Heather, I rescued a pair of FeLV kittens. Sissy always had enlarged lymph nodes especially at her neck. Rocket never did. I tried several things but never helped. I feed her the highest quality food she would eat supplemented with L-lysine, B12, folic acid. I enjoyed 4 years with my sweet Sissy.
Love and treasure Squiggy every day. That really is the best medicine.

He has stayed pretty healthy since, with just one secondary infection that was treated with antibiotics. But the lymph nodes in his throat are swollen and stay that way all the time, Sometimes they are larger than others but they are always swollen. My vet doesn't seem concerned by this. She just says it is a symptom of the FeLv. But it concerns me becasue that is what made me take him to the vet 6 months ago. His lymph nodes were swollen and he was having trouble breathing. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything I can do for him diet or medication wise to decrease the swelling? He also has a licking issue. He will lick everything. But when I had a bloodwork check on him the vet said it looked good. That he was just slightly anemic but very good for a FeLv cat. I feed him wet food in the morning and add Lysine powder and Missing Link to it. Any other recommendations? I would really appreciate any advice. He is eating well and maintaining his weight but I want to stay as far ahead of the disease as I can. I do some rescue work out of my house and lost a very young kitten to FeLv already. Squiggy was rescued from a chemical plant but was such a standout sweet kitten that I couldn't bring myself to give him up. Thank you for your help. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
