A nasally...

Coronavirus, a species in the genera of animal virus, belongs to the subfamily Coronavirinae in the family Coronaviridae. They are enveloped viruses with single-stranded RNA genome and a helical symmetry. The genome size ranges from 16 to 31 kilobases. The name, meaning crown, comes from the virus envelope appearing to be crowned when viewed under an electron microscopy. These viruses mainly infect the upper respiratory system and the gastrointestinal tract of mammals and birds. There...

Canine coronavirus, of the Coronaviridae family, is a virus that causes a highly contagious intestinal disease in dogs. It was discovered in 1971 in Germany during an outbreak in sentry dogs. It replicates in the villi of the small intestine. Intestinal disease can be related to virus-induced apoptosis of cells. Originally the virus was thought to be very severe but is now considered to be very mild. It can, however, be serious if the dog is also infected with canine parvovirus....
