Maggie is my one year old cat that has recently been diagnosed with FIP (the dry form)......first symptoms of a problem were balance issues. After extensive bloodwork, she only tested positive for corona virus......which my understanding is that most cats do test positive for that virus. She doesn't run a fever, and is alert and eating and drinking ( i have to hand feed her and give her water by means of a syringe) since she cannot stand or walk now. My vet has her on prednisone, which she has been on for a week now. Any information that anyone has will be so much appreciated. I am not willing to give up on my little baby! Thank you in advance for any info!

Welcome to the board! If this is really your intro thread (very sad), you'll have to post some pictures so we can be more formally introduced to your furbaby. Sorry for the kitty's issues! Poor baby!! :sorry:
