> > Vicky, > I can't tell you much about the FIP, but as for the FELV, I can tell you the most important thing you can do for them is give them a good species-appropriate diet. I recommend a homemade or commercial raw diet. My felv+ (Abbey) has been on it for over 3 years and is doing remarkably well. She was dying when I got her as a stray. All her symptoms practically disappeared when I started feeding her the raw diet -- it was nothing short of amazing. I also supplement her diet with 250mg of l-lysine in her food daily, and I also give her 1/2 capsule of Transfer Factor tri-factor Plus everyday. I may be just one of the lucky ones, but I doubt it. I tribute her good health to her diet. This diet will keep their immune system functioning at its fullest. Feed it to all your cats. See catinfo.org and catnutrition.org. Low stress is also key to good health.
As for the vomiting, I would almost guarantee this diet will cure that. 5 or 6 years of vomiting can wreak havoc on a cats health. You didn't mention what you were feeding them. Dry food? That may be the culprit with the vomiting. Could be he is allergic to something in the food, or if it contains grains, that could be the culprit. Cats cannot digest grains...period. That is why lots of cats vomit on a regular basis. Yes, get your negative vaccinated every year as long as he doesn't have a reaction to it. I would definitely keep him after being re-homed so many times. Just my 2 cents...Good luck with your kitties!
