Gnocchi is an 11month old kitty who was recently diagnosed with FIP (feline infectious peritonitis). It is fatal in over 95% of untreated cases. The emergency vet had told me there was nothing I could do and I almost gave in. However, Gnocchi had other plans and put up a fight, screaming at me, when I took her in to put her down. Fortunately, I listened and took her home. I did a lot of research and found there is an experimental treatment and was able to start her on it last night, 4/23! It is a long and very expensive treatment, involving a daily injection for 12 weeks.
Obviously, noone is expected to help, but I do ask for your prayers for Gnocchi and myself! I did not expect to have to go through this again so soon after losing both of my senior pups last year.
Thank you for your support through this time!
