Hello all,
 
I have a three year old cat, Mr. Darcy that is Felv+ and is in the last stages 
of his disease as best as the vet and I can tell.  He was symptom free (we 
didn't know that he was Felv+until then) until 6 months ago when he snuck 
outside and contracted an URI. He was tested for Felv+ and it was positive. 
After we got rid of the URI he still was symptomatic and anemic, so we knew he 
was definetly in one of the later stages of his leukemia.  
 
We've had him on Interferon, which seems to help him slightly and he's now on 
it everyday. We also have been giving him Science Diet A/D to help give him 
calories and bring some weight back on him, he's only at 7 lbs 5 oz, which is 
not good.
 
He's stopped eating the A/D so we are starting to assist feed him at night.  
Anything we can do to help him would be great.  Is there a website with 
information on this LTCI and where can you get it. Our vet isn't up on 
everything leukemia/Felv, so she doesn't know much. 
 
Thanks so much!

Jennifer, have you consulted a vet who knows more about FeLV?  That
could be crucial in Mr. Darcy's treatment.  You can just call vets in
your local area and ask if they are knowledgeable about FeLV, and if so
make an appointment with one of them and get him checked out.  If
nothing else, you'd be more sure about where Mr. Darcy stands.  Good
luck to you and eat something! vibes to Mr. Darcy.  I love his name!

Re: [Felvtalk] LTCI by Imulan

2009-01-12 Thread jbero
Jenny,

I am sorry to hear about your situation.  I had a very ill felv cat that 
weighted less than 4 pounds when I got her and was severely anemic.  An 
alternative vet that I saw suggested something for the anemia - anem-o-aid I 
belive,  I will look when I get home.  
 
Initially, she received a blood transfusion and was on steroids/antibiotics for 
a time and I force fed her for two weeks.  Eventually, she improved and gained 
2 lbs.  Unfortunately, she became severely anemic again and stoutly refused to 
eat.  She quickly went downhill and I had to let her go at that point.  Anyway, 
it is helpful to know if she is having a hemolytic anemia as this can sometimes 
be stopped with steroids and specific antibiotics.  You can generally diagnose 
this on smear of blood under the microscope.

The holistic vet also prescribed Wei Qi booster to boost the immune system.  I 
have also heard of something called Acemannan (Carrisyn) and am currently 
working on finding more information about it.  I will keep you informed of 
whatever I can.  Good luck and God bless.

Jennifer,
I can't help with the Interferon but can with the assist feeding.  There is a 
Yahoo Assist Feeding that has some great files on assist feeding.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/Feline-Assisted-Feeding/

Just about any canned food can be used.  I blenderize the food with a little 
liquid and syringe feed the mixture.  I add the supplements to the mixture to 
avoid the hassles of pilling.   

For short term assist feeding meat baby food with no onions or garlic is easy 
to assist feed.  Many kitties will lick it off a coated baby spoon or it is 
easy to syringe feed.  

Kitten canned food is higher in calories than the A/D.  You want to get the 
biggest bang per oz with whatever food you feed.
