How to treat FIP?

• Supportive care to cats in the dry form

The cats who are dealing with dry FIP can live for a few months if they are still eating, not developing neurological signs and don’t suffer from anemia. If you provide proper nutritious food to your cat then it will help your cat to recover within a few months.

• Drain fluid from cats with the wet form

Cats who are facing wet form usually don’t live as long as the cats with the dry form. To increase the life span of your cat you need to drain the fluid from the chest and abdomen of the cat. While draining the fluid there may be a loss in protein which can even make the condition worse.

• Give proper medication

The doctor will give you several antibiotics now it’s the duty of the owner to give all the medicines to the cat on time. The cats can’t speak and communicate to you so you have to take care of these animals properly.
