My name is Megan Vichich. I adopted my sweet baby Hagi in June 2020, not long after my dad died, and he's been the most perfect loving support kitty. Hagi loves playing fetch and chirping at the blue jays in our cedar trees. He is the sunshine in my life.
Hagi's health declined last week, he ate and drank less and less and not acting his happy perky self. He's had 3 appts since Saturday 4/24 between 2 different vets. They both suspect dry form FIP which has left me completely devastated. FIP is aggressive and painful for the cat, and if you can't afford treatments, it's a death sentence.
Basically, the drug needed to cure FIP is not approved because it's being tested as a treatment for human Ebola and Covid viruses, and humans take priority over pets. This means treatments can be very expensive and hard to come by.
I would be administering the doses myself, twice daily injections for up to 12 weeks. He will need bloodwork done every 4 weeks to make sure his levels are where they should be. Most cats start improving after the first dose. Hagi's liver values were normal, he is not anemic and has no other conditions. The success rate is plenty high enough for me to try.
Hagi's a tough little bean, he is my strong man and he's my entire world. I know we can win this fight. Please help me save my angel and me.
