and your kitty cat

I will leave it to Amani to counsel re: protocol... but the short
answer re: Doxy and pred is No... not the usual course of Treatment...
Of primary importance ( and this cannot be overstated) is to have your
vet onboard with you and to have he financial means to implement the
treatment without having to cut corners..... I'll never know if I could
have saved MY little guy had I had a cooperative vet and sufficient
funds to secure everything I needed in a timely fashion..... I'm
hesitant even to get another FeLV cat to be company for my still very
active other FeLV buddy because I will have to Foster this time and the
shelter is not on board either with Amani's protocol ( which means I
would have to stand helplessly by and watch another cat fade unless I
spent money I don't have going against their wishes...... Difficult
decisions. You'll never know if the regimen can help if you wait too
long to implement it..... I've been on this list long enough now to see
a few cats helped quite a bit by the Win/Doxy/Pred combination and think
it would make more sense to try
THAT first rather than wasting time with the other treatments that
appear to have a less impressive effect...
Again.... my opinion... and not an expert one
You write as someone who has some medical experience or at least a grasp
of medical protocols.. so I imagine you can make an informed
decision..... Hopeful that Win/Doxy/Pred can stop things FROM
happening in instances that the worst has not yet begun....
Hoping for the best...
