Ember's first post-test vet put her on interferon alpha. I'm not sure
that it does anything, but she's done so well that I have no plans to
stop giving it to her. Glad that Tofu is such a strong girl. I hope
she's staying cool right now. It's terrible in AR right now, though
we're supposed to get some relief in a few days.

I have used alpha interferon for her in the past, my vet had prescribed
it for another FIV kitty I had (remember, Saki Tofu has both).
According to the vet, he has seen the interferon provide some benefit
with FIV but not much with FeLV. But for the most part, she is not on
anything regularly. The last time she had one of her overheating
episodes, my normal vet was unable to see her so I took her to a vet
our rescue uses…he told me if she had tested positive for FeLV in 2008
she should be dead by now, and was going to call my old vet to check
the result. I explained that she was tested before I got her, and that
she also had a positive IFA. She seems to have a persistent enlarged
lymph node, and a slightly enlarged liver which is not causing any
problems for her – she is WAY more active than I bargained for, lol! So
it’s nothing I’m doing, it is ALL her!
