As of Thanksgiving day, Calliope finished her 84 days of observation and with bloodwork can officially be considered cured! Unfortunately, my cat Flux developed and was diagnosed with FIP the week before, and I had to start treatment on him. This has taken all the money available and I haven't been able to get her final bloodwork to show that she's officially cured. It's $55 for the office and $117 for the cbc/super Chem test.
UPDATE: 9/6 She has completed the 84 days of treatment, and will now undergo 84 days of observation. This includes 3 vet checks with bloodwork. My veterinary credit card is maxed from the last visit and all of Flux's visits from June, so I'm reopening the fundraiser to cover the last visits and build a supply of the treatment in case any other of my cats develop this horrible disease. I help many cats all without being an official rescue and this has all put a strain on even feeding cats that I've ended up permanently fostering.
I'm trying to get the last half of my cat's medicine to save her from a deadly disease called FIP. There's 12 weeks of daily shots, bloodwork, and occasional antibiotics. We're heading into week 6, and will need at least another 12 vials.
On May 28th, I took my 3 year old bottle baby Calliope Cleo Selene ii to a scheduled vet appointment that revealed the start of pyometra. She had an emergency historectemy the next day. All went well, but she is a bit spoiled and wasn't about to let me give her pills. A week later she began having what felt like a fever. I took her in Sun 7th and the emergency Doc ran blood and on a hunch checked her abdomin with ultrasound. Fluid. He then pulled some fluid and looked under microscope. Straw colored and full of protein. Add in her distended belly, and my biggest fear confirmed. Number 11. You see, I have lost 10 cats and kittens to FIP since 2011. FIP has been a death sentence for cats for 40 years. But now there's hope. A drug shown to finally reverse the swift damage caused by FIP that ultimately leads to their death. I finally have a fighting chance to save a cat from a horrible disease that robs everything that makes them a cat.
The vials run $110 plus shipping, which varies because I buy what I can when I can. I had another cat with emergency stays at the vet 4 times through June. This completely wiped out my emergency vet funds, and has cut into my ability to get Calliope's medicine. She doesn't need much from the vet, just bloodwork to confirm she's improving. I'd love to cover all their bills, but I'm just looking to cover her meds. Any amount would be appreciated and no amount is too small. She has shown great improvement in the first half of the fight. Please help us to cross the finish line strong.
Her 8 week bloodwork. Looking better but still a little room for improvement.
