“Cured of what?” You might ask. “Well, FIP.” I would reply.
After three months of daily injectable treatments and three months of observation, Leo has been deemed cured by proxy. I say, ‘by proxy’, because her cured status is based on the fact she did not relapse during observation nor did she show any clinical signs of the virus. Normally, a cured status is only achieved through bloodwork but as some of you may know, my finances are a bit tight due to Leo’s medical costs and those of her housemates. Additionally, I incurred vet bills due to emergency care for two litters of kittens diagnosed with parasites, a urinary blockage, and an outbreak of calicivirus.
I intend to bring Leo in for the final lab work as soon as finances improve.
