Yes... that does make more sense since it is A:G ratio and not G:A ratio.... crap.

I read this somewhere:

Serum Protein Levels. If the total serum protein is 7.8 g/dL or greater AND the A:G ratio (ratio of two different blood proteins) is less than 0.6, FIP becomes a more likely diagnosis. A few other diseases may also cause this, but these are also very severe and usually fatal. These findings occur in 50% of the cases of FIP.

His TP is 8.9.

I don't give up though. I'm still not convinced it's FIP. Does anyone know if having a parasite could affect a cat's TP, albumin and/or globulin?
