Thank you so much for your help, you really put my mind at ease. You helped me with one of my other cats previously, so I know your advice is great - Thank youI've got him on a high quality 'Sensitive' diet and I give him some supplements to help the diarrhea (Peridale Granules, Prokolin+, Slippery Elm Bark & Fortiflora). His stools are becoming more 'formed' but still quite wet, I'm hoping the Peridale will help firm up his stools and the Prokolin & Fortiflora will help the good bacteria in his gut. If these don't help, I will look at changing Vets as I'm finding my local Vet very unhelpful.In a couple of weeks I will get Merlot's feces retested to see if he is still shedding the coronavirus - hopefully it will stop at some point.The good news is he is putting on weight, lively and has a lovely silky coat. I will get him neutered as soon as his stomach settles.Thank you very much once again for your help.
Haha! I'm still worried about my other cats, so at the moment I'm doing OCD cleaning; I know they have probably been exposed already, but I don't want to tempt fate by letting them share litter trays etc.....so if he stops shedding I feel I could relax a bit - I guess the test is more for me than him. Thank you so much for putting everything in perspective, since your initial reply I haven't been half as worried about it mutating to FIP - Thank you
