Hey everyone, I haven't been following the emails concerning strep A. but I actually looked into this when trying to figure out what to do with Autumn. There were a few studies out there but they were done about a decade or more ago, mostly by a vet in Texas. I called his lab to speak with him. Unfortunately he was no longer practicing there, but I spoke with a colleague of his who suggested the results weren't as promising as was hoped, there were some negative side effects and they had stopped investigating it.
I don't remember the exact details but I thought it was less promising than LTCI. If I get a chance later today I will do a literature search and try to find the paper. I'll forward whatever I find. Also, a quick update on Autumn. Tomorrow I will get a CBC on her and let you all know. Her energy is up and she's getting mischievous again. She's slowing gaining weight back - the bones are less prominent again. She continues to do well. I know it may not be the cure all for felv but I feel there is at least some hope of treatment. Sally I hope Lukey is improving.
