Did they tap the fluid?
Draining the fluid will a) allow him to breathe MUCH easier and b) allow diagnosis
The test for FIP is NOT that accurate
And he is in great danger of not being able to breathe at all
That fluid needs to be taken off and analyzed
Forget waiting for the blood test results- none of them are that accurate
I would ask vet to drain fluid and send for cytology
If wont then I would find a new vet
I have done it 100's pf times
And kitty will feel so much better!
