Susan, There is not much that the vet can do about the swollen glands. It just means that she is fighting off something. I would go ahead and start her on the interferon now if possible. The Lysine will help boost her immune system,as well as a product called MIssing Link. Get

Yes, she tested positive with the IFA test. We are primarily a small TNR group and don't always test, but she was so thin and run down, we had her tested. The other adults looked OK. Many of the 14 kittens, positive and negative, had health issues, which we're getting through. We are

Our website is www.adoptapet.org - we have a ways to go with the site, but if you take a look, Emmet, the positive kitten with the swollen glands, is on our home page. Even tho he's been placed, the picture is so cute we thought it might help people realize positive cats need homes too. Janine

Regarding Emmet, My guess would be that's not necessarily so (that he's dying). Could be fighting it off. They can do that. Could be fighting something else off, like a uri. Or on the other hand would be developing lymphoma. WOuld require a vet check. Might start giving him interferon

After i had mono, the lymph nodes in my neck stayed enlarged for a long time and I can still feel one of them, 16 years later. So it might be that they are still enlarged from a prior infection. I think I would get her checked, though. Michelle In a message dated 4/13/05 4:59:27 PM Eastern
