“Killer cat virus” kills hundreds of cats in Saginaw county
The name of the “killer virus” which already killed more than 800 cats: Panleukopenia virus, a parvovirus which is included in the regular vaccination protocols for cats. And so Mark Wachner, director of the Animal Care Center, says that this was a preventable viral outbreak.

`This could be prevented with just normal vaccinations,` Wachner said.

`Cats are among the most neglected domestic animals in the country,` adding that they also need regular exams.

Dr. Nancy Frank, acting state veterinarian, said panleukopenia mostly affects kittens, because their immune systems aren`t strong enough to ward off the disease. `It usually shows up in animal shelters, where there are a lot of stray cats brought in without their shots,` Frank said. `In a kitten, it can wipe out 98 percent of the cells in a 24-hour period. It`s really quick,` said Ellen Newton, a veterinarian assistant at the center.

Animal health officials are urging pet owners to keep cats indoors.
