Diagnostic test for Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIPV Ab) for cats

Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease that occurs worldwide in wild and domestic cats caused by certain strains of the feline coronavirus. Coronavirus infection is extremely widespread in cats, especially where large numbers of cats are kept together. It is estimated that 25–40% of household pet cats have been infected with the coronavirus (FCoV). FIP has two forms "wet" and "dry". Wet form symptoms: accumulation of the fluid in the abdomen or chest, lack of appetite, fever, weight loss and diarrhea. Dry form clinical signs: lack of appetite, jaundice, diarrhea, the eyes and the neurologic system are frequently affected, as well.
Unfortunately, there is no known cure or effective treatment for FIP at this time. Once clinical signs of FIP develop it is a fatal disease.
