I should really say that I have never used the injectable form but it is 
injected intramuscularly and doesn’t last very long, and will be far less 
convenient to give than the pills. As I mentioned in a previous response, the 
effect on the liver appears to be transitory and fades after the Winstrol is 
discontinued. You might consider an initial intramuscular injection by your 
vet, to give a quick boost to baseline, and then continuing with daily pills.

I am also THRILLED to hear that Winstrol is used regularly in Itally for FeLV. 
Finally, SOMEWHERE that is using a medication that actually shows some promise 
against this hideous virus, and doesn’t appear to be swayed by the highly 
irrelevant athletic doping scandals!

Good luck Marlene and keep us posted.

Dear all,
Good news: Winstrol is legal in Italy for animals and is called stargate. I 
found a pharmacist who can send it to me in Belgium or I will go to Rome myself 
on Saturday, he also said it is highly used in Italy for felv cats.
What is better, pills or injections? 
I thought of pills to cause less stress, but I read it may be more toxic for 
the liver compared to the injectable one .
I am also bringing the cat to a French specialised clinic this afternoon just 
to  get a better opinion than the Belgian one.

Thanks all for your support.
