Hi Ardy,
 
Lysine, or L-lysine, is an essential amino acid, meaning it is necessary for human health, but the body cannot make it. 
It has been promoted for use in cats to help prevent or aide in healing Herpesvirus infections in cats (also called feline viral rhinotracheitis)
However, recent info has disputed this.  For details, see:

May I ask – what is lycine that was mentioned for use in water dishes (not that Topaz drinks out of dishes! But Peekers does.)

 

Thank you,

Ardy

This is what our vet told us last week.  When we found out our Destiny had FeLV, we took our four other cats in.  They were all fine except one, Blossom.  She is 16 and basically has one kidney, but seemed to be fine with the meds and diet.  She is FIV!  So not a good month for our cats.  I am using lycine in all their water dishes.

Hi Sandy,

 

I think that it is the old FIV vaccine that you are thinking of.  It is no longer on the market.

Once cats were vaccinated with it they would test positive on a SNAP test.

 

Cats vaccinated with the FeLV vaccine will not test positive afterwards, at least that I have ever heard.

Thank you Amani - I knew you would be able to be concise and to the point - and with FeLV time can not be wasted. One thing though - would it be wise to retest??  

 

Thank you,

Sandy is referring to the combination of drugs which I’ve named Zander’s Protocol in honour of my sweet Zander who had FeLV. The combination of Doxycycline, Prednisolone and Winstrol (Stanazolol) pulled him out of a very serious downward spiral when nothing else had worked (including blood transfusion, LTCI and interferon). With all due respect, I would be doubtful that any anti-oxidants or natural remedies can do anything significant against this nasty virus and you don’t have time to waste.

 

Zander’s Protocol:         Doxycycline:     25 to 50 mg every 12 hours

 

                                    Prednisolone:    2.5 mg every 12 hours

 

                                    Winstrol:           1-2 mg every 12 hours

 

Before starting the protocol, I suggest a complete blood panel, including haematology and biochemistry panels. If money is tight, focus on the haematology panel, but ask also for a reticulocyte count. If there are concerning results in red cell numbers, haematocrit, reticulocyte counts, etc., and depending and HOW concerning the results are, use 2 mg Winstrol every 12 hours to start. If the results aren’t too bad, 1 mg every 12 hours should be enough.

 

Keep track of the haematology results. I ran bloodwork every week, but if you don’t want to do that, or can’t, consider every other week or at least once a month. I don’t recommend once a month at the outset You need to assess how well the protocol is working at the start. You also need to be able to assess the results by comparing them week to week, if possible, so that the meds can be modified if necessary.

 

If the cat is also having trouble keeping food down and/or getting food to pass well through the intestinal tract, also add 1/5 tablet of metoclopramide before meals. That helps to speed up the emptying of the stomach and increase peristaltic action to move food through the intestinal tract.

Pam Doore Ask Amani (on this felvtalk)  about Zander's Protocol - consists of doxycycline, Prednisolone and most important is Winstrol.  IMPORTANT to get your kitty on this ASAP.

It is my understanding that a cat given the vaccine and then booster may test positive for FeLV - a bummer.

Hi Marilyn,  I have been using lysine gel to help my Mozart who has herpes virus on top of the FeLu. 

There was a powdered supplement that a FeLu rescue outside of Boston gives to all of their cats to help build up immune system. I don't remember what the name of that was.  It was originally given to humans with HIV. 

 

What kind of infection is Destiny fighting?

Has anyone used these for FeLV?

 

My kitty, Destiny,  is battling a bad infection.  We were shocked to find she had FeLV.  She had had the shot and a booster.  The vet was treating her and the infection was getting worse and then we found out the terrible truth.  I am feeding her food with a syringe and keeping her comfortable.  She is on an antibiotic.  I am giving her Essiac tea.  No idea if it is effective.

 

I am going to get DMG because friends have suggested that for FeLV.

 

I also am looking at Life Gold and Nu-Pet Feline Antioxidant, but find info on using them with cancer, not FeLV.  Anyone have a suggestion about boosting her immune system and fighting this infection?  We thought we were going to lose her this week, but she is slightly better the last 24 hours.

 

Thank you!
