I would be a bit concerned about why he has been on clavamox for a year. That is a LONG time to be on any antibiotic. A decent quality food, as little stress as possible -not much you can do about the situation - and lots of love and careful attention to his health. Many of us give various supplements in hopes it will help keep the immune system strong. I don't think there is any hard data that most of what we give is not more for us than it is for the cat. I'm sure you will hear about a lot of different supplements, personally, I use Moducare.
You are a good person for taking in this kitty.

Spicey has feline leukemia going on 2 years. I took the cat in & have him in a spare room away from my cats. He has been on clavamox for about 1 yr per my friend. I am waiting on the vet to call to find out all the specifics. Is there any special food/vitamins/drugs to help? I know nothing of this disease. I have been during research & says the cat should not be stressed. Unfortunately, Spicey has been stressed as his owner was in the hospital since last Tuesday. A neighbor was feeding him but he was hiding under the couch as he is very timid. And now he is in a strange place, so he has to be very stressed. It has been 3 hours & he has not come out of his carrier, I do not know if he will be friendly with me but he has not hissed at all. I think I maybe taking on too much but in a small way I feel like I am keeping my friend alive too. Any ideas/suggestions/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joyce & Spicey _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
