Hi Carrington, thanks for your question.When you adopted them and they warned you about herpes, did they offer you any paperwork to support this?Cats are commonly exposed and have herpes, but the only way we can be sure that's what they have (and not something else) is to run an upper respiratory PCR panel on them. A lot of times, cats actually have more than one virus or bacteria that contribute to upper respiratory problems and I'll be happy to expand upon that in my reply. If a PCR panel was done, you'd have some paperwork showing this. Do you?
