FIP FAQs: Common Cat FIP Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment Methods

Do cats with FIP eat?

What To Feed A Cat With FIP. It is imperative to keep your cat eating, or he/she will be at risk of fatty liver disease. Cats need at least 200 calories per day. Inappetence is often one of the first symptoms to appear with FIP cats.


What can I feed my cat with FIP?

Feed cats with FIP a little red meat every day.

It is important that the meat or liver come from free-range animals because they will have eaten grass which is rich in omega 3.


Can steroids help a cat with FIP?

As FIP is an immune-mediated disease, treatment is mainly aimed at controlling the immune response triggered by the infection with the feline coronavirus (FCoV). Immune suppressive drugs such as prednisone or cyclophosphamide may slow disease progression but do not produce a cure.


Is there a vaccine for FIP?

The Task Force lists the feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) vaccine as not generally recommended. This vaccine is labeled for administration from 16 weeks of age, whereas many kittens become infected with coronaviruses well before this age. It also contains a serotype II strain of FIP virus.


What are the treatment options for FIP in cats?

Cats with FIP treated with remdesivir typically improve clinically over the first 2-3 days. The anecdotal evidence of cats treated with remdesivir and GS-441524 says that around 80-95% of cats are successfully treated.


How long does it take to cure FIP?

One of the most difficult decisions is to determine when to stop treatment. Although some cats, often younger ones with wet FIP, can be cured in as little as 8 weeks and possibly sooner, the usual treatment time is 12 weeks. Some cats may even require dosage adjustments and even longer treatment periods.
