I've used program in the past, too, it worked wonders. Do be very careful about the meds you give for ringworm. I know there is a liquid that is toxic to FIV cats. Beth Dont Litter, Fix Your Critter! www.Furkids.org   --- On Wed, 3/3/10, Diane Tyler drty...@spenserslegacy.org wrote: From:

Thank-you to all who responded. GREAT help! I loved the KY vet link and the thoughts about a holistic remedy to be used if vaccinating. I talked to my vet and he does have the purevax. He prefers the 3 year adjuvanted rabies but will use the purevax. He also has the internasal distemper. He said

Topically I've used Golden Seal for ringworm, and it works well. If that doesn't work I try Gentian Violet (which is very purple and messy but has always worked well). Orally I've used Grisiofulvin once or twice. I have one FIV kitty with skin issues right now and am using Sebazole (sp)

Interferon worked great for us. Try stinky foods (Fancy Feast, Solid gold tuna, etc). Good info at Feline assisted feeding yahoo group about anorexia. Can sprinkle tuna flakes on her food to stimulate appetite, too. WATCH FOR DIARRHEA if you are trying new foods. Important to keep her eating. Glad

There has been several cases of rabid bats in Ky. This is a consideration. I have to ask what the odds are of a bat getting in the house, then what are the odds of it biting Copper or Thomas then what are the odds of it being rabid. Each person must decide. Ky accepts titers by the way

My poor sweet Casper is FeLV+. So by making the decision to mix I have condemned him. He is anemic and he is going on Doxycyclne and Prednosolone. Has anyone ever heard of a cat that has anemia living longer then a few months? ___ Felvtalk mailing

Oh crap. I remember how I felt a few months back when I found out that Bridget was positive - her brother Chutney suddenly crashed and died (he, too, was anemic) not even 5 weeks after testing negative on the snap test. I had both with my cats, and while I suspect they had contracted the virus

I'm so sorry to hear this. I've always mixed mine with no transmission. But that was a personal choice. I know some people on this list have successfully treated anemia. It depends on what is the underlying cause. They give Doxy in the hopes it is Hemobart. I hope for the best for you and
