There are many types of herpesvirus. Karposi sarcoma, HSV1, HSV2, chicken pox, mononucleousis are a few human herpes viruses. Nearly every species has a herpes virus, and most infections are non-issues, most of the time. Feline herpes infects nearly every single cat, and normally isnt an issue, but can flare up as eye infections and/or upper respiratory disease. Cattle have herpes, as well, and bovine herpes can flare up and potentially antagonize the respiratory epithelium enough to lead to the development of bovine respiratory disease in the infected. And, a bovine herpes virus can lead to spontaneous abortions. Worse case of bovine herpes I have heard of is an infection in the womb of a pregnant cow that kind of "ate away" at the lining of the womb and when the womb burst it killed the pregnant cow and her calf. Viruses rule the world, and herpes is everywhere.
