【Attention! Those who keep several cats please look here!】
It is more risky for cats to be infected by Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) in multi-cat families. FIP is a deadly infectious disease caused by a virus which is mutated by the Feline Enteric Coronavirus in the cat’s intestines. Why is it more easily to have this disease in multi-cat families? It is because the virus could be spread through excretions such as mouth, respiratory secretions and excrement. Furthermore, the infected cats would be prone to other immunosuppressive diseases, such as Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) infection and Feline AIDS (FIV), etc.
5 tips to minimize the risk:
- Keep your home clean.
- Pay attention to the cleanliness of the litter box to avoid spreading through the feces and urine.
- Keep the infected cat apart from other healthy cats and seek medical advice as soon as possible.
- Conduct blood test regularly.
- Provide nutritional supplements to boost the immunity of cats.
Let’s provide a healthy, safe and warm living environment for our lovely cats!
