Of those on the list, I've only used inteferon alpha and Dimethylglycine (DMG). Interferon is fairly affordable, while DMG is cheap and available in a number of formats (liquid, powder, treat). I can't vouch for whether or not they work. We have no studies that I know of for DMG use on FeLV+

Hi Kasia, Well, that's the website for this list, so that's where I got a lot my info from, at least as a starting point. Both my positive boys on the Interferon 7 days on, 7 days off. My Vet is holding ImmunoRegulin for me, for possible future use. That's about it, for now. Gribble was

Hi Everyone! I have two questions today regarding FeLV. First, for anyone who has worked in the rescue world, what is your testing protocol? I volunteer w/ several cat/kitten rescues in Los Angeles. I recently found a litter in my garage and they're staying in my guest room until I can find a

Hi Amanda, I've been involve in rescue for more than 30 years. I've always tested, and always will, but I no longer trust the negatives to stay negative. I think all it's really demonstrating is that the cat/kitten does not have an active infection, and is therefore not contagious _at that

Margo, I agree with you. I think every rescue and shelter should test prior adopting a cat out or placing it in a foster home where it will mingle with resident cats. Unfortunately, Los Angeles Animal Services (LAAS) and many other cat rescues feel it's unnecessary. I'm going to try to find

Hi Lance, Of those on the list, I've only used inteferon alpha. ***Did you start using it before your cat has shown any symptoms?  How is Jack doing today? *** So far Jack has been doing really good. It took him only two days to get back to normal, and the fluid in his chest stopped building

Yes, the vet who confirmed Ember's status started her on interferon immediately, which was a bit over seven years ago. DMG requires no prescription, and people give it to healthy animals that have no illnesses. If you're considering it, I would recommend discussing DMG with your vet, just to
