Hi Lauraine, here's my advice to you...Keep your kitty as stress free as possible. Give him the best food you can afford, nothing is more important (except for love) than good nutrition. In my opinion, the best thing to feed him is a raw diet. If the ingredients are available to you, you can make your own food. Look at catnutrition.org and catinfo.org...this is the diet cats are supposed to have. I've been feeding this to my felv+ Abbey for 4 years now, and she is in amazing health. She was on the verge of death when I got her and this diet is what I whole-heartedly attribute to her excellent health. It may be daunting to make the food in the beginning, but I assure you it will be well worth your trouble. If you simply cannot source the ingredients, then give him the best grain-free food you can find...that means no kibble at all. Btw, I also give her 250mg of l-lysine/day and also give her a 1/2 capsule of Transfer factor tri-factor plus/day (for humans) added to her raw food. I saw extraordinary changes in all my 5 cats after switching to this raw diet. A good diet cures many, many ailments and keeps the immune system strong. A strong immune system will naturally keep disease at bay. I make this food for my cats as well as for many friends (I have a small cat food business), and I have seen and heard of drastic improvements in these cats' health.
If your kitty is not eating, I suggest you assist feed him with some plain meat baby food (no onions/garlic) watered down, with a syringe. I wish you lots of luck.
