What's Feline Infectious Peritonitis(FIP)? Can FIP be cured?

Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease that caused by a type of virus called coronavirus, which tends to attack the cells of the intestinal wall.

In 1970, the coronavirus that causes FIP was isolated and characterized. In 1981, another coronavirus was isolated. Although this virus is nearly identical to the FIP virus, cats who were infected with it developed only very mild diarrhea and recovered easily.

FIP usually occurs in young cats (0-2 years old) and older cats. About 70% of the cats show in a effusive (wet) form and 30% of them show in a non-effusive (dry) form.

FIP was fatal in more than 95 percent of cases. In mild cases of the dry form, it may be possible to prolong the survival period, but most cats with the wet form of the disease die within two months of the onset of signs. Fortunately,  As of February 2019, FIP is no more fatal!  Thousands of cats have used GS441 from China and have been clinically cured of feline infectious peritonitis.  GS441 has effectively cured wet FIP, dry FIP, ocular and neurological FIP.  GS441 comes in both oral and injectable form. The treatment protocol calls for 12 weeks of daily administration of the drug. Most cats see significant improvement of physical symptoms within the first 1-3 days, but require the full course of treatment to fully eradicate the virus.
