Abstract: Feline Panleukopenia, a highly fatal viral disease of domestic and wild felids, is caused by Feline Panleukopania virus (FPV) that affects multiple system of the body. It is a single-stranded DNA virus that causes severe illness and death in young animals, specially puppies and kittens. The most prevalent mode of transmission for FPV is direct contact between susceptible animals and infected cats or their discharges. The FPV also remains infectious in the environment for months to years. The present study was performed to detect FPV through a commercial rapid Ag test kit. This procedure was carried out in Teaching and Training Pet Hospital and Research Center (TTPHRC), Purbachal, Dhaka on a six month aged non vaccinated cat from Bashundhara residential area which was showing symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, fever and anorexia. The sensitivity of the rapid Ag test kit used was over 99% (according to manufacturer). Using of such kind of test kits are less time consuming and within a short time the results can be observed. The cat was treated with fluids, antibiotics, antiemetic, anti secretory and amino acids along with multivitamins. FPL prevalence in pet cats is 7.5% in Bangladesh. The prevalence of FPL in Dhaka city is 7.50%. Very few published data are found in Bangladesh that use rapid Ag test kit for the diagnosis of FPL. A cross secional study over all the pet hospital is must need
