ebony, It's not normally a death sentence in its self as far as I'm aware it what it can cause that's the issue & so long as they are treated correctly then it shouldn't be an issue. Of course Ebony's asthma might complicate matters but then she was vaccinated before she met Tigger so that will hopefully prevent her getting the virus anyway.
Please note I'm not any form of qualified veterinary person & I can only go by what I've read & from friends who havve had cats with it, the best person to ask is your vet, if you have concerns. Did you read the link to the icatcare article I posted earlier in this thread?
I would say no guarentees ebony (after all Tigger's gingivitis developed some time after he got the virus) but I would say that the percentage odds are against it. However as I've said before we are not veterinary trained in any way & the best person to ask is your vet although it could be that this is why he wasn't prepared to commit himself.
Happy days with Roman, Osiris & Lexie (remembering Chloe & Penny)
Tigger seems to be doing much better lately, she ate her own dinner tonight and decided to hungrily eye up Ebony's dinner as well and as soon as Ebony decided she'd eaten enough Tigger was there gobbling down the leftovers <3
