Ceviz is a one-year-old stray cat, living in Turkey, İzmir. She started developing symptoms of Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) and got diagnosed with dry FIP on 23rd June 2022. Sadly, the cost of the examination was 400 Turkish Liras, and they informed us that the medicine for FIP will cost a large sum, and we should consider putting Ceviz to sleep.
Until recently, FIP was a death sentence for cats. Good news is that there is a cure for cats who suffer from FIP, a medicine called “GS-441” which is highly effective, but very expensive.
Ceviz is only getting worse over time, and right now she has trouble walking. She poops all over herself because she cannot control her muscles. We cannot take her to a private veterinarian because of the cost. It costs 2300 Turkish Liras for the tests and examination of the cat. After having the tests done, we will start her treatment. And the treatment will be even more expensive, but we are not sure how much exactly. One bottle of GS-441 costs 100 dollars. But one bottle usually only lasts 5 days. (We can’t be sure exactly “how long” it will take to finish a bottle of GS-441, because we couldn’t afford to take her to the private vet yet to get her tested for everything) and the treatment takes 3 months.
So, with only 150 dollars, we will be able to bring her to a private veterinarian and post the results of Ceviz’s tests here to keep you updated.
After that, we will buy the medicine I’ve mentioned above (the full name of the medicine is GS-441524) with the money you have donated to Ceviz.
Currently, she doesn’t want to eat food, is getting skinnier and has trouble walking and controlling her rear legs – which means it’s late stage for Ceviz, and we must act quickly to save her, because the virus is affecting her nervous system. She needs your help to live. Please help Ceviz live a healthy and long life. She will be very grateful and happy if she gets the treatment she needs.
There is always hope. This medicine is quite new, and has a very high success rate!
