Unfortunately, not all vets are current on the latest thinking on such "death sentence" diseases as FeLV and FIV. It's so important to find one who is knowledgeable and willing to work with a kitty through its various issues. There are many knowledgeable and supportive vets out there, and often the ones who are not knowledgeable welcome any info you can give them, so don't be discouraged. If this vet persists in her "he must be suffering" viewpoint it might be good to shop around. Good luck with "your" ferals. In case you haven't come across it, [EMAIL PROTECTED] is a wonderful resource. Some of the members can be a little hard-line about some things, but the files section of the web page is a treasure trove of good info on trapping, vetting and other aspects of feral caretaking. Many of them are working with little or no money themselves. The co-listmom, Gesine, gives great down-to-earth advice. Diane R.

This was a new vet I went to and am now going to ask more questions. Being new to felv i didnt know much. I took her word that he was suffering and would only get worse. It's a little hard for me at this time because i lost my job so finances are low. But I am trying to find help so this doesnt happen again. The feralcat group at yahoo has been very helpful about tnr if i can find a vet who will help me, since i am not working and have the time to do it. Again Thanx so much for your support.

My sister is in North Carolina and they have TNR program that cost only like 15 dollars per spay and neuter. Good luck. t Sharon Harde _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org This electronic mail transmission and any attachments are confidential and may be privileged.
