  • What Gs Brand Do You Sell?
    Our company's brand is Meron. It contains identical active ingredients as competing brands. All GS treatment compounds are produced in China, and the majority of distributors use the same formula. To make their businesses more distinguishable, different businesses label the vials with their own brand name. While there are many GS treatments available online, most of them are simply the same product sold under different brand names.
  • Does Fip Treatment Have Any Side Effects?
    While GS-441524 has been shown to be effective in treating feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), it is important for owners to be aware of its potential side effects before before beginning their cat's treatment. Some common GS-441524 side effects are listed below: Skin Lesions and Burns: Due to the acidity of the injectable solution, skin lesions and burns may occur. You can avoid this by always cleaning the cat's skin after giving an injection. Injection Site Sores: If the injection site is not changed, sores can form.If you notice any sores forming at the injection site, you should wipe them gently with sterile cotton balls soaked in a 1:5 solution of home hydrogen peroxide at least four times a day. Kidney Damage: Higher doses of GS-441524 may cause temporary kidney damage, but this will not result in kidney disease. Blood work will reveal this if it occurs, and your veterinarian will be able to provide supportive care. Anemia and Liver Problems: Cats with FIP often have anemia, which can worsen during the first two to three weeks of treatment. In addition, liver issues are common during this time, so keeping a close eye on the cat is essential. Pain at Injection Sites: Pain at the injection sites is the most common complication of GS therapy, however its severity varies from cat to cat and with the skill of the person administering the injections (usually the owner). Oral Gabapentin given prior to injection has been shown to reduce injection pain. Systemic Vasculitis-type Medication Responses: Some cats have had reactions to medications that are similar to systemic vasculitis, which can be misdiagnosed as injection site reactions. However this is rare. Despite these potential side effects, GS-441524 has been shown to be well-tolerated by most cats receiving injections. Most cats tolerate the procedure well and do not require sedatives or medication for pain relief. If the medication is administered correctly and on time, your cat should begin to feel better within a few days, with no serious side effects.
  • Why is GS-441524 not FDA Approved?
    Even though GS-441524 was shown to be effective against FIP, the company that owns the patent, Gilead Sciences, won't let veterinarians in the U.S. use the formula.
  • How to Get Started with FIP Treatment for Your Cat
    It can be scary to start FIP treatment for your cat, but with these easy steps, you can start with confidence and improve your cat's chances of getting better. Step 1: Determine the Appropriate Dosage for Your Cat's Condition: The first step is to determine the appropriate dosage for your cat's condition. To do this, you'll need to know your cat's weight and suspected FIP type. If you're unsure about the FIP type, read "How to Recognize FIP Symptoms and Determine GS Dosage for Your Cat" for guidance. Visit our FIP Сalculator page to calculate the recommended daily dose and how many days one vial should last. Step 2: Order Enough to Get Started: After determining the appropriate dosage, visit our Gs Injection Treatment page and select the amount of vials your cat will need for 7-14 days of daily injections. Don't order more than 5 vials if you're just starting, and consider upgrading to express shipping if your cat hasn't received any treatment yet. Step 3: Learn and Prepare: While you wait for the treatment to arrive, it's important to read the treatment guidelines and order syringes. Downloadable PDF files containing additional treatment suggestions and advice will be emailed to you. Administer the first injection at a veterinary office and ask your veterinarian for training on how to inject. Step 4: Monitor Your Cat's Progress: Monitor your cat's progress throughout the treatment and follow the dosage instructions carefully. If you don't notice any improvements after 3-4 days, get in touch with us so we can figure out what to do next.
  • What is FIP?
    Feline Infectious Peritonitis, or FIP, is a severe, viral, and usually fatal disease of cats that is caused by a feline coronavirus (FCoV). -FIP causes inflammation in tissue blood vessels. Usually in the belly, kidney, or brain. -FIP is caused by immune system-virus interaction. -FIP can affect cats of any age or gender, but it's most common in kittens 6 months to 2 years old. There are two types of forms: Wet (effusive) and dry (non-effusive). However, both wet and dry traits are often present to some degree. -The wet form is easy to spot because fluid builds up in the chest and belly. -In the dry form, inflammatory cells begin to accumulate in a variety of organs, including the liver, kidneys, eyes, and brain. Wet and dry features frequently coexist. Before GS-441524 was found, there was no treatment for FIP. We can't promise it will save your cat, but there is a high chance it will. When administered correctly, the medication we offer has been demonstrated to be both safe and effective. A majority of owners (88.2%) said that their cat's clinical symptoms improved significantly one week after starting continued treatment.
  • Can cats be cured of FIP?
