[Felvtalk] Interferon

2010-06-27 Thread Stacy Zacher
Hi:

I received a bottle of interferon from my vet. He told me it was a 90 day 
supply but it says discard after 30 days on the bottle. I know many posts have 
said that you draw it up into syringes and then freeze and I know it doesn't 
last long.  I'm guessing I need to do that but my vet told me to call the 
compounding pharmacy that diluted it and sent it and just make sure. 

The bottle says Interferon Alpha 2B 60 IU/ML 45 ML give .5 ML by mouth once 
daily.  I thought I had read most people are giving 1 ML daily or 7 on 7 off? 
This came from US Compounding with an address in Conway AZ.  I didn't get much 
instruction with the bottle! 

So I am wondering about freezing and then do you know of any economic sites 
where I can buy the 1 ML syringes in a box off 100 and the syringe caps? I am 
also looking for empty small gelcaps. 

Thanks!

Re: [Felvtalk] rear leg weakness- Revolution used?

2010-06-27 Thread Sharyl
I've had 2 FeLV+ kitties lose the use of their hind legs.  Neither ever got 
Revolution.  I've had CRF kitties with weakness in their hind legs. Potassium 
gluconate corrected the problem.  Neither of them ever received Revolution.  
That said cats respond differently to things like Revolution so no guarantee 
that didn't cause a problem with Carmen's cat.

Re: [Felvtalk] rear leg weakness- Revolution used? and update

2010-06-27 Thread Amy
I have not used Revolution on Wolfie.  

Wolfie is still acting himself, is eating fine but he is definitely getting 
weaker in the back legs.  It's really hard to see because I don't think things 
are going to get better.  He has food and litter on the main floor but is still 
choosing to do stairs (making me a nervous wreck).  He's starting to have a 
tough time with the kitchen floor (linoleum) so I'm putting carpets down to 
help.  Wish I could do something more for him but I always feel that way when 
my leuk positives start going downhill.  I hate this disease.  

Looking for opinions here.  Wolfie's calcium was 11.6 when the blood work was 
done.  Normal is 8.2-11.5.  The vet at Cornell wants me to draw another sample 
to check his active or ionized calcium to see if his Calcium is actually high.  
Would you put your cat through this if your gut is that he doesn't have long?  
I asked what we would do if it's high.  She said we'd look at all causes and 
rule them out and if none of those applied, we'd alter his diet to try bringing 
it down.  He's anemic and having trouble with his legs.  Would you pursue 
something like this or let him be in peace?

According to Island Pharmacy - they use to compound a lot of interferon, but 
no longer do it - it was not recommended to freeze the final dilution of 
interferon, just keep it in the fridge, they always said it was good for 90 
days that way.  The dosage for cats is 30 IU a day.  The compound you have 
is made to have 1 ml equal 60 IU, so to get the correct daily dosage of 30 
IU, you would use only .5 ml.  Whether you use a protocol with a daily 
dosage, or the 7 on 7 off protocol is a choice you have to make.


I don't know how your interferon is packaged, but if you do not need a 
needle to withdraw it and can use just an oral syringe, I would Google for a 
1 ml oral syringe with cap.  Most of the syringes listed as oral syringes 
will not accept a needle, so they are not dual purpose.

Amy, it is a tough call.  Here is what Broadwater Vet says about high Ca.
http://www.broadwayvh.com/site/view/83223_LaboratoryAssessmentDescriptions.pml;jsessionid=ykajf9p4y6uh
The calcium level high. This is always concerning. A persistently high calcium 
level, or hypercalcemia, can be toxic to kidney cells and it leads to poor 
muscle function, especially within the intestines, heart and limbs. It can also 
lead to hypertension, urinary stones and tissue mineralization. A high calcium 
level can be due to kidney disease, certain cancers, over-supplementation, 
Vitamin D toxicity, a hormonal disease called hyperparathyroidism or it may be 
idiopathic, meaning it is occurring for unexplained reasons.

The iCa test has to be sent off to a university for the results.  My CRF kitty, 
Albert, had high iCa and I got it down by change the fluids used for his sub q 
fluids.

no interferon.  Too bad they aren't available any longer.

I don't know how your interferon is packaged, but if you do not  
need  a needle to withdraw it and can use just an oral syringe, I  
would  Google for a 1 ml oral syringe with cap.  Most of the  
syringes  listed as oral syringes will not accept a needle, so  
they are not  dual purpose.

Hi:

I received a bottle of interferon from my vet. He told me it was  
a  90 day supply but it says discard after 30 days on the bottle.  
I  know many posts have said that you draw it up into syringes  
and  then freeze and I know it doesn't last long.  I'm guessing I  
need  to do that but my vet told me to call the compounding  
pharmacy that  diluted it and sent it and just make sure.


The bottle says Interferon Alpha 2B 60 IU/ML 45 ML give .5 ML by   
mouth once daily.  I thought I had read most people are giving 1  
ML  daily or 7 on 7 off? This came from US Compounding with an  
address  in Conway AZ. I didn't get much instruction with the  
bottle!


So I am wondering about freezing and then do you know of any   
economic sites where I can buy the 1 ML syringes in a box off  
100  and the syringe caps? I am also looking for empty small  
gelcaps.


Thanks!
Stacy and Spanky

Re: [Felvtalk] FeLV

2010-06-27 Thread dlgegg
If all of you other cats are vaccinated for felv, you should be able to mix her 
in with them.  I have 2 felv positive cats and 6 negative cats.  my vet says if 
the other aare up to date on vaccinations is okay.  just keep everyone stress 
free or as close as possible, give them good food and lots of love.  my 2 
positives have had a bit of trouble adjusting to other cats, but have worked 
out their own system and i rarely have more than hisses and screaming upon 
unexpected encounters, never any real fights with biting, just slapping 
bouts.  you have a few more than i do (8), but as long as you are able to keep 
up with the food bill.  that is my only concern, but then i will just eat less 
myself.  i need to do that anyway, will make my doctor happy.

Of course, you could always make your own and have a lifetime supply for 
under $100.


I would disagree with one statement made on Tally's site, she says you can 
mix the interferon with food.  I had always heard that the interferon is 
absorbed through the mucous membranes and once it got to the stomach it was 
useless.  Island said not to freeze the final dilution and it appears Tally 
did that with no problem.  It may be that Island Pharmacy just didn't want 
you to be able to keep it more than 90 days.  If you were using the 7 on, 7 
off protocol, a 90 day supply would last 180 days if you froze the extra.


I thought the info in the lasaer treatments was very interesting.

Thanks, Gary!  I looked at the Franck web site, not a great web site I 
might add, very disappointing.  No link for veterinary products, none  for 
interferon that I could find.  I went to IslandPharmacy.com, and  no 
interferon.  Too bad they aren't available any longer.


For those interested, Tally was on this group a few years ago and  still

Yeah, it's my understanding that it needs to get to the tissue in the  
back of the throat for absorption there...


Will have to look at the laser treatments, haven't read that.
