Abstract

Feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV) and canine Coronavirus (CCV) are serologically closely related viruses with at least some genome sequence homology (Pedersen et al, 1978; Horzinek et al, 1982; Shockley et al, 1987). They are distinguished mainly by their host species of origin, and there are also some accounts of minor or one-way serological differences between the two groups (e.g. Pedersen et al, 1978). However some strains, at least, of CCV can infect cats (Barlough et al, 1984; Stoddart et al, 1988) and it is not Known how consistent the serological differences are when applied to a large number of canine and feline isolates.
