FIP: Feline Infectious Peritonitis

Feline Infectious Peritonitis is an infectious disease caused by a Corona Virus and has two stages.  In the primary stage, infected kittens generally show only a mild respiratory infection from which they usually recover.  These kittens usually become carriers and infect other cats with the disease.  Some infected kittens develop the second stage of the disease, which affects other organs and is always fatal.  Kittens that are in multi-cat households, frequently boarded, or those with Feline Leukemia are at a much greater risk to contract this disease.

Signs of FIP

  • Upper respiratory disease
  • Weight loss
  • Lethargy
  • Anemia
  • Vomiting/Diarrhea
  • Death

Your kitten should receive their first FIP vaccination at 12 weeks and then boostered in 3-4 weeks for full immunity.  Your kitten will then be boostered once yearly after that.