    In recent years, FIP has gone from being fatal and incurable. GS-441524 may be an effective FIP treatment, according to various lab and client studies. There have been no long-term studies on how antiviral drugs used to treat FIP affect cats' health, but there have also been no reports of long-term negative side effects from the treatment. In these studies, GS-441524 helped the majority of the cats, but ocular and neurological forms are more difficult to treat because it cannot cross the blood-brain and blood-eye barriers. As a result, a higher daily dose is required to effectively treat these FIP forms. Despite the fact that hundreds of cats have been successfully treated with GS-441524, the FDA has yet to approve it. If you are thinking about using GS-441524, you should talk to your veterinarian about the potential risks, benefits, eligibility requirements, and regulatory concerns. Although Gs FIP treatment has been shown to be effective, supportive care is still needed to improve your cat's chances of survival.
  • What are signs of FIP in cats?
    FeCV-exposed cats rarely show signs of illness. Some cats might have moderate upper respiratory symptoms including sneezing, watery eyes, and nasal discharge, while others have diarrhea. Most of the time, these minor symptoms go away. It is possible for FeCV-exposed cats to acquire FIP some weeks, months, or even years later. However, this happens very rarely. Cats infected with FIP have a wide range of symptoms, such as loss of appetite, fever, depression, and weight loss. FIP can be effusive (wet) or non-effusive (dry). It is also important to remember that cases with effusive FIP can transform into non-effusive FIP and vice versa. In general, the symptoms of the non-effusive (dry) form develop more slowly than those of the effusive form. These symptoms may include the non-specific signs listed above as well as neurological symptoms like seizures and ataxia (unusual or uncoordinated movements). When FIP is in its effusive (wet) form, the symptoms tend to show up quickly and get worse quickly. They include the above vague signs and symptoms, as well as the buildup of fluid in the abdomen and thorax (chest cavity). Because fluid builds up in the abdomen, cats with this condition may look like they have a pot belly. If this fluid accumulates too much, a cat may have difficulty breathing. Please read our Feline Infectious Peritonitis Treatment Guide to learn more about signs of FIP in cats.
  • Is My Cat at Risk for Developing Fip?
    Cats infected with Feline Enteric Coronaviruses (FeCV) have the potential to develop Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). Here are some factors that may contribute to the risk: Age: FIP is more often seen in cats that are younger. About 70% of cases happen in cats younger than 12 months, and 50% of them happen in kittens younger than 7 months. Transmission: FeCV infections often happen early in a kitten's life, usually when it is between 5 and 8 weeks old. Most of the time, infected parents pass the virus on to their children. This is the main way the virus spreads. Environment: Cats are more likely to get FIP in places with a lot of cats, like shelters, catteries, and other places with a lot of cats. Close contact and living in the same place can help the virus spread. Gender, Breed, and Age: The reasons aren't fully understood yet, but male cats, purebred cats, and older cats may be more likely to get FIP. It's important to remember that not all FeCV-infected cats get FIP. We still don't know a lot about how FeCV turns into FIP, but it seems to involve complicated interactions between the virus, the cat's immune system, and other things in the environment. If you are worried about your cat getting FIP, you can talk to a vet who knows your cat's health history and can give you personalized advice and direction.
  • Can My Cat Be Tested for FIP?
    FIP cannot be definitively diagnosed through a single test. Diagnosis of FIP is challenging because there is currently no specific test available. Instead, it is considered a diagnosis of exclusion, where other potential illnesses are ruled out. A high FCoV antibody titer in cats is a sign that is often seen. But it's important to remember that antibody levels or titers alone can't tell if a cat has been exposed to the Feline Enteric Coronavirus (FeCV) or the FIP virus (FIPV). A positive test result means exposure to a coronavirus, but not necessarily FIPV. Despite this, young cats with a high coronavirus titer and a fever that does not respond to medication are frequently given a presumptive diagnosis of FIP. This theory is strengthened if the cat's body cavities fill up with yellowish fluid that contains white blood cells and protein. X-rays might be able to show if fluid is building up in the chest or abdomen. There are other tests that might be able to show that the FIP virus is present: The Immunoperoxidase test can look for viral proteins in white blood cells that have been infected, but it needs a biopsy of the affected tissue to be accurate. The Immunofluorescence test can identify viral proteins in white blood cells that have been infected by the virus in tissues or body fluids. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a method used to detect viral DNA in body fluids or tissues. But it's important to know that none of these tests is 100% accurate, and each has its own flaws that can lead to false negative or positive results. To obtain an accurate diagnosis, it is strongly recommended to consult with a veterinarian who can assess your cat's symptoms, perform necessary tests, and provide appropriate guidance.
  • Can I Protect My Cat From Getting Fip?
