|Thank you all for your kind thoughts.
Zac has been to the vets today and is now 3.3kg. Its not his usual 4kg, but at least he's not lost any more weight (last week 3.2kg).
The steroids and antibiotics did seem to help a fair bit and on sunday it was wonderful to hear his mieow back. Yesterday wasnt so good, but vet said that could well fit in with the injections wearing off.
He's had more shots of steroids and antibiotics today, and in 3 days time I will start him on Mirtazapine tablets to help his appetite. (mid way between the steroid shots).
He has been checked by all of the vets in the practice who all suspect FIP. His usual vet apparently suspected it a week prior but didnt want to say anything until another set of tests results came back from the lab.
Ive also spoken to another vet who is a personal friend of one of Zacs Mums friends. Same thing really no 100% confirmation but looking like it. It was this vet who suggested Mirtazapine to see if we could get his weight back up. His own vet is happy to try anything rather than loose Zac.
I have to take him back to the vets next Tues, when they will keep him for a couple of hours and take full bloods (3rd set) to see if there are any changes.
