Happy to help, Gloria. If you need any information at all about the protocol, please keep my numbers (below) and call me any time. You may have guessed by now that I am very passionate about this and beyond anxious to start seeing pet owners trying this safe and effective protocol for their own sick cats. I hope to have a Web site with more information online soon.
In the meantime, I can't tell you enough how important it is to read Dr. Fred Klenner's Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C (full text available online at http://www.seanet.com/~alexs/ascorbate/198x/smith-lh-clinica l_guide_1988.htm), and Dr. Wendell Belfield's paper Megascorbic Prophylaxis and Megascorbic Therapy: A New Orthomolecular Modality in Veterinary Medicine (full text available online at http://www.seanet.com/~alexs/ascorbate/197x/belfield-w-j_int _assn_prev_med-1978-v2-n3-p10.htm). I have seen IV vitamin C work a miracle for three of my cats with lymphoma, upper respiratory and recently FIP, and though far from an expert on the subject, I am certainly an expert at trying. :-) Sally Snyder Jewell Tower Laboratories Corporation Manufacturers of Pauling Therapy Formulas for Coronary Heart Disease Since 1996 http://www.HeartTech.com E-mail: sa...@towerlaboratories.com Toll Free: 1-877-TOWER-LABS (1-877.869.3752) Voice: 502.368.2720; 502.368.2721 Fax: 502.368.0019 Pauling Therapy Information Web site: http://www.HeartTech.com Pauling Therapy Order Link: http://www.PaulingTherapyStore.com The products manufactured by Tower Laboratories Corporation, Inc. are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease in the United States.
