Feline Infectious Peritonitis Prevention

Feline Infectious Peritonitis Prevention

I am not sure is there is something in this but it seems that Feline Infectious Peritonitis prevention may be possible by eliminating external stresses. Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) can, it seems, be triggered when the normally benign corona virus in the cat’s gut mutates due to external pressures. The external stresses damage the immune system putting it out of balance. The mutated virus causes FIP by tricking the cat’s damaged immune system to attack the cat itself rather than protecting the cat.

Some of the stresses placed on young cats can be avoided. A list of possible stressors could be as follows:

  1. Toxins in commercial cat
    food (such as alfalfa, garlic, yucca, rosemary and

    other herbs)

  2. Poor cat food not containing
    enough protein
  3. Sudden change in diet
  4. Vaccinations including combo
    vaccinations (this occurs to young vulnerable cats)
  5. Vaccinations in combination
    with neutering/spaying (this occurs to young vulnerable cats)
  6. Emotional stresses such as
    weaning before 3 months old
  7. Changing routine: changing
  8. Bullying by another cat in a
    stressed household
  9. Air Travel
  10. Being caged
  11. Being left out or put out in
    severe weather
  12. Veterinarian procedures

This list is not complete. Apparently, most cases of FIP occur in kittens who have undergone three or more stressors or for that matter older cats suffering from stress. Feline Infectious Peritonitis prevention would then seem possible if we managed the stresses better. It would seem to be in our hands, which is often the case.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
