Hi Alice, What I like about LTCI is it enhances the immune system as opposed to alot of medicines which "overpower" the disease, with possible side effects. I don't see any practical way to "overdose" LTCI. I give monthly LTCI shots to my healthy FeLV/FIV positives. I'd probably go to once a week for a few weeks if they were showing symptoms like Murphy. If I understand the dosing schedule, the initial period is a "build up" and the monthly is maintenance. But if a cat gets ill, especially an FeLV positive, their immune systems could use the extra "help". If Rosie's blood work hasn't changed, I wouldn't think she would need the boost, but if she is having any symptoms, it couldn't hurt. I'd probably do it, but I believe in aggressively addressing any sign of symptoms in my Felv/FIV positives.

His Absolute Reticulocyte count is now 35200. Both Murphy and Rosie have been on LTCI injections since last September. We began treatment before any symptoms appeared and their HCT levels were in the high 30s, low 40s. I just got the faxes on their blood tests. Murphy's HCT is 22.3, Rosie's is 46.5. I am thinking of giving them another injection tomorrow, the last one was June 27-it will be 28 days-but the other thing is, should I do both cats or just Murphy? Is there such a thing as having a too high HCT level (like Rosie's 46.5)? Just watching my Murphy sleep and hurting because we can't stop this train wreck.
