Hi Louri,
You may not realize this (I apologize if you do!), but Transmissible 
Gastroenteritis virus (TGE) in pigs, cross-reacts with FIP. So 
maybe you could find a source for TGE antisera that is not from cat. 
(I checked VMRD already, its' TGE is also produced in cat. Hmmm, 
suspicious, the same antibody perhaps??).
