Thanks for the link. I have a holistic vet but like to be able to point
friends in other areas of the country to a source.
If you have men who will
exclude any of God's creatures
from the shelter of
compassion and pity, you will have men who
will deal likewise with
their fellow man.

Subject: Re: Autumn - Update
I'm happy to hear Autumn is doing better.
Here is a link to the list for the Association of Homeopathic
I use both an allopathic and homeopathic vet and with the help of really
generous and experienced people
on this list, my once very symptomatic Felv kitten is doing well. Her
progress has occurred over several months
and it has never been without setbacks.
Getting Autumn to eat and hopefully put some weight on is the important
first step. If you go through the archives
of this list, there are many good suggestions for appetite stimulants.
Giving her food that is warm is one that
helped me...also, I put warm water on wet food (really gross) and find
that she will begin to lap up the water and
then the food. It is a soup of sorts, but she gets it down.
My homeopathic vet has come up with a remedy that is being used in Africa
(with some success for Hiv/Aids).
It is called Thulium met, and I think it has helped my cat in several
ways. I give her several supplements, so it
is difficult to know exactly what is doing what, but about one week after
the first treatment we were able to
get rid of diarrhea, which had been impossible to treat.
In terms of swollen glands, hopefully as her immune system gets stronger,
they will go down. Getting her to eat
and gain weight is the first step. The supplements and remedies that
helped MeMe were;
Thulium met (homeopathic remedy)
liquid DMG (to boost immunity)
l-lycine ( helps fight viruses)
Forti-Flora (probotic} to increase immunity, support digestive tract and
Just Born (with colostrum ) caloric supplement
I am sorry this list has been in such turmoil when you really need help.
Please continue to ask questions and report
Autumn's symptoms. There are enough people here to help you.
We're rooting for you and Autumn.

Thanks to everyone who responded. Autumn is about 11 weeks old. She has
really responded the treatments and has perked up considerably. The
Pedialyte definitely helped. Once we brought her home from vet, I
started her immediately on her antibiotics, but within the hour she had
vomiting and diarrhea. She was very weak and so I would smear Nutri Cal
on her paws and squirt Pedialyte in her mouth. After every treatment she
would perk up and the vomiting stopped that night. She still had
diarrhea the next morning but I was able to get her to start eating the
prescription food off my fingers. Today she is playful, but thin. We're
trying to fatten her up a bit and get her energy levels back up. She's
such a precious blessing, we are very grateful that she turned around.
