The risk of typical and antibody enhanced feline infectious peritonitis among cats from feline coronavirus endemic households



The risk of typical and antibody enhanced feline infectious peritonitis among cats from feline coronavirus endemic households



Feline Practice 23(3): 24-26



A cohort of 820 cats from among 73 households in the UK was followed for a period of 6 years between 1988 and 1994. All of these households were known to contain some feline coronavirus (FCoV) seropositive cats. The incidence of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) among these animals was 4.8% during the first 36 months. FIP deaths were highest during the first 6 months after seroconversion, plateaued at a lower level for the next 6 months, and were insignificant thereafter.
