We are thrilled to announce our first patient ever has been officially cured of Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). This is a fatal disease usually in young cats caused by a mutated coronavirus (yup similar to human Covid but not the same virus). Percy became very very sick last year and although his diagnosis was straight forward but sometimes the disease is more complex and comes in many forms. FIP has always been terminal for cats in the past.
Thanks to the human COVID-19 pandemic there have been huge advances in human anti-viral medications that have now given us the tools to treat FIP in cats. Treatment involves daily injections or capsules for many months. And a very committed owner!
Treatment is costly and challenging but the cure rates are very high and we are so thrilled to have helped this wee boy to get the life he deserves. He was a rescue kitten but is so very loved.
