Ask a Cat Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hopefully you can see the attached blood test. Would taking a sample of the chest fluid hurt him?Thank you for your help and advice
No he hasn't been tested for Feline Leukemia - I will ask him to do that.I thought the WBC was high?Does it look like he has anemia? I know thats another indicator of FIP.I was thinking to ask my new Vet to drain the fluid to see if its yellow - but will this hurt my cat at all? I don't want him to feel pain.Thank you so much for your help
Thank you so much for asking. I took him to see another Vet today. He said he didn't feel it was FIP. He said Cola looks too healthy (silky coat, no weight loss, eyes a little dull but nothing too bad) also bloods are not fully supportive. He wants me to wean Cola off of the Medrone and Fruscare over 5 days and then go back on Wednesday week for another X-ray and more blood tests. I'm to go back if I am worried in between time.From the X-rays my previous Vet did, it looks like the fluid is 'IN' the lungs, not around. I think I read somewhere that FIP flid is usually around the lungs - not sure if that is right. I definitely feel much more positive.Thank you so much once again for your help and advice, I was willing to give up and put him to sleep until I read you comments. THANK YOUx
