Feline Infectious Peritonitis
Description: FIP - Feline infectious peritonitis is a viral infection caused by a certain strain of the feline coronavirus (called the Feline Infectious Peritonitis Virus) which invades white blood cells and leads to an inflammatory response. It is more prominent among cats with weaker immune systems such as kittens, older cats, and cats affected by the feline leukemia virus.
Symptoms: Symptoms may not appear until the disease has significantly progressed and they include sneezing, wheezing, diarrhea, and nasal discharge.
Treatment: Though there is no current cure, some medications may alleviate symptoms. The disease is usually fatal.
