Dr. Weigner talks about a recent study from legendary researcher Dr. Niels Pedersen showing cats are surviving feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). FIP has always been considered a fatal disease, but it appears this could change. Interestingly, a similar drug that helps people with HIV/AIDS may be responsible for treating, or even curing, FIP.
We also talk about how cats mask illness. And what to look for in your cat as a signal of possible illness.
Dr. Weigner answers listener questions about an over-grooming cat and also a cat with hyperthyroid disease.
