I think the better way to look at is: the sooner the better. Some
positive cats get treated when they're extremely symptomatic and can
recover from problems like nasty URIs or GI troubles. We've seen it
here. But, it's better not to wait, and I think that this is one place
where some vets do positive cats and their owners a real disservice.
As some of you may remember, the vet that tested Ember and found her
to be positive just suggested that we drop in every six months instead
of every year. She said *nothing* about interferon, supplements, good
food, low stress environments, etc. Not helpful! :( I've considered
writing her a letter to relate my experiences.

I'm hoping you're wrong Gloria.
We've managed to get rid of a lot of symptoms through homeopathy,
supplements, quality food and
excessive TLC. I couldn't bare to think it is too late.

When is the best time to start Immuno-Regulin? When they still
have no symptoms? I can still hardly believe Buzz has this
horrible disease. He seems so healthy and loves to play and has a
great appetite. How often do the success stories like Minstrels
come along? These postings have so much new information and the
internet sights have so much conflicting information that it is
hard to know what to think. I just know the little guy cleaning
himself in my lap right now deserves all I can do for him.
Does anyone know if a lot of playing exercise is good for a FeLV +
cat? He chases his toys so hard that he gets out of breath
Buzz had some vaccinations about a month ago, is he still in danger?
I have always had cats but this is so new and I feel so ignorant.
I am so glad for this site, I have already learned more real
information that seems like it will actually help Buzz then from
all the reading I've done for the last several weeks since I
learned he was FeLV positive.
Thank you everybody for all your advise.
