okay, here's the latest. part of me is screaming hissed, because it turns out that dear josie is probably NOT positive to start with--she came from a shelter that we know is using the new test, and NONE of the FIV/FeLVs, supposedly, from there have retested positive.
she went to ANOTHER vet hospital to have the transfusion continued, as of last night, she was up to 19.... so the first vet who suspected mycoplasma hemofelis, but didn't test for it, nor put her on doxy, was the real culprit. lots (LOTS) of vet bills later, but josie's a much happier cat, and now we're just trying to smooth the feathers of all the humans involved. PLEASE enter your good vets' info into the database at www.adopt.bemikitties.com so we know where to find help when it's needed. thanks. MC -- Spay & Neuter Your Neighbors!
