I have a diabetic cat, not on insulin, but he is sneezing and has a red ring around his eyes. He has been hiding and not eating like usual. He begs for food constantly on most days. He and his sister both are diabetics and prone to infections. I just had them groomed at the vets and both were sick afterwards. I am sure they catch something from there every time. He acts better today but I still worry. His breathing is loud. I just had him checked a week ago. Glucose test and breathing. They told me he is fine, but I can hear him across the room. I thought there was some type of motor running, but it was him snoring. He has a runny nose. He acts really tired. I am giving him amoxicillin and putting drops in his eyes. It is hard because he will hide and then try to bite if he knows you are going to medicate him. His sisters glucose level was bad but she plays and acts like she is fine. I am giving her meds because they are so close. They sleep together and clean each other. I take them in several times a year for immune shots to boost their system. Does this sound like FIP? The sneezing and dripping nose and tiredness.I had never even heard of this until I saw where several people had lost their cats to this. That is a very scary thing. Everyone says I am just paranoid when it comes to my kids and cats but I know how fast things can go wrong. I put Boxer by me to sleep so I could listen to him and make sure he was alright. He usually sleeps around and on my head anyway but he is mad at me for medicating him. Any info on what might be wrong? Is it just a URI?
