Tag: FIP

Check out my Veterinary Definitions and Resources page for useful veterinary definitions and resources to help understand the terms used in explanations of FIP diagnosis and treatment.

I’m also documenting my cat’s FIP treatment journey, and have included a lot of information in those posts. You can find all of those posts on Athena’s tag page.

I Wish I’d Known This Before FIP Treatment

Posted in Cat

When Athena was diagnosed with FIP, Jim and I had no information about what to do or expect. With research, we’ve learned a lot, but there are things I wish I’d known before starting her treatment, both to spare her some trouble and to better prepare myself.

Please note: At the time of writing, I do not have any experience with the oral (pill) form of treatment. It looks like we’ll be starting oral treatment soon, so I may have some “lessons learned” a bit further on.

FIP – A Straightforward Compendium

com·pen·di·um [ kuhm-pen-dee-uhm ], noun: a brief treatment or account of a subject, especially an extensive subject; concise treatise

Like my previous post about Athena’s road to diagnosis, this post will be more technical. I’ve done my best to link to highly technical information — rather than include it in the text — in an attempt to make this more “readable.” Where I’m unable to easily link to the information, or when I have to use medical terms that don’t have a plain language equivalent, I’ve provided explanations through [def] (definition) links.
