Hi Fernanda, I may have missed the post regarding info about the MEgaC plus you're referring to here. I'm so glad for you and your kitty! Where do you get this product?

I wrote in a few weeks ago to get some advise on an FeLV positive kitten I had found in the middle of the street. Even knowing that he may not be around for long (the vet wanted to put him to sleep the day I found him) my boyfriend and I quickly fell in love with him and named him Tommy. After several hours of internet research, we decided to start giving him Mega C in hopes that it would boost his immune system enough to help him fight off the virus; at the very least, it couldn't hurt. After several weeks, we took Tommy to a different vet to be re-tested. This vet recommended sending the blood work to the lab, where they could do confirmatory tests if needed. We were ecstatic when she called to tell us that he is now testing negative; even she sounded surprised. The vet recommended that we get him tested again in a few weeks, just to make sure. I'm not sure if the Mega C made a difference or not, but we will continue giving it to him. The Mega C was not that expensive and it comes in a huge container that should last us quite a while. Even though we are still cautious, we are so happy that Tommy may have beaten this. When I found him, Tommy was tiny and starving to death - his eyes were not dilating properly, he couldn't walk without falling, he was failing to thrive. However, with regular meals, love and attention, he has grown to be a healthy, and quite mischievous, kitten. In the 6 weeks that he has been with us, he went from a pound and a half, to a full four pounds! Thank you for all the information you gave so freely. I know that many more kittens will benefit from your collective knowledge and care.
