Dealing with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) can be a heart-wrenching experience for any cat owner. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the complexities of FIP, share a story from Malaysia about one of FIP Fighter, and provide a medication tracking template to assist those navigating their feline’s FIP journey.
What is FIP?
Feline Infectious Peritonitis, or FIP, is a devastating disease that affects cats worldwide. It comes in two forms: wet and dry. While FIP is caused by the feline coronavirus, not all cats with the virus develop the disease.
Causes of FIP:
FIP occurs when the feline coronavirus mutates within the cat’s body, leading to an inflammatory response that can damage various organs.
Symptoms of FIP:
The symptoms of FIP can vary, but common signs include fever, weight loss, lethargy, and more specific indicators for wet and dry forms.
Diagnosing FIP involves a combination of clinical signs, laboratory tests, and imaging to establish the presence of the disease.
One promising option is the Basmi FIP protocol, which combines antiviral drugs and immunomodulators. Reported success rates have reached 89%, offering hope to cats diagnosed with FIP.
