It is so good to hear from you Sue. I've been hoping to see good news about Buzz. I'm praying that he can make a full recovery and that you can figure out a diet and
supplement routine that will keep him stable.

We're pulling for you. Please keep us posted.

Sue, some fresh air on the deck sounds like good medicine to me. Glad it is regenerative and you got the doxy. Usually when a kitty isn't feeling well several small meals per day are better. You might try crushing up a folic acid tablet and adding it to his food with the vitamins. My FeLV+ kitties get 200 mcg of folic acid/day just as a precaution plus their Super B Complex..

Subject: [Felvtalk] Buzz anemia update
Date: Monday, July 28, 2008, 7:21 PM

    Hello everyone -

Today I got doxycycline from the vet. It came in 50mg capsules which I have

to open up and divide in two. I mix half with water and give it to Buzzy in a

syringe. Half a capsule every 12 hours. Tomorrow he goes for some kind of

protein test and possibly set him up with a specialist for a transfusion.

When I questioned the vet she said his anemia is not the non- regenerative

kind. Doesn't that mean there is more hope? He is still eating fairly

well. I have cooked him chicken, and I am mixing some vitamins in with

tuna. I feed him a little bit as often as I can; he seems to eat more that

way. In a little while I will take him out on the deck to sit in my lap for

    a while.  He loves smelling the fresh air.

I hope this message goes through to the list, this is my fourth try.

    Thanks for all the help, more suggestions are still appreciated.
