Hi Amy,

I'm sorry to hear about Wolfie. I don't have most of my email handy, so
I can't look back at what you've written. Have you tried Transfer
What about Liquid DMG? These are affordable supplements, and they *seem*
to have helped in the case of my FeLV+ girl, Ember. DMG especially 
*seems* to have little possibility of any negative consequences. When
I've seen wbc issues in Ember, I've *seemingly* reversed some losses
with these supplements. Please note how I use the word *seem*. 

Neupogen might be an option. It's something I'm keeping in mind, 
but I don't know much about it, other than it helps with wbc generation. 
I believe some folks have used ImmunoRegulin in similar situations to
and had good results. Maybe the archives will shed some light on that. 
And I could be wrong, but I seem to remember Epogen helping in non-regen 
anemia, though that makes absolutely no sense. Again, the archives will
hopefully help.

LTCI might help with wbc generation. I'm seeing lots of mention of it
on the list, but I'm very leery of it. We FeLV+ caregivers are so eager
for anything that might help, but the marketing Immulan has engaged in
has been questionable. Of course, that doesn't mean that it doesn't
but the company haven't done enough proper tests to provide real
that their product works. It's good that we're getting anecdotal
on the list, but that only goes so far. 

Finally, I wonder if Pet Tinic might not help the rbc that Wolfie is
to produce. It's really just nutrients and nothing terribly unusual...
mainly iron, I think. 

Obviously, when it comes to any of these options, please consult your

My hopes and prayers for Wolfie's health, and for your ability to find
something that might help his blood counts.
