Re: [Felvtalk] raw food diet

Hi all, I'm new to the forum and here to help my father with his felv positive kitten. She is on EVO, but was wondering if a raw food diet would be better for her immunity? Any experience with an optimal diet or feedback would be great. Thanks, Saehwa Sent from my iPhone

I just wanted everyone to know that just b/c your kitty tests positive on the ELISA, even twice, at month or more long intervals, it doesn't mean your kitty is FeLV positive. I am seeing adoption ads for people who give the ELISA test once, and think the kitten has to be adopted out and can't

How did you get the rescue to take them? Are they calicos or an atypical type? I called 16 places all turned me down. I'm not the one who abandoned these kittens my dad found, but I get treated just the same as an owner relinquishing their cats! Sent from my iPhone On Oct 23, 2008, at

The ELISA test takes a blood sample from the lower leg, and is inexpensive. It's not that accurate, as there are false positives and sometimes false negatives. We had 2 three month old kittens who became negative within 1 month, and one that became negative 3 months later. You can retest

Our vet told us to hold off on both shots and spay surgery until the final diagnosis. It stresses their systems and makes them weak, thereby making it harder for them to fight off the disease... Sent from my iPhone On Oct 29, 2008, at 2:29 PM, MacKenzie, Kerry N. [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

About a year ago, stray calico kitty that we fostered, and found a great home for had such a bloated belly when we saw her, we thought she was pregnant! I thought she was 99.999% pregnant, that is how large her stomach was. We took her to a local vet, and they offered to do an ultrasound and
