You know--A  D Cream (not ointment) works really great too--comes in a
tube-usually in baby dept at drug store.  But I'd let it air out a bit after
cleaning w. Peroxide.

Oh, I forgot! A holistic vet recommends Calendula Gel. It heals things very

It's amazing.

I generally clean the cut with Hydrogen Peroxide, poured directly on  
the cut.  Then either antibiotic ointment or an herbal, Golden Seal  
powder or liquid.

 I've never done that before to any pet.  It bled a little but its  
 just the skin that was cut.  We put some Neosporin on it and a  
 little gauze bandage.  We didn't have any gauze to wrap around the  
 bandage to keep it on so I cut  a clean Handiwipe in strips and tied  
 it on.  I'm just wondering if that's the right thing to do.  Do you  
 think I need to take her to the vet right away or can we just watch  
 it for a few days?  I don't want to stress her by taking her to the  
 vet if I don't have to.   I have 2 cats of my own and have had quite  
 a few vet bills lately too.  I don't need any more but I want to do  
 the right thing too.  How do you treat cuts in a FeLV cat? She's  
 almost 2 years old.
 I'm becoming quite a worrier.  We have already lost 2 of the kittens  
 we originally had so I'm on this list to learn as much as I can.
 Originally my vet told us they were FIV and not FeLV but I found out

 and I have someone I can trust now. My heart and prayers go out to  
 all of you who have lost  little ones lately.   I cry ever time I

[Felvtalk] The Heavens Cried for Max Today

2010-03-29 Thread Sharyl
I just mentioned my dear sweet Maxwell in a post.  I had adopted him and his 
sister last yr from a rescue as FeLV+ kittens.  I lost Molly Brown to wet FIP 
earlier this yr.  Today I lost Max to wet FIP.  I'm guessing their little 
immune suppressed bodies were more susceptible.  

It was raining as I drove Max to the vet this morning to have him PTS.  He 
passed on the way.  He is now at the crematory and his ashes will join Molly's 
and all my Angels.  

He was a real lover.  Was happiest cuddled on my shoulder.  He'd follow me 
around the house and always beat me to the kitchen where he begged for his 
favorite Temptation treats.  

Please add Max to the CLS.  
Sadly

If you are using Peroxide I recommend that you dilute it 50/50 with water. That 
is what we recommend to our clients at the Animal Hospital I work at. Peroxide 
can be damaging to tissue. Good luck!

Sharyl - I lost Speckles to dry FIP today. She'd been losing weight 
gradually and suddenly had wobbly rear legs. Last night she had two seizures 
and at the vet's today the decision was made to euthanize. She was eating and 
drinking today and even purring at the vet. Now I know she has a buddy to play 
with on the other side.

Last night I had the most horrible dream - I suppose because I knew what would 
happen today. In my dream I reached out to touch a big purple glass ball - then 
it turned around and it was a grinning human skull on a dog's body. I just knew 
it was there to take all my cats so I threw a big candle at it. It said in a 
mocking voice, You wouldn't hurt a dog, would you? Not a dog. Then I picked 
up a big stick and tried to hit it. It killed all my cats with the exception of 
a black and white one  I was very relieved that I'd managed to save one. Now 
that's what I call a stress dream.
I don't even know if I'm going to go to work tomorrow. I just want to stay home 
and be quiet. Today it was Speckles. Not even 2 weeks ago it was Bridget, and 5

sister last yr from a rescue as FeLV+ kittens.  I lost Molly Brown to wet FIP 
earlier this yr.  Today I lost Max to wet FIP.  I'm guessing their little 
immune suppressed bodies were more susceptible.  

It was raining as I drove Max to the vet this morning to have him PTS.  He 
passed on the way.  He is now at the crematory and his ashes will join Molly's 
and all my Angels.  

He was a real lover.  Was happiest cuddled on my shoulder.  He'd follow me 
around the house and always beat me to the kitchen where he begged for his 
favorite Temptation treats.  

