Hi Sherri I am beyond thrilled that the Winstrol/Prednisone/Doxy combination has helped with Bogey, particularly given the extremely poor shape that Bogey was in when you started the treatment. I am surprised at the low doses, but whatever works for you is wonderful. You are doing it just right, checking her blood levels and adjusting the dosage thereafter.
Good luck to you and to Bogey, and thank you for working so hard to give Bogey a fighting chance.

I was a pretty active person on this board when my new stray kitten Bogey was diagnosed as FELV+ in 2016. We had a rough go of it the first six months and you all were very helpful and kind and I can't thank you enough for that. The information was invaluable. I have become ill myself since that time so I fell off the planet for a bit but I wanted to take a moment to let you know about my girl. Bogey is doing very well. 8/2016 - 1/2019 she had been taking 1mg of Winstrol (half of a capsule) and a half of a Prednisilone. (sp) I also treated her with a series of Doxy (7 days) once every 3 months. These dosages seem low but anything higher made her liver very sick and she was only barely 5 pounds initially. When I took her for her biannual Chem 17 test 1/2019 ALL of her levels were completely normal. She has gained about 3.5 pounds and has really thrived. She went almost 4 months last year without the need of any kind of treatment. Her numbers dropped a bit last in November, just the low side of normal and but very low platelets. So she is getting just the Winstrol 4 times a month. I will know next week at her checkup if that needs to be increased. My vet says that this is not uncommon in the winter months...hibernation/longer nights/colder temps. So here we are. I am so thankful that we found a vet willing to try to save her by prescribing these meds for her. She was failing so fast that I know she would have been gone years ago. Nothing felt as good as sending her blood test results and a photo of her to our original vet that said she should be destroyed because there were "plenty of other healthy cats that need homes". Best to all.
