Hello, my name is***** and I'd like to help you and Dolly. I did some research on feline diseases common to Egypt, given that it is unlikely she picked up something here in 2 weeks time. Differentials include tick borne (babesia), flea borne, fungal, viral (like feline leukemia or FIV). Has anything additional been sent to the lab? CBC with pathologist review? Idexx has a Fever of Unknown Origin panel that tests for a multitude of problems as well.

If your vet is not making sufficient progress, you always have the option of a second opinion with an Internal Medicine Specialist. Most major cities have a specialty or referral hospital that can work up the case further to find an answer and hopefully a treatment option for you.

If I have answered your questions, please kindly rate me (this is how I am compensated for my time). If not, please reply back and I am happy to answer additional questions. Thank you.
