Heather, Isabella would cry out if touched and had unexlained tremors (we 
thought she was dead at least twice) and high fever. She was anemic. She pulled 
through with care from internal med specialist. We had her on antitiobics and 
pred and painkillers, interferon and feline transfer factor. She did not quit 
eating which helped tremendously.
She had ultrasound which showed slightly enlarged spleen. Nothing else. 
I wish for you that you will get some answers...
please let us know what her person finds out?

  Subject: Hobbs, 1 Yr. old FELV, crashing hard


  Hello,

  I first joined this group a year ago in regards to a double-positive Mom and 
her kittens.

  All kittens cleared FIV, remained + for Leuk.  Only the two who stayed 
together remain, and one has crashed hard.

  I am not his caretaker but what I know is, he had a dental a little over a 
month ago due to stomatitis (lots of drooling & mouth pain).   That went well, 
then a few days ago he crashed very hard, not eating, not drinking, crying in 
pain...losing weight rapidly.

  He is to go to the vet today, but has anyone pulled a Leukemia+ kitty through 
a serious crash?   We are looking into Imulan but right now the caregiver fears 
he is suffering and can't wait for treatment.   We don't want him to die on 
IV's in a hospital.   His little Sister is very close to him, we always thought 
she'd go first as she's so much more fragile, we are so scared of not just 
losing this precious kitty, but also how it will affect his Sister.  Hobbs' 
caretaker loves him very, very much and the prospect of losing him is very 
painful for her.

  Any suggestions are appreciated, thank you for listening-

  Heather
