  1. FHV-1 can be successfully treated with drops consisting of a water based solution of 2% azithromycin antibiotic and 2% Voltaren. But this must be applied as early as possible ideally within the first 24 hours of the infection appearing. Oral 500 mg of azithromycin is also effective. 200 mg in the case of a small kitten. Sorry, but you can’t get any such drops from your vet. You have to make them up yourself, but your Vet can administer the oral azithromycin. The diluted Voltaren prevents tissue damage to the eye. Do not use full strength Voltaren.

    • One slight problem — antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections, not viruses. Antibiotics do nothing to stop a virus from reproducing or being spread further. Anyone taking any medical advice from this website gets what they paid for, and truly deserves it.

      • I don’t think he is saying that you bloody pest. He is saying that viral infections lead to secondary infections and this is both a preventative measure and a possible cure because it is hard to distinguish between viral and bacterial infections in cats as they merge (viral leads to bacterial). Vets often administer antibiotics under these circumstances. So piss off you arrogant idiot. “The Fact Police” – my arse.
