If I understand right..... Interferon is a booster for the part of the natural immune system that fights yirouses..which URI is.... So it will probably work well... The side effect is that the body may become dependent on the interferon to maintain normal strength... That's why the usually do a week on and a week off to prevent the dependency.... Thus the question... when to use or when to save it for when its really needed.... My vet was one that wanted to save it but then we learned that FeLV+ cats can go from not acting quit normal to crashed in such a short time that I now have it in my house and his blessing at using it when ever I feel its necessary.... It almost always quality life.. Sometimes for only a few days and others much longer... Tad

Has anyone used Interferon for URIs treatment for your kitties? My Hannibal is on penicillin but still has yellow colored discharge sometimes, and remember people on the list using interferon for URIs - could tell me more about it? What are the potential side effect?
