I'm glad your vet is flexible and willing to help.  If BooBoo's
snifflies can get cleared up, I know his appetite will improve.  They
don't want stuff they can't smell.  Have you tried heating his food so
it's stinkier?  You may run out of the kitchen gagging, but he'll think
it's great.  As I'm sure you know, making sure kitties keep eating, no
matter what their FeLV status, is paramount.  We've been through 3
separate instances of fatty liver disease, which is the end result of
insufficient eating, and I can tell you we are ever-vigilant to make
sure everybody is eating.

Subject: the good stories

Thank you all for sharing these uplifting stories.  I'm tempted to print
them out and show to my vet.  I called his office this morning and asked
the assistant if I could possibly fax a list of questions and
suggestions regarding BooBoo's care and then come in to talk to him.
Well he called me back at work and thanked me for doing that and even
mentioned how "intelligent" and "informed" I was.  I told him I had been
doing a lot of reading and all these suggestions came from this group.
I thought he might laugh at it but he was very impressed.  He is totally
in agreement about the course of Doxycycline and said tonight we'd sit
down and discuss the use of Interferon.  I know it is going to cost us a
fortune, everything does over here, but just by chance my dad gave me a
thousand dollars for my birthday so that will certainly help.  He did
mention that they do transfuse animals but the same problem would
surface in time and it can be dangerous anyway.  Not even going to
consider that one.
So that's where we stand.  He needs to be checked tonight for his
breathing and runny nose and come up with some way to get him to eat
more.  Nothing I've offered him seems to meet his approval.
Talk to you all later.
