FIP is common in FeLV cats

Hi everyone,We took Charles (felv+) to the vet this morning and they did an 
xray of his chest, their is a lot of fluid in his chest cavity, she said it 
could possibly be a tumor. She gave him a shot of cortisone and a shot of 
Lasix, sent us home with Lasix pills as well.  I am hoping that the Lasix gets 
rid of all of the fluid and hopefully we can by some time if it is a tumor.  
If anyone has any advise or thoughtsI don't wantto loose one of our 
babies.

Hi Beth,

  That's new to me. Could you please point me towards more information? 
I've had several cats diagnosed with FIP, and none were confirmed, so I'm 
curious as to a possible link to FeLV. Might explain a few things.

Thanks, 

Margo

I don't know why some vets are so uninformed but I have had seemingly 
intelligent vets tell me that this or that cat had FIP because the cat had a 
high titer for the corona virus. This is NOT FIP. Many cats get a corona virus. 
Some actually become ill from it but with regular symptoms of illness - high 
fever, anorexic, lethargic but not the usual fluid filled chest cavity that is 
one of the signs of FIP (but could also be heart disease). FIP is not all that 
common in cats, even in strays. The few cats I rescued with genuine FIP were 
NOT FeLv+ or FIV+. It seems to me that vets want to blame every illness on cats 
who are positive for one of the combo test disorders. Sometimes I suspect that 
the vets want to give us a reason to dispose of the cat without having a guilty 
conscience since it's terminally ill anyway. I had a cat with a high titer 
for the corona virus. She was diagnosed with FIP. What she had was a high 
fever. She had a miscarriage (pregnant
 stray calico, very friendly) in my backyard. She was burning up with fever. 
They said to have her euthanized. I said no. They said FIP, I said no. She had 
to be spayed on an emergency basis because the rest of the fetuses were not 
alive. They returned a live almost bald skeleton cat to me and told me she had 
about a 10% chance of living through the week because she had FIP. I said she 
did not have it. Took home Buttercup, syringe fed her for almost a month. Flea 
combed her every day in the isolation room she inhabited in my house. She began 
eating on her own after a month. Her fur grew back. She began high-jumping 
after bouncing balls. She grew fat. I took her back for her rabies shot and vet 
was astonished. Said she had recovered from FIP. I said she had recovered from 
a corona virus infection. She was eventually adopted.My FeLv+ cats never had 
FIP. Some actually fought off the FeLv virus and now test negative. Two passed 
away from the disease when it
 became active.

 Have him checked foe medistinal lymphoma, it is a very aggressive 
canser, very treatable but treatment must be started ASAP.

May I recommend you to a cancer group that I joined after all chemos failed and 
I was once again given 3 months.  I vowed never to do chemo again and began 
looking around.  There is a tonic (internal) and a salve (external)  I am using 
it now.
the group is 2053-proven-alternati...@googlegroups.com.  At the very least, 
they can give lots of support.
