Apollo was a little kitten that was diagnosed with FIP and sadly died less than two months after he arrived in his new home. It’s a very sad story but It’s something that I think we all need to be made aware of.

Cats with weak immune systems are most likely to develop the disease.
The most common transmission occurs when infected female cats pass along the virus to their kittens, usually when the kittens are between five and eight weeks of age.

Can FIP be treated?
Unfortunately, there is no known cure. FIP is a fatal disease. Treatment is generally aimed at supportive care, such as good nursing care and nutrition, and alleviating the inflammatory response of the disease. Cats with FIP are often treated with corticosteroids, cytotoxic drugs, and antibiotics. Supportive care may also include fluid therapy, draining accumulated fluids, and blood transfusions.
