This fundraiser is for Zivko. He is 6 years old and he has wet FIP, which can be fatal if he doesn't get the antiviral medication. The treatment is really expensive, so I decided to start the fundraiser to save himIn August, I noticed that Zivko is not acting as usual. I took him to the vet, he had high fever and no other symptoms.
After three weeks of high fever, even with different kinds of therapy and all the tests we could think of, his belly started filling with fluid. With a fairly simple test we were finally able to diagnose him.
Zivko was found in a garbage with his brothers and sisters as a two week old kitten.
He survived a rough start in life and he deserves a chance to fight against FIP.
Please help us save Zivko.
Treatment is expensive but he deserves a chance to live.
At this moment he needs one bottle for two days, every bottle is 75USD and therapy lasts 84 days.
So minimum cost will be 3.150,00 USD
PLEASE ... Help 😭
Donate and share!
Every little bit is important and might make the difference.

We switched serum 4 days ago and pushed the dosage up. Yesterday we went to the vet for a checkup. Abdominal fluid is still the same amount, but it does not interfere with his breathing. The vet took a fluid sample to check protein levels and they are at 3g. . . . .
