Hi Beth How are you? Dr chrisler said to keep him on it for 3 weeks, and then when I took the others in for testing, i saw Dr metzger. We were discussing Fletch and she mentioned that he could stay on it indefinitely if need be. But, I think I'm seeing some improvement today. His coat looks much better and he actually trotted across the floor today(-: yes, I saw a little bounce to his step. Warmed my heart! I'm with you, i vaccinate my cats, mainly because of panleukopenia, but I think it definitely drops their immune system. I also had a cat die from FIP. I loved her so so much and it broke my heart to lose her. Her name was Yogi and she was a botle baby. I immediately got on the FIP list. I was on it for a couple years and learned a lot from them, just like i am learning a lot from all of you(-; Tjis last year my daughter lost her 15 year old cat to CRF. We researched together to learn all we could. I think the most important thing i learned was that feline vaccine is grown on feline kidney cells and causes an imflammatory response on the kidneys everytime they are vaccinated, They think this could help lead to CRF. So vaccinating ccan be overdone, once every 3 yrs is enough and maybe too much!
