Feline Infectious Peritonitis ‘FIP’

Internal Medicine | 64 mins

FIP is a devastating disease in cats, and until recently there was no treatment available. In 2019, US researchers published some ground breaking studies documenting that GS441524 was highly efficacious in treating FIP. Since then, there have been some concerning black market treatments available illegally via social media directly to owners. However, as of this year we now had 2 legal products available in the UK, both consisting of remdesivir which is the pro drug of GS441524. This will undoubtably revolutionise treatment and allow us for the first time to cure this previously fatal disease.

This webinar will focus on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment options available for feline FIP. We will also discuss the practicalities of using remdesivir and how to monitor patients and make the treatment process as smooth as possible.
