Fenine Coronavirus (FCoV) is a virus that affects the intestinal tract of Cats. It causes a gastroenteritis similar to  parvo.  FCoV  is  the  second  leading  viral cause of diarrhea in Cats with canine Parvovirus  (CPV)  being  the leader. Unlike CPV, FCoV infections are not generally associated with high death rates. .

FCoV is a single stranded RNA type of virus with  a  fatty  protective  coating. Because the virus  is  covered  in  a  fatty  membrane,  it  is relatively easily inactivated with detergent and solvent-type disinfectants. It  is spread by virus shedding in the feces of infected dogs. The most common route of infection is contact with fecal material containing the virus. Signs begin to show 1-5 days after exposure. The dog becomes a “carrier” for several weeks after recovery. The virus can live in the environment for  several months. Clorox mixed at a rate of 4 ounces in a gallon of water will destroy the virus.


The  primary  symptom  associated  with  FCoV  is  diarrhea.   As  with most infectious diseases, young puppies are more affected than adults. Unlike FPV, vomiting is not common. The diarrhea tends to be less profuse than  that associated with FPV infections. The clinical signs of FCoV vary from   mild and undetectable to severe and fatal. Most common signs include: depression, fever, loss of appetite, vomiting,  and  diarrhea.  The  diarrhea can be watery, yellowish-orange in color, bloody, mucoid, and usually has an offensive odor. Sudden death and abortions sometimes occur. The duration  of illness can be anywhere from 2-10 days. Although FCoV is generally thought of as a milder cause of diarrhea than FPV, there is  absolutely  no way to differentiate the two without laboratory testing. Both FPV and FCoV cause the same appearing diarrhea with an identical odor. The diarrhea associated with FCoV usually lasts several days with low mortality. To complicate the diagnosis, many puppies with a severe intestinal upset (enteritis) are affected by both FCoV and  FPV simultaneously.  Mortality rates in puppies simultaneously infected may approach 90 percent


As with Fenine FPV, there is no specific treatment for FCoV. It is very important to keep the patient, especially puppies, from developing dehydration. Water must be force fed or specially prepared fluids can be administered under the skin (subcutaneously) and/or intravenously to prevent dehydration. Vaccines are available to protect puppies and adults of all ages against FCoV. In areas  where  FCoV  is  prevalent,  dogs  and  puppies should remain current on FCoV vaccinations beginning at or about six weeks of age. Sanitation with commercial  disinfectants  is  highly effective and should  be  practiced  in  breeding,  grooming,  kennel  housing, and hospital situations.


Avoiding dog to dog contact or contact with objects that are contaminated with the virus prevents infection. Crowding, dirty facilities, grouping large numbers of dogs, and all types of stress make outbreaks of this disease more likely. Enteric Coronavirus are moderately stabile in heat acids and disinfectants but not nearly so much as Parvovirus.
