Besides the gingivitis, Bea is healthy! When I got home and started researching 
it I thought it sounded harsh too.
The vet said it would help along with the abx to keep her gingivitis under 
control. The AZT is a 24 day supply.
In what I've found (which is very little information) on AZT for feline use it 
does say it's very toxic if not used properly. The vet said she has another 
client who uses it and has had great success but did not elaborate and not 
thinking I didn't ask since I always get so overwhelmed when I'm there. I 
always think of questions after the fact.
At this point I don't think I'm comfortable giving it to her until I can talk 
to the dr and get more information.

I'm wondering, Dawn, what medically besides Gingivitis, is troubling  
your sweet kitty?  I'm wondering if that's a rather harsh remedy for  
the situation...?
