Sorry, I can't give you info on how to search archives, but I can tell you
to give Spanky CoQ10 for keeping gums and heart and much more in good shape.
Get the GNC Vegetarian formula; it comes in powder form in capsules - give
50mg daily, sprinkled into food (tasteless). All my FIV/FeLV positive and
heart patient cats get it daily - really works wonders!  If the
antihistamine "Periactin" in liquid form is still available, it's great for
stimulating appetite! Natalie

Subject: [Felvtalk] how do you search the felv archives?


I'm trying to figure out how to search the felvtalk archives but I just get
a list and no search box. Is there some way to search all of them at once?

Spanky's gum around his fang seems slightly inflamed. Someone on this list
(I think it was this list) posted a rinse they use for
stomatitis/inflammation and I can't find the post.  If anyone knows what
this is or has another alternative, please let me know. 

Spanky's labs a few wks ago were all in the normal range, except as usual
the WBC is still very low -- only about 2400 (up from 996 a few months ago);
HCT was at the low end of normal (previous lab was 28%) -- the pet-tinic 2x
a day seems to have helped. Still, he's more tired/lays around all the time
and is really slow up and down the stairs and I have trouble getting him to
eat.  He has gone from 10 lbs down to 8.6 this year and doesn't have much
interest in food.  I assist feed him on days he won't eat anything.  Anyway,
it's frustrating as his lab numbers have gotten better or remained the same
since the last tests  yet he continues to decline. His non healing ulcer on
his face came back as "consistent with feline eosinphilic granuloma complex"
and my vet said the treatment for that is steroids which will further
depress Spanky's immune system. We take it one day at a time and there are
days I wonder how much longer he will make it :-(  FELV
 stinks and it is sad to see a once strong, vital animal become depressed,
lethargic and weak because of this awful disease.  

He's on Pet-tinic - 1ML 2x per day, 1/2 cc of Interferon once a day, LTCI
injection every 2-3 weeks, Transfer factor tri factor plus, lysine and I'm
putting vit E oil on the facial ulcer. 
I asked the vet about cyproheptadine for an appetite stimulant but I didn't
really like the side effects. 

Thanks for listening,
Stacy and Spanky