    Protecting cats from acquiring Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a challenging task, but there are measures you can take to minimize the risk: Preventing FeCV Infection: FeCV is the precursor to FIP, so preventing FeCV transmission can reduce the chances of FIP development. However, complete prevention is difficult to achieve. Managing Crowded Environments: Cats in shelters and catteries, where there are a lot of cats, are at a higher risk. It is best to keep no more than three cats in a room to reduce the stress that comes from living in a small space. Clean and Separate Facilities: It's important to keep the litter boxes clean and separate from the food and water bowls. FeCV is passed through feces and saliva, but FIPV, the virus that causes FIP, is not passed in feces. Overall Health Maintenance: Taking care of your cat's overall health can help reduce the chance that it will get FIP. Their health is improved by going to the vet regularly, getting the right shots (like for feline leukemia virus and calicivirus), and eating a balanced diet. FIP vaccination: There is only one approved FIP vaccine, but it is still not clear how well it protects against FIP. The Feline Vaccine Advisory Panel of the American Association of Feline Practitioners does not recommend using this vaccine routinely. Before you decide to vaccinate your cat, talk to your vet about the risks and benefits. Note that despite these measures, FIP prevention remains difficult due to the complexity of the disease.
  • Are my other cats at risk?
    Based on research of coronavirus shedding, it's likely that in-contact cats of a FIP patient have already been infected with FCoV because they shared litter trays.   As a result, cats from the same household are either immune to FCoV or are in the early stages of developing FIP, and subsequent exposure will have no effect. As a result, it should be safe to nurse a cat with FIP at home rather than at the veterinarian's office if other cats have lived together previously. It's critical to recognize that bringing in a new cat when they have a cat with FIP puts the new cat at risk: around 75% of cats with FIP shed FCoV in their feces (Addie, Toth, Herrewegh, & Jarrett, 1996).
  • How Long Does the Virus Survive in the House?
    Taking the necessary steps to disinfect the area will help get rid of the Feline Coronavirus (FCoV). Some essential considerations are as follows: Disinfection with Bleach: According to a study conducted by Addie et al. in 2009, bleach can be used to sanitize the litter box and eliminate the virus. Sanitizing Soft Furnishings: Along with cleaning the litter box, it is recommended to steam-clean any soft furniture that may have come in contact with the infected cat. This can help get rid of any possible traces of the virus and make sure the area is clean. Testing Exposed Cats: If there are other cats in the house that have been around the FIP-infected cat, it is best to test them for FCoV antibodies. Testing can help find out if the cats have been infected and tell what else needs to be done next, like keeping an eye on their health or thinking about more testing or treatment. By using the right cleaning methods and doing the right tests, you can help lower the risk of FCoV spreading within your home and make it a safer place for your cats.
  • Can Humans Get Sick From Fip?
    FIP mostly affects cats and is not thought to make people sick or be a direct threat to their health. Researchers are still trying to figure out how and why FIP spreads, but the risk to human health is thought to be minimal. Some coronaviruses found in animals, like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), have caused large outbreaks of respiratory diseases in people. However, there is no evidence that FCoV (Feline Coronavirus)/FIP can be passed from cats to humans at this time. But it's important to remember that people may still be a part of how FCoV spreads. It's important to keep good hygiene and take the right precautions when handling and interacting with cats, especially those who might have FIP or have already been diagnosed with it. To reduce any possible risks, it's best to wash your hands often and stay away from the bodily fluids of infected cats.
  • What Are the Signs of FIP in Tests?
    FIP can be detected through various laboratory tests. Here are some key indicators to look for: Blood: Lymphopenia: Found in 55-77% of cases, it refers to a decrease in lymphocyte count. Neutrophilia: Observed in 39-55% of cases, it signifies an increase in neutrophil count. Mild to moderate normocytic, normochromic anemia: Present in 37-54% of cases, it indicates a decrease in red blood cell size and color. Serum: Hyperproteinemia: Seen in up to 60% of cases, it refers to elevated total protein levels in the blood. Hyperglobulinemia: This condition involves an increase in globulin proteins in the blood. Low or low-normal serum albumin: A decrease in albumin, a specific type of protein, is often observed. Albumin: globulin (A:G) ratio: A low ratio (< 0.4) is indicative of FIP being highly likely, while a high ratio (> 0.8) suggests FIP is very unlikely. Hyperbilirubinemia: Found in 21-36% of cases, especially in effusive cases, it refers to elevated bilirubin levels in the blood. The magnitude of hyperbilirubinemia increases as the disease progresses. Liver enzymes (ALT, ALP & GGT): These enzymes are often normal or only mildly to moderately elevated in FIP cases. These test results, when considered collectively, can aid in diagnosing FIP, but it is essential to consult with a veterinarian for a comprehensive evaluation and accurate diagnosis.
