Re: [Felvtalk] Another Murphy relapse-now URI

Hi Alice, You might ask your vet about azithromycin. I use it for URI/bartonella, often hard to tell the difference without testing. My vets would use azithromycin in either case anyway, so I skip the testing and do the az. You can get fish-flavored, oil-based, which lasts 90 days versus 10

Hi Gary, Do you have any information on concentration of acemannan and dosing for the discontinued product? I'm investigating several sources for powdered acemannan, which is taken orally. It might offer an alternative to the injectable form, although I suspect doses are smaller and might

Hi Alice, What I like about LTCI is it enhances the immune system as opposed to alot of medicines which overpower the disease, with possible side effects. I don't see any practical way to overdose LTCI. I give monthly LTCI shots to my healthy FeLV/FIV positives. I'd probably go to once a

I couldn't agree more with you, Sharyl. Lots of vets think PTS first with FeLV and FIV. I often think they just don't know any better. The first option my vet offered with my first FeLV+, a beautiful blue-eyed Ragdoll, was PTS, and my vet is very progressive. I also said no way, Selena

Hello Mattia, I'm checking with my source to see if I can arrange to have it shipped directly to you. This would probably be the fastest approach. If that won't work, I do have an extra bottle I could send to you. If you could forward your address, I'll get this going as soon as possible.

Thank you for this information, could you provide a reference, so I could review the original work? I'd also like to strongly caution that even though something looks really good in a research article, it doesn't mean it is effective or even safe, especially when it involves animal testing for
