Our new kitten came from the humane society. She was sick with cocidia (sp?)and a bad cold, but seemed to get better with care from the vet. Now she is sick again..stomach is distended and vet wants to see her first thing in the morning to check her for FIP. What are other symptoms of FIP? What are the risk factors to our other 2 Cats (5 years old)? What is the kittens chance of recovery from FIP? What can we do to make her more comfortable till tomorrow? Kitten is listless and drinks a lot of water, but isn't eating much. She is still pooping okay. We took her to the vet on Friday, and she thought we didn't get rid of the cocidia completely, so we are giving her Albon right now and she received a shot antibiotic on Friday as well. We have seen no improvement in the last 48 hours.
FIP is fatal in all cases and there is no cure. It is highly contagious and your other cats should be tested as well. vetcare
