Definitely try to get some LTCI.  We put dexter on it for the last few weeks of 
his life and I feel that if we had started sooner, he might have lived a bit 
longer.  LTCI is only available from the manufacturer: - if your 
vet will order it, they will overnight the medication to the vet.  I was paying 
roughly $60 per dose at 1 dose every three days. It is possible to be more 
aggressive with the treatment and administer it daily. The other up-side to 
this medication is that it is administered via sub-cutaneous injection - 
immunoregulin, on the the other hand, is via IV injection.  The IV injection 
will stress the kitty out about 1000 times more than a sub-q injection. 
Immunoregulin also made Dexter spike a fever after each dose - something he 
didn't need and quickly wore him out.  Tcyte can also slow the inevitable 
appearance of dreaded lymphatic cancer.  Many benefits with this stuff.  Please 
call the tcyte folks tomorrow - they are very helpful and will give you all the 
info you need.
