Re: [Felvtalk] where to purchase LTCI

Definitely try to get some LTCI. We put dexter on it for the last few weeks of his life and I feel that if we had started sooner, he might have lived a bit longer. LTCI is only available from the manufacturer: www.tcyte.com - if your vet will order it, they will overnight the medication to

Unfortunately, acemannan is currently off the market. Carrington labs, the manufacturer, went out of business last year after struggling through bankruptcy for nearly a decade. So, unless you can find a vet with a stockpile, it's all gone. It's a great drug, with applications for humans as

Are you able to vaccinate your other kitty and keep the new girl separated for a month or so? If so, I can't think of any reason why you shouldn't keep her. Just because she's potentially FeLV positive doesn't mean she isn't a wonderful kitty who deserves a chance at happiness just as much as

My Dexter has been on interferon since October and the only effect I've ever noticed is that on the weeks he is on it, he is ever so slightly less energetic. I've never seen him act nauseated because of it. In Cali's situation, there are so many things that could be impacting her breathing and

I have to agree - we give all of our kitties a supplement called kittievite - it's a malt paste with a good daily multivitamin included... They never want to just eat the stuff, so we smear a little on their haunches, and they go about cleaning themselves and getting their vitamins. Works like
