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:
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.

This must be all about patient training and it sort of proves that cats can…
Yes, of course it is. However it is a question worth asking if for no…
