corona virus titres do NOT prove FIP. cats can have high FeCoV titres and not progress to FIP, and cats who have progressed to FIP can have low titres because their exposure was so long before that the virus itself is out of their systems, although the FIP mutation is not.
FIP is the new favorite diagnosis for, "we haven't a clue." like susan, i would love for there to be an answer for FIP--it's much worse than FeLV, because there's no way to predict who will get it, no way to prevent it, and no way to treat it. but calling everything FIP, as has become the habit over the past three years or so, just makes actual diagnosis and learning more muddier.
