Companion Animals

Cats

Cats are very susceptible to virus diseases, especially when kept in catteries or allowed to roam in areas frequented by feral cats.

 

The two most common diseases are viral diseases causing severe infections of the upper respiratory tract;

 

Feline calicivirus                Hydrophilic RNA virus

Feline viral rhinotracheitis             Hydrophilic DNA virus                                                

 

Other significant virus diseases infecting cats are;

 

Feline Distemper, (Feline Infectious Enteritis) caused by the Feline panleukopenia virus, a hydrophilic DNA parvovirus,

Rabies, caused by a lipophilic RNA rhabdovirus.

 

Cats are also susceptible to;

Feline chlamydia caused by chlamydia felis, a gram- bacteria,

Ringworm caused by the Microsporium canis fungus,

Ringworm caused by Trichophyton mentagrophytes fungus.

 

These and other feline diseases caused by viruses, bacteria and M. canis fungus are easily destroyed by Omnicide at a dilution of 1:150. Omnicide must be diluted to 1:50 to disinfect housing and equipment contaminated by Trichophyton mentagrophytes. See the disease pathogen control chart for comprehensive information on specific disease identity and Omnicide dilution rates.

 

  1. Rabies and Ringworm are zoonotic diseases which may be passed from cats to their human owners.

 

Dogs

Dogs are susceptible to a range of easily transmittable diseases which they pick up in kennels, from dog to dog encounters and from dog urine and faeces found in the environment.

 

Virus diseases

Distemper, is caused by a highly contagious airborne lipophilic RNA paramyxovirus

Parvovirus, a deadly contagious hydrophilic DNA virus which is spread through contact with infected faecal matter.

Hepatitis, caused by a hydrophilic DNA adenovirus.

Kennel cough, caused by the lipophilic RNA Canine parainfluenza virus (an orthomyxovirus)

Rabies, caused by a lipophilic RNA rhabdovirus.

 

Bacterial diseases

Leptospirosis, caused by a gram- leptospira bacteria

Kennel cough, caused by a gram- Bordetella bronchiseptica bacteria

 

Fungal diseases

Ringworm caused by the Microsporium canis fungus,

Ringworm caused by Trichophyton mentagrophytes fungus.

 

These and other canine diseases caused by viruses, bacteria and M. canis fungus are easily destroyed by Omnicide at a dilution of 1:150. Omnicide must be diluted to 1:50 to disinfect housing and equipment contaminated by Trichophyton mentagrophytes. See the disease pathogen control chart for comprehensive information on specific disease identity and Omnicide dilution rates.
