Re: Potential FIV+, severe weight loss in senior

I'll contact the vets tomorrow to confirm which it is. I'm fairly certain it's FIV as I was sure to check with them last time asking the vet if they were saying FIP or FIV. They said fiv.

Hello Looking for some advice / help. We rescued two neutered Tom's February last year. At the cattery they'd had alot of dental work, so only had a few teeth remaining. Both weighed around 5 kilos.
