folks, once again, go to the website and actually READ what it says, and be intelligent consumers.
this is NOT a drug, it is a "treatment aid." it has CONDITIONAL approval (which means that it shows promise of maybe doing something)--NOT from the FDA but from the Department of Agriculture. i'm getting really frustrated by folks who don't ask around and talk with people who have done some investigating of these "new, improved, emperor's new supplement" claims--scientists (and undergrad stat students) who look at the "research" done on this product laughs--the original study, upon which everything is based, was done on a sample size that isn't even statistically significant. and what they are calling, "trials" have been laughable, as well--perhaps they've cleaned up that part of their act, but til now no sanctuary or vet experienced with research would take part in them, as they were no more rigorous nor statistically valid than the original ones. whoever heard of a drug company CHARGING people to take part in clinical trials????? yes, perhaps this product has some use, but the sleazy marketing techniques that have characterized the company since they bought out the people who actually DID the work, makes many of us question ANYTHING they say. and what's worse is that it's all there, on their website. i can't even comment upon the unlikelihood that a kitten who truly has FIP would live long enough to participate in trials of any sort.
