I lost my 4 year old cat on Sunday - when I had her into the ER X-rays showed fluid in her abdomen - she was having difficulty breathing - was in pain. They gave her a pain shot and antibiotic and I was suppose to take her to my regular vet in the a.m. for further testing. She passed before I could get her there - my vet suspected FIP - was there anything I could have done - her death was so painful and I feel so guilty - but no one mentioned to me that night that FIP may be the culprit or I would have put her to sleep - she was well taken care of and all this happened in one day - at noon she was laying around and at midnight she died. Does it always happen so quickly - no warning? Now I'm worried my 14 year old cat may get it. Although she stays indoors whereas my other cat was indoor/outdoor. Can you give me any insight to ease my mind?
There is nothing you could of done. There is no treatment for this virus. Sorry, vetcare
