What are the Causes of and Symptoms of Cat Infectious Peritonitis?
A cat will become infected through contaminated feces. Unfortunately, the virus can remain dormant for months or even years before signs and symptoms begin to show. This means that the cat can be a carrier of the virus and shed it through their feces, which in turn can infect other cats.
A cat who is suffering from cat Infectious Peritonitis may exhibit a fever that does not respond to antibiotics, along with weight loss and fatigue symptoms. For those who have the wet form of the virus, there is typically accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity and/or chest cavity, which causes difficulty in breathing. Cat's who have fluid in the abdomen show signs of abdominal distension.
