Well, that's not what I've heard - have heard that IO is more of a match for the natural cat's interferon. Course you probably know that you can't always trust your vet 100% of the time, even if you generally like him/her.

But - Tally was always a big supporter of IA and I've come to believe there's something to that. So I use IA. For a kitty that's already disk, IO may be more potent, but I could only guess, don't know.

Hi Guys,
I just heard something interesting, and a bit distressing, from my vet's office. I had called about Grace's condition and to ask if I could come in to pick up some Interferon A. Now, I didn't get to talk directly to the vet, but I was told that Interferon A and O will work exactly the same way, that the injectable isn't "stronger" than the oral. I knew the main reason for using it was the 'immunity' factor, but I also was under the misconception, (apparently), that it somehow worked better. If the only benefit derived from the VO is extended use, then it may not be feasible to use it, I know I can't afford extensive, long-term use of this product as things stand. If this is the case, why are we jumping through hoops and spending all this money on VO? I guess when push comes to shove, it will be good to have the VO on hand, if/when the A stops working, but I'm feeling a little duped here. I have to do some further investigation about this, I'm not sure it's really the case, but I wanted to put it out there.
