Lance-when my Tucson had real low wbc a number of years ago, my vet gave her
a series of immune-regulin injections.  Whether it was that or something
else, the wbc went back up in a few weeks.

Hi Sally,


Thank you for thinking of Ember and I. I'm so sorry to read that all your
FeLV+ cats have gone. I remind myself that the time I've had with Ember has
been wonderful, and that she may have more time. I want to have hope, but
I'm feeling really down right now. I appreciate your prayers. Take care.

Hi Lance,


 I have thought of you recently. I remember you kindness when I was dealing
with this awful disease. All infected cats are at the Rainbow's Bridge. I
will keep Ember in my prayers.

Hi everyone,

A few of you may remember me from years ago. My Ember tested positive for
FeLV almost exactly seven years ago, in 2006. She was four years old then.
There have been a few minor illnesses since that wouldn't have been unusual
for a non-FeLV cat, but she's otherwise been very healthy.

Ember's white blood cell count has been persistently low. Other than when
she's had a few colds (when it shot up to around 7 to 7.5), it's been around
3.75 to 4.15. She went to the vet two days ago for a regular checkup, and
her count is only a bit over 3. Ember's vet prescribed Clavamox, I assume,
as a prophylactic against infection.

Needless to say, this is scary news. Ember is almost 11, and we're probably
heading toward a time when any cat's immune system would cease to be as
efficient as it once was. For a FeLV+ cat, that's obviously dangerous. I'm
wondering if anyone has had recent experience with any treatments that help
stimulate white blood cell production. Please let me know what you think.

Best wishes to all of you and your cats,
