The ABC Homeopathy Forum
sick kitten may have fip - help!About a two months ago we got a new kitten and is now just over 4 months old. She is really friendly and really independent - until about a week and a half ago we noticed she became more sluggish and was developing a fever. A few days before this she had just finished her last set of vaccinations.
Being first time cat owners, we were not aware of the possible dangers relating to vaccines and cats. After this we were prescribed an antibiotic with amoxicillin to combat the fever. Later that week we saw the prescribed antibiotics had not changed anything and her condition was getting worse. We took her back to the vet to find out there is a possibility of an upper respiratory infection - which would explain the short breaths and lack of stamina. We were also told that she now has a heart murmor and could not explain the cause of it. We are certain there is a correlation between the infection and the vaccines. The vet gave us the only option to go to the emergency clinic to have blood work, x-rays, and 24 hour IV fluid done and would cost us between $1200-1800+. We care very much for our kitten but we cannot afford to see the vet or seem to want to trust their methods if the vaccine is the initial cause of all this.
So far, we have researched and we think that this is a result of Vaccinosis, which caused the fever and led to the URI because her immune system was weakened. From our research, we found that these are all common symptoms in FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis).
Since parting ways with the vet, we have decided to take the natural homeopathic way. We have given her a little bit of elderberry juice for the fever, Thuja 30C for Vaccinosis, Echinacea, Olive Leaf, and Colloidal Silver for her overall immune system. We havent seen much results yet and has only been a day since we started this method.
We found a possible solution in the above forum but are wondering if any one else has any other ideas.
any and all help would be greatly appreciated! :)
even though we have only had her for two months we have become very attached to her.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
For now stop thuja. Give her pyrogen 30c twice daily for three days and report.
