Well if it isn't FIP, what could it possibly be ?  And if it isn't, and there 
is no bacterial infection in the sample sent off is it just another 
complication of feline leukemia? What kind of treatment is there for 
accumulation of fluid on the lungs other than what we're doing now.  The vet 
told me today this is the second case like this he's seen this week.  I 
truthfully don't believe these vets would deliberately withhold any kind of 
treatment if they thought it would work.  They know that we are prepared to try 
just about anything that would possibly be helpful to him.  I don't plan to 
give up on the little guy and am still reading up on other treatments but 
everything I have read so far says these animals are doomed.  I have yet to 
come across any medical information that says they can live a long and healthy 
life.  I'm not giving up on the Interferon or Prednisolone.  I also can't be 
putting this poor animal through weekly lung aspirations forever.  I can see 
complications arising from that as well.

  Any vet that tells you this is a quack ... period!!!!

    he has FIP
  FIP can ONLY be diagnosed with an autopsy so Boo will not get treated now for 
what he really has, I hate vets that tell people that.   There are many things 
that mimic FIP, but once the dreaded FIP word is mentioned the cat is doomed to 
die because the vet looks no further.  It sounds to me like your vet is tired 
of trying to figure out how to treat Boo and this is his way out ... so sad for 
Boo ...


happiness is being owned by cats ...
