Hello, I was hoping to get some advice on here. I took my cat to the vet last week and he had a fever so they gave him some antibiotics. Now a week later I haven't noticed any major improvements. He's been a little lathargeic which he's normally very playful. The vet ran some bloodwork and his globulin levels were highest than normal. She said it could be either a fever of unknown origin or fip. But that it's really hard to diagnose either way. I'm so worried about my fur baby. Anyone have similar experiences ?

You need to go to the Facebook group FIP Fighters and ask to join the group, then post labs. It is possibly FIP but can be other things that look like FIP. The group will help you with that. Symptoms of FIP are fever not responsive to antibiotics, weight loss, lethargy and poor coat. Labs seen with FIP are anemia, increased globulin and a low A/G ratio however my Leonard never had increased globulins but it is a common finding. Go over to that group. They will help you immensely!

It usually strikes cats under 2 years old. My Leonard was 7 months.

Thank you. Apollo will be 2 next month. I'm praying every day that he'll be okay and it's just due to my recent schedule change.
