Wilburs Battle with FIP, Help Us Conquer

Meet Wilbur Fitzgerald, my 10 month old absolutely beautiful Mackerel Tabby that I adopted at 6 months old on October 10,2020. He was a very sweet, energetic and playful kitty, until a few weeks ago when I realized that my sweet boy wasn’t feeling well, he slowly stopped playing, running around and started sleeping a lot, I know I know he’s a cat, and they sleep up to 18 hrs a day however he was sleeping A LOT! On Saturday February 27th I took him in to see a veterinarian at Faust Animal Hospital where he had a perfect physical exam but as a precaution blood was drawn for a blood panel, on Monday March 1st that blood panel came back perfect as well, I knew something was wrong and expressed my concern where we then scheduled to bring him in on Tuesday for X-rays, the X-rays came with a very bad diagnosis. Wilbur’s abdomen was full of fluid, a bright yellow fluid FIP Feline Infectious Peritonitis (Mutation of the Feline Coronavirus).  Wilbur is a fighter and is currently fighting for his life, there is not  an approved treatment. But..... there is an unapproved treatment!  He received his first dose tonight March 4th of what will hopefully cure him, it’s an expensive treatment of injections over the course of 85
days which includes weekly blood draws
and testing.
