Audrey Laverty - Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)

For more than 25 years, Morris Animal Foundation has funded research
to find ways to save the lives of cats diagnosed with feline infectious
peritonitis (FIP), a fatal viral disease. FIP continues to be one of the most
prevalent and complex feline infectious diseases worldwide, without any
definitive diagnostics, treatments or preventions. It also is a threat to both
domestic and wild cats with a 100% mortality rate.
FIP is a fatal disease in kittens, young cats and immunocompromised cats. The FIP virus usually develops in cats under the age of 3. Healthy siblings of a kitten that has developed FIP are at a five-fold increased risk for developing FIP within the first 9
months of life.

Morris Animal Foundation is a nonprofit organization that funds science to advance the health of animals around the world. Since its founding in 1948, the Foundation has invested over $155 million in more than 2,700 studies that have led to significant breakthroughs in diagnostics, treatments and preventions to benefit animals worldwide. Please help me support advancing the health of animals everywhere by contributing to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your friends and family. Every dollar we raise will advance this great cause!

Ask how you can get involved, and together, we can make a difference in the lives of animals!
