Herpetic keratitis

A keratitis is an inflammation of the cornea.

A herpetic keratitis is a breach of the cornea by the herpesvirus.

The herpesvirus of the cat is different than of man (even though they present some common characteristics).

The feline herpesvirus cannot be transmitted to men.

Herpetic keratitis can be associated to a corneal ulcer which can be more or less serious.

The treatment consists in antiviral products and antibiotics.

An appointment with your vet is necessary.
