Hi Kat,

       Yup, or ehrlichiosis, or toxoplasmosis, and even bartonella (as opposed to Hemobart/Mycoplasma felis) is sometimes responsive to Doxy. That's why I was curious as to the reason for that particular Abx. Especially appropriate if Jynx had/has outdoor access.

There are so many variables (

At this point I really just treat the symtoms or conjectured causes of whatever comes up.

Maybe the Doxy was Rx'd in case there is any Hemobart causing anemia??

Hi Lauren and Jynx,

                       There's usually somone around to help, so please ask whenever you have questions. I have two confirmed positives, two probables and who knows how many more. Long story :( But, can you tell us a bit more? What is the strength of the doxycycline suspension you're using? I ask because it's such a small amount, but if you've had it compounded, it's probably formulated just for him. Usual dose I've used for cats is 10 mg/kg once daily, but your Vet may have better info about maintaining therapuetic concentration with divided dosing. Here's one reference,

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3187973

I'm guessing that Doxy is being used in case there's something other than the FeLV contributing to the enlarged spleen and anemia, but maybe you can give us more info, and whether it might be of use to some of us, as well. My boys are on interferon (human) and DMG consistently and Zenequin and Famciclovir as needed.

Sorry you have to be here, but glad you found us. Maybe we can help.

All the best,

Margo

Hey everyone, I didn't realize y'all really used this but I'm glad you do! My Jynx is newly diagnosed FeLV positive and I've been trying to learn as much as possible about the disease. Unfortunately, his has already manifested itself and has a chronic fever, an enlarged spleen, and a little jaundice. He's on 0.5ml Doxy 2x day, 0.5 Prednisone 2x day, VitaDrops, and a lysine supplement. He's feeling a lot better now but I'm still worried....

Hi Dotty,

Congrats on helping Tiger!  It's so nice to hear about happy endings.

To help Shamus, you will need to determine what his constitutional remedy should be to help re-balance his energy so his body can heal.  The good folks over at Holisticat have much more knowledge about homeopathy than I do (especially the list-mom, Sandy).  The website is   http://www.holisticat.com/ and the forum is  http://www.holisticat.com/forum/

Sending healing, stay strong thoughts to both you & Shamus.

Hi everyone out there.  It's me again - Dotty.  With another cat problem.  

But first, ........an update on Tiger.  I want you all to know that because of your help and support and advice and financial assistance, Tiger is a success story.  He was vetted last year by me and finally given to my sister in law.  He has overcome his gum issues with the  FIV and wheezing problem finally.  He has a wonderful, loving home with my sister in law and niece as an indoor cat.  He has filled out and is very healthy and happy.  I owe a part of his success to you - to the people who were able to contribute to his costly care.  And to everyone in this group - a wonderful group full of supportive people and full of advice, stories and a wealth of tried and true information.  Thank you all.  Dotty Winkler   

Back to my cat at home - Shamus - 10 + YO male.  Stray i took in last year to save.  Had urinary crystals.  Cured of that with surgical procedure.  However, contracted Staph and E coli infec from the catheterization and surgical prc. .  Hospitalized at vet with IV fluids and sent home with anti b however is having a hard time throwing this off.  Are there any homeopathic remedies for this that you all could recommend?  What are yourexperiences with this?  Thank you, worried about Shamus - Dotty

Yahoo. was having some problems a few weeks ago. 
Sometimes nobody, thankfully, is having any problems. 
Sometimes no news is good news
