Sorry for not having written before, yesterday I was just too shocked
and needed a rest to gather my ideas. In addition, very high stress
always induces me sleep, just could not stay awake.
We haven't assessed more specifically the type of lymphoma yet, but are
going to do it between today and
I think you can get a free Yahoo email address to use in addition to the one
you have. I have one just to filter emails. Try that. I know it is a pain
and you have to remember to check both sites but it may be the quickest way
You can use other email addresses for Yahoo groups to send and receive
posts. I use several different email addresses. I am new to Gmail, but this
is where I receive all my yahoo group posts including the anemia group and
others. The only problem is with yahoo and sometimes for weird
I use aol and not yahoo but do not have a problem using the yahoo system.

email address and email her to ask what to do.

Thanks to everyone for your advice. From what I have read, I think that
he is not spraying. Maybe marking (thank God he hasn't felt the need to
claim me!) or peeing but not spraying. I called the vet about having
him neutered and they said he has to have a rabies shot and distemper.
Technically most state laws govern that a cat has to have rabies shots.
I'd check your county/state laws to make sure. You can, however, get
away with not giving them rabies shots if they are not licensed. I
don't think I've ever heard of states requiring you to give
Oh, and do tell whatever vet you go with about his litter box aversion
to rule out any possible urinary problems.
good point, hideyo--see if one of the vet tech's from you vet's office would
be willing to make a house call.

Well, I took Lucy to the local vet for a PCV check today because she has
been so lethargic that I was sure it was under 10 and I would need to decide on
a transfusion over the weekend. But it was 15! I was very glad about that. She
is still super-lethargic, though, although she has more

My veterinary clinic has similar rules about shots and staying overnight for
any reason there...but they do not insist on vaccines for FeVL+ or geriatric
cats (the front desk girls don't know this though).

It's not that she has fluid, it's the amount. At this point it is extremely

I am having what I believe is some success with 1 denosyl tablet a day on an

shredded paper as litter, but he continued to try to find the other stuff prior
to the denosyl), his gums are getting a fair amount of blood
Does your cat have liver problems? Is he anemic? Are you giving the denosyl
just for that? I had only heard of it helping with liver problems. If it is
for anemia itself, can you let me know the amount of SAMe that is in each
dose you give him? I would not be able to get denosyl tday, but

Thank you Michelle!
No need to apologize for anything, I imagine that everyone who posts here
has tunnel vision about their own animals, I know I do, and in any case, the
post you read was my first on the subject.
I'll give you all the info I have. It's denosyl, 90 mgs., by Nutramax. My
cat doesn't have any
Did your vet suggest denosyl for red blood cell production? I read the info
at the link you sent, and it does not mention using it for this.

I remember Kelly L on the list emailing me something about that - a vet
who was recommending to use SAMe for anemia - he explained how it works
for anemia cat - Kelly, if you still have the information - could you

Yes, they said they will give her lasix if/when the fluid makes her
uncomfortable. I think she is breathing a little funny, but the vet did not
much. The problem with lasix is that it leaches nutrients she needs and also

Compounded into a salve to rub inside the ear? What sort of price have you
been quoted? I know people in California, Florida and North Carolina who have
used Elavil compounded as a salve, with great results. Where are you located?
