Feline coronavirus (FCoV) infection is common in domestic cat populations worldwide, with antibodies present in 80-90% of cats in catteries and in 10-50% of cats in single-cat households. Most infections are subclinical or manifested by a mild, self-limiting gastroenteritis that usually produces diarrhea.
