Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Good news! Feline calicivirus (FCV) is not a virus that can be spread to people. Therefore, you don't have to be worried that this is playing a role in your UTIs. Willow is innocent. If anything, you may be developing UTIs because you are immune suppressed, have a resistant bacterial infection that isn't being cleared, or that you may have an underlying issue making you prone to this type of infection. In any case and in regards ***** ***** question, neither Willow nor the FCV will be playing a role in your signs but you will want to see a doctor if you are struggling with UTIs yourself.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.

Thank you I am so glad that Willow isn't the cause of me having UTI's all the time. I love him and he loves me, he never leaves my side.I had a dream that he was, which is the reason why I contacted you.
