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.

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.
