Don't Panic! Here's What to Do When Your Cat Shows FIP Symptoms

Watching a beloved cat experience health problems can trigger panic and anxiety for the owner. Suddenly uncharacteristic health situations in cats often make owners feel anxious. However, it's important to know that quick and appropriate action is key in dealing with these situations.

One of the things that Cat Pawrents often panic about is the FIP Virus in cats. Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a disease with a high risk of death caused by the Feline Coronavirus (FCoV) or better known as the Corona Virus in cats. There are several signs or symptoms that cat owners should be aware of regarding this FIP virus.

FIP Symptoms in Cats

FIP symptoms in cats can vary, depending on the type of FIP encountered. Wet FIP, which is more common, is identified by fluid accumulation in the abdomen or chest, with symptoms including weight loss, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea and difficulty breathing.

Common symptoms of FIP in cats include:

  • Fever

  • Lethargy

  • Loss of appetite

  • Significant weight loss

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Enlarged cat belly (wet FIP)

  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice)

  • Anemia

Steps to Take When Your Cat Has FIP Virus

If your cat is showing any of these symptoms, it is important to act quickly and appropriately. Delaying action may worsen the cat's condition. Here's a step-by-step guide to managing FIP symptoms in your cat.

Consult a Veterinarian

The first step is to consult a veterinarian. An accurate diagnosis is essential before starting treatment. The vet will conduct a thorough examination and a series of laboratory tests to determine whether or not your cat has FIP. If FIP is diagnosed, then the doctor will determine the correct dosage of GS-441524.

Consultation and Ordering of GS-441524 through Eradicate FIP

After getting a diagnosis and prescription from your veterinarian, the next step is to get GS-441524 as soon as possible. Currently, Basmi FIP provides GS-441524, a treatment that has shown more than 87% efficacy in treating FIP. The Basmi FIP team will be happy to assist you in the process of treating your cat until it is cured. The FIP virus multiplies very quickly, making it important to start treatment immediately. 

Drug Administration in FIP Cats

GS-441524 is available in two forms: injection or oral capsules. The method and dose of administration will be adjusted based on your cat's weight and type of FIP. It is important to strictly follow your veterinarian's instructions and not change the dosage or medication schedule without veterinary approval.

Extra Care and Attention

During the treatment process, it is important that you give your cat extra care and attention. Make sure they get a nutritious diet, enough rest, and live in a stress-free environment. Avoid feeding your cat foods or supplements that contain Lysine and some other foods or supplements that are not recommended

Monitoring your cat's progress

Monitoring your cat's health and progress throughout the treatment period is very important. Perform blood tests on days 30, 60 and 84 of treatment to monitor the effectiveness of the drug and adjust treatment if necessary.

With GS-441524 as a FIP treatment, cat owners have more hope. Quick action, proper medication and meticulous care can increase a cat's chances of recovery. Collaboration with your veterinarian ensures your cat gets the best care in the face of FIP.

If your pet cat is showing symptoms of FIP, take them to your nearest veterinarian immediately for proper diagnosis and treatment.
