In this article, we study the deformations of Filippov algebroids. First, we define a differential graded Lie algebra for a Filippov algebroid by introducing the notion of Filippov multiderivations for a vector bundle. We then discuss deformations of a Filippov algebroid in terms of low-dimensional cohomology associated with this differential graded Lie algebra. We define Nijenhuis operators on Filippov algebroids and characterize trivial deformations of Filippov algebroids in terms of these operators. Finally, we define finite order deformations and discuss the problem of extending a given finite order deformation to a deformation of a higher order.