Please add Max to the CLS.  
Sadly
Sharyl

Re: [Felvtalk] FeLV Positive Young Mom Cat Babies

2010-03-29 Thread create_me_new
I don't know anything about this, so forgive me if this is an ignorant 
question, but isn't Aloe Vera toxic to cats? I know our rescue adopted out a 
cat that got very ill from munching on her new owner's Aloe Vera Plant.

Gary,

You ask a loaded question.  Technically oral 'acemannan' is not yet
available.  What I was referring to was the oral form of sugars that
are an extract from the aloe vera plant.  The best product would be an
organic all natural aloe vera juice preparation.  There are a few good
ones out there.

With respect to specific papers supporting it's efficacy.  Well, this
is convoluted.  Largely because felv is so unpredictable and it's hard
to say whether any of these treatments are really doing anything
anyway.  Having said that, there are many papers written about the
value of aloe vera poly- and mono-saccharides in viral infections and
immune support.  In reference to felv specifically most studies have
been done around the IP injection.  There is a paper comparing the use
of IP injection and oral preparation in fiv cats - comparable results
in each group.  I don't have access to pub meb from this computer, but
can get it from work and send you the abstract.  To me the big issue
is whether or not things are absorbed through the oral preparation -
the fiv paper supports that it does and most of what I know about
intestinal absorption supports easy passive and active diffusion of
the sugars.  Additionally any IP injection would also require
absorption into the vascular system.

To the best of my knowledge no specific research has yet been done or
at least published to answer your exact question.  Although it always
nice to have evidence to support actions, sometimes the data just
isn't there.  I still believe in the value of acemannan and believe it
can be used orally if only as a support measure in assisting the
immune system.

I have recently, however, spoken with a number of holistic vets who
have better success with a oral supplement known as Moducare - it is a
plant sterol derivative known to modulate the immune system.  Some of
them have also expressed support of the Standard Process feline immune
support supplement.   Who knows.

I wish there was a straight forward easy answer to this disease.  I
really do, but I haven't found it yet.  I will keep searching and I
hope that if you find anything of value that you share it with me.
Thanks and I will send you the paper when I can.

 I would be very interested in the source of the oral product and the
 protocol for FeLV cats.  Also, any articles or studies relating to the use
 of oral Acemannan.

 Thanks,

 Minnie,

 3. Acemannan - a supplement known to help fight off the virus.  I would
 get
 them on an oral dose of this daily.

Re: [Felvtalk] Vaccine

2010-03-29 Thread create_me_new
Many vets don't recommend them for indoor cats because of the problem with 
vaccine-site sarcomas. I think you should always get them at least their 1st 
vaccine  booster.

A friend who lives in the Wash. DC area just told me her
vet no longer recommends vaccines for FelV. In her case,
she had a cat she adopted who was FelV pos. and he died
at 18 months of age.  She had her other two cats vaccinated
last year when she found out he was pos. and when she went
to get their annual FelV boosters she was told they don't
recommend them. I'm not sure if this means just the boosters 
or any FelV shots.

Have any of you heard anything about this?

I am sorry Laura and Sharyl.
It never gets easier

Laura, be gentle with yourself. This is a lot of loss in a short time. 
If your gut tells you to stay home then I think you should.
Please don't be waiting for more bad news or you will surely get it.
Can you perhaps try saying you deserve GOOD NEWS now 

With love,

Last night I had the most horrible dream - I suppose because I knew what
would happen today. In my dream I reached out to touch a big purple glass
ball - then it turned around and it was a grinning human skull on a dog's
body. I just knew it was there to take all my cats so I threw a big candle
at it. It said in a mocking voice, You wouldn't hurt a dog, would you? Not
a dog. Then I picked up a big stick and tried to hit it. It killed all my
cats with the exception of a black and white one  I was very relieved that
I'd managed to save one. Now that's what I call a stress dream.
I don't even know if I'm going to go to work tomorrow. I just want to stay
home and be quiet. Today it was Speckles. Not even 2 weeks ago it was
Bridget, and 5 days before Bridget it was Baby Girl. A few weeks before that
it was Frosty Paws. I'm just waiting for the next bit of bad news.
