Coronavirus in cats is known for two diseases that cause these viruses: feline infectious peritonitis and feline coronavirus enteritis. Coronavirus enteritis (feline enteric coronavirus, FECV) and infectious peritonitis virus (feline infectious peritonitis virus FIPV), as we know, are related strains of the same virus. Man they are completely harmless.
FECV infects most often the mucous membrane of the small intestine of cats and can cause diarrhea, diarrhea. Most perceive this virus kittens after one or two months of life. The disease usually starts with vomiting, then in diarrhoea, which lasts 2-4 days, after which recovery occurs.
