I'm so glad you're back. That's an excellent suggestion, for Hideyo
and anyone else that is assist feeding. You're experience and input
are always so appreciated.
Hideyo, have you joined the assist feeding group yet? It's usually
such a stressful thing to have to assist feed someone
My vet told me that the Interferon isn't effective added to water, or
food. Even if it was, how would you monitor individual intake that
way? I don't think it's possible to od them on it though. It has no
taste at all, it's just like water. You could try adding it to a tiny
bit of clear
Thanks Jen-I will try that when I get home from work
tonight. Hopefully it will work a lot better!

Because of Belinda's experience with feeding tubes, I would absolutely

I did a quick Google and didn't see anything about dilution

Medical and Surgical Group in Ventura CA (805-339-2290). Have them ask

You know when caring for bottle babies there's a trick to help a failing
kitten bounce back... You can rub just the tiniest bit of clear corn
syrup on their gums to give them some energy, it has helped get someone
eating that wasn't interested, or acting lethargic. Nutri cal has corn

Hi, Belinda, thank you so much for your encouragement- before I started
assist feeding, I did consider feedinb tube - my vet thoughts that she
could put one through his nose without anthesia (I was really concerned
about him going through the anethesia) Is feeding tube very
uncomfortable? I don't

How is Bandy today? I am sorry to hear that his eyes
are having trouble. Did you take him to that
specialist in Carrollton? Smookie is having trouble
too. Please keep us posted on what the vet says and
I'll keep Bandy in my prayers.

My 10 year old domestic short hair just got diagnosed with FIV and FELV last week. She was lethargic, not eating and drinking, etc which is why I brought her in and how we found out the diagnosis. She ended up with a 105.9 fever and was hospitalized for several days with IV fluids and antibiotics.
