Warning re Breeders/FIP/unhealthy kittens PDF Print E-mail
Written by Melanie   

Over the past few years I have heard from numerous people about some specific breeders that are unfortunately breeding with cats that carry disease and infection. Some of these breeders have been aware that thier lines have had problems for MANY, MANY years but yet they continue to breed with the same animals over and over again rather than desexing the offending animals and starting again with unrelated animals.

I have spent a lot of time putting together the "TIPS FOR BUYING A KITTEN" and "THE ROLE OF A GOOD BREEDER" in our resources menu. If you follow this advise closely I believe you will stear clear of the offinding breeders. I will not mention names under any circumstances but want people out there to have a good experience and purchase a lovely natured kitten that lives a long and healthy life.  

Below I have attached a VET REPORT from a lady that contacted me after having a horrible experience with a kitten she purchased from one of the breeders I am referring to above. This kitten died of FIP and she is keen to make other people aware that SOME breeders don't have the kittens best interest at heart. At her request I have attached a report from her vet indicating that the kitten died from FIP.

 HISTOPATHOLOGY REPORT                                 Case No. V09/1701

 

 CLINICAL NOTES

 

 Acute onset anaemia, anorexia and pain palpation of R kidney

 

 MACROSCOPIC EXAMINATION

 

 "Kidney". The specimen consists of a portion of kidney measuring

 35x20x12mm. 2 representative sections taken in 2 separate cassettes A

 and B. (vs/ms)

 

 MICROSCOPIC EXAMINATION

 

 Diffusely the capsule is expanded by numerous viable and degenerate

 neutrophils, lymphocytes, plasma cells, macrophages, plump fibroblasts,

 abundant fibrin and collagen, haemorrhage and oedema. Multifocally

 within the capsule, venule lumina are filled with eosinophilic granular

 material with entrapped erythrocytes and leukocytes. The venule walls

 are obscured by previously described inflammatory cells. Multifocally

 extending into the superficial cortical interstitum and within the

 deeper cortical interstitium are moderate to abundant numbers of

 inflammatory cells that surround and separate glomeruli, tubules and

 blood vessels. There are multiple vessels within the cortex the walls of

 which are disrupted and obscured by an eosinophilic fibrilla material

 consistent with fibrinoid vascular necrosis. Multifocally there is mild

 cortical interstitial fibrosis that effaces and replaces normal

 architecture and extends from the cortex towards the medulla.

 

 DIAGNOSIS

 

 VASCULITIS AND NEPHRITIS, PYOGRANULOMATOUS, MARKED WITH MARKED DIFFUSE

 FIBRONOSUPPURATIVE CAPSULITIS, FIBRIN THROMBI AND TUBULAR DEGENERATION

 

 COMMENT

 

 The histopathology is consistent with feline infectious peritonitis

 virus infection.
