We took Murphy in on 04/25 because he developed a sneeze-first we thought allergies because we had been opening the doors and the screens were letting in pollens-everything is blooming. They gave us Cyproheptadine-1/2 tab 2x a day, but we switched to 1/4 tab 3x a day. The 1/2 had him sleeping all the time...but no sneezing-as soon as he woke up, the sneezing began again. We called the Dr and picked up some Penn G and I gave him 5/8 cc injection-the sneezing was gone by the 2nd day. I just gave him the 2nd shot today. We had both Murphy and Rosie FeLV tested again-both still positive...sigh, we had such high hopes. Murphy's RBC is 1/2 what it was in Jan. He seems ok, just not 100%-he has lost a little weight. I stopped giving interferon a few months ago to try and save a little-bad idea-I have him back on 2x a day now. They have both been on the LTCI since September and doing great, but I have them out to 10 weeks now since they were doing so well. I took it for granted. I'm not sure what the blood test results mean-he had been staying in the same ranges until this last test, maybe his being sick with the sneezing (no cough, or snotty nose-just bouts of sneezing) has affected the tests. Also this last week, he has developed a "weepy" eye. That worries me the most-all 4 of the brothers that died before they were a year old had one weepy looking eye. Here are the results, maybe someone will have an idea. Sorry to throw this out there-but I know there are some medical savvy people on this site. Any help is so greatly appreciated.
