From Maevis 2/5/23: I MADE IT! My momma has tears in her eyes so I not only dictated this post, I had to write it myself. I made it to day 84 of observation! I am officially considered cured! From a very sick baby on Aug 26, 2022 who only weighed 3#2oz to today when my weigh in revealed I am 10#2oz. Without the help from so many including all of you here, I wouldn’t be alive to write this today. Thank you to the rescue that saved my life, Judge's Park. We had some struggles, but with the care and help of Companion Animal Veterinary Associates, LLC and everyone here, we made it through all of them. My momma has vowed to help others like me. We are starting a fund, in my name, to help offset some costs of treatment. It won’t be a lot in the beginning, but even a little bit helps. It will be part of Tanner's Endless Love, Inc, who works very hard to help the less fortunates, like me! Learn more about FIP in the What is FIP? section below.

  • Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease of cats caused by certain strains of a virus called the feline coronavirus. Most strains of feline coronavirus are found in the gastrointestinal tract and do not cause significant disease. These are referred to as feline enteric coronavirus (FeCV). Cats infected with FeCV usually do not show any symptoms during the initial viral infection, but may occasionally experience brief bouts of diarrhea and/or mild upper respiratory signs from which they recover spontaneously. FeCV-infected cats usually mount an immune response through which antibodies against the virus are produced within 7-10 days of infection. In approximately 10 percent of cats infected with FeCV, one or more mutations of the virus can alter its biological behavior, resulting in white blood cells becoming infected with virus and spreading it throughout the cat’s body. When this occurs, the virus is referred to as the FIPV. An intense inflammatory reaction to FIPV occurs around vessels in the tissues where these infected cells locate, often in the abdomen, kidney, or brain. It is this interaction between the body’s own immune system and the virus that is responsible for the development of FIP. Once a cat develops clinical FIP, the disease is usually progressive and almost always fatal without therapy that has recently become available, but that has yet to be approved to treat FIP in cats by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To our knowledge, coronaviruses cannot be passed from infected cats to humans.
