I have seven cats, the youngest being Taz was diagnosed with FeLv when she started getting sick after about 1 month with my other negative kitties all of which are vacinated. I took Taz in to get her looked at and to get her shots. That's when they tested her for FeLv and she came back positive. I feed her stinky salmon and white tuna, some Fancy Feast kitten food and some baby food, whatever I can get her to eat. She hates the Science Diet the vet recommended. I'va also boiled chicken for her for the broth and meat. I've had her on Imulan and have seen some mixed results but she is gaining weight, happy and bouncy so I'm continuing with the expensive treatments. She also get Pet Tinic everyday and DMG. I've seperated her from my other cats, which I hate because she was buddies with my three legged tuxedo kitty, but this was recommended by the vet. She said that vacinations are not a guarantee against the disease if the cats are exposed to it enough. All of my kitties are indoor kitties except one does get outdoor roaming priviledges because it gives him a better attitude. The rest of the cats get there outdoor stuff on a large screened in porch basically built just for them. It's hard having a FeLv kitty because I travel so much for work which means I board her at the vets while I'm gone which of course stresses her some. The people love her at the vet but I think it directly affects her wellness with regard to the blood work-up and down. Sorry for the long diatribe.
