A secondary infection can exacerbate this condition, such as bacteria. The aim of this study to find out the diagnostic technique and the FPV detection method using the FPV antigen test kit. On August 2nd, 2021, the cat was brought to Griya Fauna Mojokerto with severe flu. In addition, based on the information, the cat has decreased appetite. The physical examination results that the temperature was 39.5 °C, bodyweight of 2.9 kg, and the cat looked weak when observed.
