I never even heard of FIP until 5 months ago and ignorance was sure bliss.
I am in complete agreement with what you vet told you above. I DO understand the desire, need and drive to do our own research on the internet and on boards BUT just know what you read and find out may cause you much, much more undue stress
and anxiety. I know for a fact, because I have done it on many occasion. I drove myself crazy for years over my baby boy Wilbur
. None of what I ever read and worried over came true either.
You have not brought in any new cats, right?? So they have not been exposed to the virus recently, right?! I honestly think that IF they had FIP you would have been seeing signs early than this AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, they ALL would not be getting these diarrhea episodes at and around the same time. Surely, this must be either the Christmas decorations or something else they got into, a mild virus or diet.
Did the vet give you the metro? If not, again, ask him about it. What about the W/D? Did you ask about adding that into their diet right now until things clear. These are two things I would be doing and have done in the past when my cats have had these bouts. AND YES.....
you are not alone in the diarrhea department. It does happen and they will recover.
