FCV (IFA)

To: medhelp

My cat was vomiting and pooping on my living room floor.  I took my cat to vet for a blood test and the results came in.  The vet said my cat has toxoplasis but I looked at the test results and it stated negative.  The vet said that my cat tested positive for FCV (IFA).  Is this disease curable?  Is the same as FIP?  Is this coronavirus?  

Please kindly advise me what to do.

Thank you.

Regards,

Ellen Chiang

Yes, some of the confusion your having stems from the fact they just developed a new batter of tests for FIP IFA, and as a result they've renamed the test from FIP to FCP (the "c" being coronavirus).

What does this mean? Well, with out getting all scientific and giving you a headache, it SOUNDS like you vet gave your kitty a "negative" rating, which means that he's a carrier of the disease but not actively infected/sick.  

That means kitty should be fine. I'd confirm what I'm saying with the vet, as the new tests are very specific and they've identified a section of genome in the 7B region that can indicate kitty's rate of infection and survival.

But I wouldn't worry about that. Ask your vet if kitty is asymptomatic, just a carrier, or at high risk. The new test should give a decent indication (although not perfect, but what is?).
