FIP Diagnosis No Longer Fatal; Downward Dog for Real on WGN Radio
Dr. Brian Holub, chief medical officer at VetCor and Scientific Advisory Board member as well as a Director on the Board of the EveryCat Health Foundation explains HERE on WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World that feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) which had always been considered fatal can now be treated and often cured. This is due greatly due to funding from the EveryCat Health Foundation and decades of work by Dr. Niels Pedersen, now professor emeritus University of California Davis College of Veterinary Medicine.
This is a great time for feline medicine, as the American Association of Feline Practitioners in conjunction with the EveryCat Health Foundation published all new guidelines for dealing with (FIP). This document, called 2022 AAFP/EveryCat Feline Infectious Peritonitis Diagnosis Guidelines and free to all: 2022 Feline Infectious Peritonitis Diagnosis Guidelines
In 2019, the Winn Feline Foundation (now called EveryCat Health Foundation) held a ground-breaking symposium at University of California, Davis which kicked off with Pedersen – and included most of those worldwide who had studied the disease and changed the designation of FIP from fatal to treatable. In 2021 another symposium, Health Breakthroughs for EveryCat: FIP and Beyond, held in July at University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, Gainesville helped to confirm that treatments offered online via the black market do greatly work and generally can suffice until the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine approves a drug in the waiting to treat FIP.
Dr. Holub explains how developing a treatment for this cat disease is actually today helping humans with COVID19 with a drug called Remdesivir.
