I have not written for so long because I feel that I have given up hope. Sebastian has not been doing very well. He can no longer walk and he relies on me to take him to the litter box and to feed him. He still has a good appetite. He seems so depressed now. I am so heart broken that I cry almost

Yes, The doctors do believe that his problems may be neurological. He is not anemic that I know of. He had blood work done about two months ago and everything looked purrfect! He is happy when I am around and purrs alot. Ho does seem a little depressed though becuase he can't walk around.

I was finally able to get Sebastian in to see an internist and a nuerologist. The vet believes that the weakness in his back legs could be a mass on his spinal cord or lesions all along his spine. They would have to do more tests to be sure. Evenafter the tests there is no real treatment for

Anemia has been ruled out for Sebastian. He recently had blood work done and everything looked great. I vets say it may be something in his spinal cord. I am very worried. Sebastian was put on Depo Medrol for a two year period because of mouth sores. It helped with the sores, but at the time I

I have not written anything for a while. I have been very overwhelmed with Sebastian's problems and I keep trying things that do not seem to work. I recently took Sebastian to Virginia Tech's Veterinary hospital (because of everyone's recommedations). I am so upset that he is getting sicker. I

A began to see a slight weakness in Sebastian's legs at the beginning of May. I took him to the vet for his regular Depo injections and the vet (the first vet) noticed that he had lost 1 pound and his coat was thinning. We then decided not to do the depo and check his blood work. the blood work

Does everyone give injections of Interferon themselves? Sebastian takes Interferon orally, on one week then off one week. What is the difference between Interferon Alpha or Omega? Should he be taking injections? Also his weakness in his hind legs are really bothering me. I suggested to the vet to
