El, >From everything I've read, the virus is extremely fragile. It can only live outside of a cat for, at most, a few minutes. I think I read that it can hold together in water for longer, so I make sure I don't drop any water when I'm carrying bowls. Unless, the cats are sneezing like crazy, I doubt any of it would end up on your clothes for long enough to cause concerns for your other cats.
I give Ember the recommended dose of DMG from Vetri-Science' packaging. I think it's .5 ml. Not sure about that. I've read that, for FeLV+ cats, the dose should be doubled. I only read that one place, though, so I haven't followed through. For Transfer Factor, I think you'd be best served by contacting the company, 4Life. The web site is: <http://www.4life.com> I don't know if I said this, but with diarrhea, I've given Ember raw canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filler). She will just eat it up, without even stirring it into food. I've been told that the best way to give pumpkin is to stir a tablespoon (or so) into canned food. I hope Milli's diarrhea goes away soon, and that the other FeLV+ cats are able to fight off the virus.
