What's it all about then, eh?

Sad news: Biggles died yesterday. He was in one of the best animal hospitals in the world but had a cardiac arrest whilst coming round from a general anaesthetic that was required to take biopsy material from the mass in his chest. Apparently 99.99% of animals that undergo the procedure survive it - I guess Biggles finally ran out of lives...

Strangely, we still don't know what the problem was, although some earlier blood tests had been "suggestive" of FIP again. The Vet school are going to do a Post Mortem to see if they can find out more about it - clearly they are interested to know what effect the Interferon had on him, and how it influenced the course of the disease.
