Hi everyone! I just joined your board today but I have been reading some of
your posts since last week.

About 2 months ago we adopted our first FELV cat Violet. 2 weeks later we
also adopted her brother Mo. They are amazing, sweet, affectionate cats and
we love them so much!

Vi is eating every thing in sight, healthy, happy and very playful but poor
Mo has really struggled. He lost an eye at 4 months old and is only 5.5lbs.
He had a respiratory infection and teeth pulled before he came home with
us. The rescue told us they didn't think he had long to live but wanted him
to have a home if we would take him.

Fast forward 6 weeks and he's been back to their vet twice for tooth roots
and non healing gums and to ours when he was obviously in terrible pain
while eating. She found sores on his palate and ran bloodwork to check for
anemia. I got the bad news last Thurs that he is severely anemic and there
is nothing we can do beyond what we were doing (clavamox, prednisone,
buprenorphine) and I was devastated... until I finally came across your
archives in an exhaustive search on Friday.

First, thank you all for sharing, we would have no hope for sweet Mo if it
weren't for you. I talked to his vet Sat who hadn't heard of using
Winstrol. She agreed to at least switch him to Doxy and research it. I was
shocked Yesterday to get a call from her saying she would prescribe it for
me!!

Luckily, she was having the Doxy compound into a liquid for me and after
calling all over, that pharmacy was able to order the Stanozolol. I was
able to add the steroid to our Doxy/Pred that we were already doing.

I just wanted to ask everyone what their experience has been with this. I
know some saw great results, others, not so much. Today Mo was very
lethargic and wouldn't eat in the AM but when I came home at lunch he ate
quite a bit (for him).

His number was 10 last week (I'm not sure if that's just rbc's or not) so I
hope I was able to get him the meds in time.

Thank you again for the info, it's the only thing that has given me hope to
save Mo!

Sheri
