I have never heard of this, but we started using coconut oil because it
tolerates higher temperatures than other oils before becoming saturated fat.

Where and who is this man, Mark McCandlish - what does he do?
I read that hydrogen peroxide can cure FeLV - but have yet to find anything
on it anywhere.

Subject: [Felvtalk] coconut oil

I was wondering if anyone has heard of this, a woman on FB is claiming that
coconut oil given for approximately 4 weeks will cure a cat with FeLV. I
wrote to her and told her that there was in fact no cure and she told me to
talk to a man named Mark McCandlish, though there are several so I was not
able to look him up.

I am a licensed vet tech and am constantly researching FeLV and have not
seen anything of the sort out there. One would think if a cure would have
popped up that it would be talked about everywhere especially by the FeLV
cat parents crowd. 

I find it frustrating when people post information on FB under cats that are
in need of homes and do not have their facts straight. They are either
sharing that FeLV is this freakishly contagious disease and that all FeLV
cats must be kept separate or euthanized or they are spouting about "cures".
Those of us who have FeLV babies and are praying for that cure to save them
don't want that fake carrot dangled in front of our faces.

Anyway sorry for the rant, I just wanted to be sure I am not out of the loop
before I keep arguing with her about it.

Also there are 2 beautiful, sweet cats in Austin TX who are felv + and in
need of a home asap. If anyone may be interested please let me know and I
will forward the link with the info and pics. They are incredibly sweet and
very cute!
