How Viral Rhinotracheitis Spreads
How Long Can The Virus Live?
When is Viral Rhinotracheitis Contagious?
Can Viral Rhinotracheitis infect other animals or humans?
Luckily, viral rhinotracheitis is only a risk to cats. Just as human herpesvirus 1 & 2 cannot spread to other animals, neither can this one spread to you or your dog. However, some cases of what appears to be viral rhinotracheitis may, in fact, be a bacterial upper respiratory infection that is actually contagious to humans or other animals, so make sure to always wash your hands after handling infected cats or objects.
