While waiting for your reply, I've been doing some reading. According to this link http://health.hpathy.com/pleurisy-symptoms-treatment-cure.asp fluid collection around the lungs
is most often caused by a viral infection as well as lung infections. In listing the symptoms, I find that my cat doesn't have most of those symptoms. The vet said my cat doesn't have a fever, there was no pain at each breath and it wasn't worsened by deep breathing because just before the vet drained 4 oz of fluid from around the lungs yesterday, my cat was breathing at a normal rate (30 breaths per minuteat rest ) and breathing deeper, not more shallow. He would even take big sighs, and no sign of distress or pain. There was only a slight cough, about
one two-second cough a day, but a couple of light sneezes, once or twice a day. So, he didn't have most of the symptoms of pleural effusions. How come? I'm also wondering if there might be a lung infection as the link suggested. I'm not asking you to diagnose my cat but I do have to have something to say to my vet to encourage him to think past that my cat must have FIP or feline leukemia with no more to base that on than that there is a fluid build-up around the lungs every 6 weeks or so.
