Re: [Felvtalk] Need feline interferon omega very quickly

2013-12-24 Thread KG BarnCats
Look into polyprenyl immunostimulant (PI) from Sass  Sass.  They have had
good results with dry FIP. Much cheaper and faster to get than interferon
omega.I don't think you use steroids with it, though.

 Hi,

 My name is Michelle and I used to be a regular on this list for several
years when I had 6 FeLV+ cats, none of whom, unfortunately, are still with
me. At the time, several of us were ordering feline interferon omega and
would send it to each other when needed in an emergency. I have an FIV+ cat
now who appears to have non-effusive FIP (not definite but many signs
pointing there). The only hope of helping that is feline interferon omega
given in combination with steroids, and given quickly. I will not be able
to get it quickly. Does anyone have it who might be willing to sell me a
few doses to get him started while I try to get it? Or to do an exchange
like we used to do, sending me a few doses while I order and then I send it
back?

[Felvtalk] Prayers needed for Bear

2013-12-24 Thread lernermichelle

Turns out it does not look like FIP, looks like hemolytic anemia, where he is 
killing off his own red blood cells, and the vet simply did not keep him on a 
high enough dose of immune-suppressants so he crashed again. Now he is really 
bad. I don't know what his chances are at this point, but I do not think they 
are good, though the vets say he can turn around. He just got a transfusion and 
they are starting him on cyclosporine, a stronger immune suppressant. And 
doxycycline.

Please send him prayers. He is FIV+, not FeLV+, though he has had as many 
issues as my FeLV cats did. I got back on this list looking for feline 
interferon, which I don't need, but one thing I know this list is good for is 
prayers. Please pray it's a good Christmas for Bear and he responds well to the 
transfusion and the cyclosporine. 

thank you,
Michelle

So sorry. I lost one to AIHA.  It is apparently quite serious even without 
the vet messing up. Will send white light.

You are doing everything possible. I am visualizing a healthy little Bear for 
Christmas and for the year. Much love to you. I know how you feel. My sweet 
Bunny girl passed on my birthday of this year. Somehow it's more difficult if 
it's on a special day or time of year. But she had FeLv. She turned negative 
for a whole year, then suddenly turned positive. On the other paw, all my FIV+ 
cats seem to live normal, long lives so there's hope for Bear if he can get 
through this crisis. A transfusion is very good. It will give his body a chance 
to turn things around without too much stress on his organs.
