Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) a severe and often fatal disease in cats, said that is a high ranking of criticle disease in Cat, this disease can significantly shorten their lifespan if left untreated. However, there's hope: FIP can now be cured.

Treatment and the Possibility of Relapse

While FIP is curable with modern antiviral medications, it's important to address the underlying causes of stress and immune suppression in your cat to prevent relapse. If the factors that initially triggered FIP are not addressed, the disease can return.

Current Treatment Options

Two primary antiviral medications are used to treat FIP:

  1. Injectable GS-441524(*Highly Recommend): This antiviral has been used for several years and has shown promising results in long-term studies, with many cats returning to normal lives after treatment. This method is highest cure rate up to 97% for FIP cat without overlapping disease. Learn more about How to treat FIP with GS-441524

  2. Oral Molnupiravir: A newer treatment option, Molnupiravir, has shown potential but lacks long-term research data, as its use only began in 2023. Suitable for first stage of FIP wet form.

The choice between these medications depends on the severity of your cat's symptoms. For mild cases, Molnupiravir may be effective. However, GS-441524 is often preferred due to its established track record andbetter absorption by the body compared to oral medications, which can be split or mixed with food, affecting the dose accuracy.

Beyond Antivirals: Supportive Care

While antivirals suppress the virus, additional supportive care is essential to address FIP-related complications like anemia and inflammation. This may include blood transfusions, liver support, and draining fluid buildup in the lungs if breathing becomes difficult.

FIP: A Battle, Not a War

Think of FIP like COVID-19 in humans. Even with vaccination and boosters, we can still contract COVID-19, but the symptoms are often less severe. Similarly, FIP treatment involves antiviral medication and supportive care to manage symptoms until the cat's immune system clears the virus. The choice between injectable and oral antivirals depends on your cat's response. If oral medication doesn't show improvement within 7 days especially cat with liver issue, switching to the injectable form may be necessary due to its superior absorption and precise dosing.
