Tokyo and Osaka two siblings who are around 3 months old have been diagnosed with FIP.
Unfortunately, if not treated this is a deadly disease. Tokyo, who is suffering from Neuro FIP was the first to start showing symptoms. He was refusing any food and water for a week, which meant he needed to be force fed 5 times a day via syringe. He then started showing specific FIP symptoms like tremors and lack of balance with walking. He started injections on the 3rd of January and from the second day of treatment he started eating, an gained 100g in the week. He is now even running and getting a playful side which we have never seen before!
Osaka has been diagnosed with Ocular FIP, and has only started treatment two days ago, on the 12th January. She always has an appetite to eat however we realised she was abit on the boney side. In fact, before we even knew Tokyo had FIP during a vet visit they realised that Osaka has a temperature, but at the time, since she generally looked healthy, they could not pinpoint a cause for this temperature. When taken to the vet for a second time, her temperature subsisted and then they even realised that she had speckles in her eyes. Persistent temperature is generally a symptom, however the speckles in the eyes is a specific symptom of ocular FIP, which is a strain of Neuro FIP.
They will need to undergo a course of injections for 16weeks as well as blood tests which will confirm that internally the medication is working as its suppose to!
We would greatly appreciate any support towards Tokyo and Osaka's treatment! We are hopeful that with this treatment they will flourish into the beautiful kittens they were destined to be!
