Would love to know how long your cat had been FeLV positive before being started on Imulan's LTCI and how long he was on the Imulan before the FeLV negative blood test? My cat just received his third injection and though he was heading into anemia and had stopped eating, with syringe feeding and three shots on board he's no worse than he was, so we're hopeful. Still, it would be wonderful to know what type of time frame we're looking at for any hope of a negative FeLV status with the LTCI.
