FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) in cats is fatal, without a cure or treatment it's the worst diagnosis for any cat owner to hear.
Hear Dr. Niels Pedersen. He's dedicated much of his career to socking FIP. Arguably, no one person on the planet understands this disease more. Dr. Pedersen answers questions about FIP for one-hour in part one (of two parts) devoted to FIP on my WLS-AM On Demand show,
Dr. Pedersen, director for the Center of Companion Animal Health at the University of California School of Veterinary Medicine, discusses potential treatments (LTCI , feline omega interferon, and others) and 'tests' for FIP, what may cause FIP and much more. It turns out FIP is more common than previously thought. Pedersen, who is now 66, says he's holding off retirement because he's excited about what he may still be able to do.
I asked questions you wanted me to ask, and others I thought you might ask.
Soon part-2 on WLS-AM On Demand with Dr. Diane Addie, another renowned researcher. I spoke with her from her home in France, and also on that show also Susan Gingrich, founder of the Winn Feline Foundation's Bria Fund.
Together, the most comprehensive conversation on FIP you will hear.
