Chlamydia felis and feline herpesvirus (FHV-1) are common pathogens of cats’ eyes all around the world producing a wide variety of ocular diseases from mild conjunctivitis to blinding keratitis or symblepharon. In this session, we will discuss how we reach an aetiological diagnosis and talk about the latest in antichlamydial and antiviral therapies. Is there a good PCR test? Should I be submitting samples? Do I need to quarantine affected cats? Should I use a topical or systemic antiviral drug? How frequently? For how long? Do I also need to use antibiotics? Is lysine effective?
