In 2016, the WSAVA One Health Committee (OHC) co-hosted a ground-breaking symposium with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2016.  Called ‘Preventing Obesity in People and Their Pets: A One Health Approach,’ it uniquely combined speakers and delegates from veterinary and human medicine to explore the relationship between obesity and disease in humans and their pets.  Several WSAVA respresentatives spoke at the event which was chaired by Emeritus Professor Michael Day (then Chair of the OHC).

Feline Infectious Peritonitis – An overview from the Felis service of Vetlexicon


Infectious disease with an immune-mediated component.
  • Cause: feline coronavirus (FCoV)  Feline coronavirus: FIP.
  • Signs: occurs in two forms, effusive (wet) and non-effusive (dry):
    • Effusive form: major clinical signs include ascites, dyspnea, fever, anorexia and wasting.
    • Non-effusive form: major clinical findings include neurological signs, fever, renal and hepatic failure, uveitis, anorexia and wasting.
    • On post-mortem examination mixed forms are commonly seen.
  • Diagnosis: signalment, history, signs, clinical pathology findings can raise suspicion. Histopathology combined with immunostaining for FCoV is only reference diagnostic method.

Seropositivity for FCoV does not confirm a diagnosis of FIP as most seropositive cats are healthy and will not develop FIP.
  • Treatment: currently supportive.
Prognosis: hopeless in long term. A few cats can maintain a reasonable quality of life for some weeks, rarely months.
