Feline infectious peritonitis is a disease that individual veterinarians and veterinary practices may not see frequently. FIP is also complex with signs that can mimic other diseases and result in expensive diagnostic tests and uncertainty. To help veterinarians and their clients understand feline infectious peritonitis, we posed the most commonly asked questions to Dr. Niels C. Pedersen, one of the world’s experts on the disease. His answers can be found in a series of articles on the SOCK FIP website here.
Dr. Pedersen has also authored a recent summary of FIP research and findings (please be advised this article may contain graphic images):
