Resumo: Feline Calicivirus (FCV) is an important and widespread virus of the feline population. As a member of the Caliciviridae family, FCV mutates readily in nature, and this has resulted in the recent emergence of a highly virulent haemorrhagic systemic strain. Despite the increased concern about this feline pathogen, little is still known on potential FCV virucidal compounds. On the other hand several experiments on the inactivation behaviour of various surface disinfectants have used FCV as a surrogate to monitor norovirus survival in order to minimize their impact on public health. This has led to a considerable number of studies generating a huge amount of data on FCV inactivation. These findings are presented here and may be useful to veterinary nurses who can improve their practice by minimizing FCV transmission.
