I have had several who loved catnip and more (especially ferals) who
thought it was for the birds. Susan has some very good remedies for
teeth problems. She has been
very helpful with Dixie.......the only problem she has has tooth
related and it may be because of the time she spent on the streets
alone/not FeLV related. Who knows? I would encourage you to
contact her or Dr. Boswell. Even Dixie relaxes with them.

I went to Dr. Maier's website & it looks like she could be of some
help. Not just for Buzz but also for one of my negatives, Tucker,
who has a problem with his immune system attacking the bacteria on
his teeth. He has had all but his two top front canines removed and
he still has sores in his mouth. My vet doesn't know what else to
do for him.
I went out and purchased something called a Comfort Zone diffuser
tonight that says it has Feliway. Maybe it will help Buzz chill
out. Funny thing is, he doesn't like catnip. I have heard that
there are cats that don't but he is the first one I have ever know of.
Thanks for your help,

If you have a good holistic vet around check with her. If not you
might want to consult with Susan Maier.... http://www.horizonvetserv.com/
or Dr. E. . Boswell 502.499.9663. Both do phone consultations
and have had wonderful results with FeLV+ cats. Both are "real"
vets who use alternative medicines. I know and love both of them.
Dixie sees Dr. Boswell regularly and Dr. Maier on occasion (a matter
of convenience for me and I've known Dr. Boswell for 15 or so
years). I know you are scared.
From my point of view, I use colostrum to boost immunity. Dr. Maier
is able to get it for me in capsules and Just Born has it in the
powder. Dixie is an only cat right now but she has had company from
a cat that spent the winter on the porch. My concern was boosting
her immunity as well as his. She eats Primal Raw, Wellness, and a
few other no grain, high protein foods with extra veggies.
Try Feliway spray in the room Buzz is in and add a catnip plant. It
may help him. And don't forget his immune system either.

This coming Friday the last of my 5 FeLV- cats will get his
booster. Then I will wait the appropriate amount of time and
release Buzz from his prison room into the general population. I
am scared to death. I would rather continue to keep them seperate
but Buzz is crazy to escape his room every time we open the door
and the time I spend behind the closed door with him is taking away
from my family, not to mention the other cats. My question is
this; is there anything anyone knows of besides the vaccinations
that I can do for my other cats that may help to protect them?
They are all being fed the Wellness canned food. Buzz will soon be
getting a vitamin suppliment that is supposed to boost the immune
systems of FeLV+ cats that my vet found, but I doubt if it does
anything to stop the virus from shedding. Any advise would be
