Hi, My Bandy has been spiking a temp now since last June...all the way up to 106..at first we were giving him dex injections weekly, but now I give him 1/2 of a .75mg dex pill and the temp will go down in a matter of 3 to 6 hrs..The dex injections were too strong and could cause diabetes so we

Jen, Don't give up hope! This virus is as unpredictable as it is heartbreaking, and your kitty could turn around in no time at all. It's ok to prepare for the worst, but don't expect it. I will definitely keep Allie in my prayers. Just love her as much as you can, spoil her rotten, and also

I am sorry Allie is having such a hard time. My cat Smokey was having these fevers every 2 to 3 days. I changed vets and the new vet is having me give Smokey injections of equistim twice a week. I know so far for Smokey he hasn't had anymore fevers since. I do give them to him subq. I hope

Please don't give up hope on Allie. Smokey's fevers got as high as 107. Ask your vet about the equistim. So far it really has helped Smokey to not get anymore fevers. I was having to take him to the vet every 2 to 3 days for a fever. Now I just give him the equistim injections at home.

Jen, Equistim is the same thing as ImmunoRegulin; Equistim is the generic. If your vet can't get it, you can order it online and have it shipped fast for about $50 including shipping (it might be less; I can't remember). I ordered Cricket's through Revival Animal Health. :) Wendy --- cindy

What is the difference between ImmunoRegulin and Interferon- I'm assuming they are not the same? I am awaiting a consultation with a vet who does Interferon (I've learned a lot about Interferon from all of you- thanks!), but ImmunoRegulin is new to me...wendy [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: Jen,Equistim

Allie was back at the vet today with 105 fever- came down to 102.5 with Metacam (kitty NSAID) and sq fluids. I did get the vet to show me how to give the sq fluids, so I can administer them now if she stops eating and drinking and looks dehydrated, or if her temp goes up (I've been monitoring her

Please try Immuno-Regulin (see articles on www.felineleukemia.org). Smokey on this list went through the same thing and completely stopped getting fevers once he started getting Immuno-regulin shots. I believe he gets them sub-q at home now. Michelle In a message dated 5/11/2006 6:28:32

Jennifer, I'm sorry you and Allie are having such a hard time. I know there have been several cats that seemed to benefit from IR, it may be worth a try at this point. Someone remind me, did Kerry R use this for her kitty with the spiking temps? When I first heard about IR, I had heard that it
