Unused human covid meds to combat peritonitis outbreak in cats

Cabinet approves the use of unused human coronavirus treatments to be repurposed for ailing feline population


In an effort to address the rising cases of infectious feline peritonitis, the Cabinet, following an investigation by the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development, and the Environment, has decided to make available unused preparations previously used to treat human cases of coronavirus.

Under this decision, the preparations will be provided to individual cases upon prescription from private veterinarians who oversee the animal's health. The keepers of the affected animals can obtain the necessary preparations from the District Veterinary Offices of the Veterinary Services.

It is important to emphasize that feline infectious peritonitis is not transmissible to humans, ensuring public safety in the process.
