Yes the the immuno-regulin worked on Smokey's fevers. Some vets say the equistim (immuno-regulin)needs to be given IV but the vet I used said you can do it subq. It worked for him. I can't remember exactly how many shots they would fix up for me. I think it was anywhere from 10 to 12. It cost me around 20 to 30 dollars. I kept them refrigerated. Smokey would have never tolerated them doing the IV. He hates the vets. I hope this will help.
