Wondering how common is feline herpesvirus is in kittens? My Birman kitten (now 8 months old) always has dried discharge in the corner of her eyes and sometimes slightly on her bottom edge of her eye and my vet said that it is most likely feline herpesvirus. I was told that this is common in catteries. I'm considering getting another kitten from some place but want to make sure that I have all the correct info first. Thank you for help.
