Hey Jane - ]]\ I haven't used it in a year or two, so I'll have to check my dosage. I used instructions from the vet I got it from and used Tally's instructions at http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pointe/9352/interferon.html In fact it was originally Tally who promoted it's use here.

Kim, I have been out of town and am trying to get caught up with posts.  First let me say how great it is you have had 6 1/2 yrs with Cole.  My positive girls are just 9 months old so that gives me hope.   There is a assist feeding group that has some great info.

Dear all, a cautiously hopeful update from Michelle: Thank you all for praying! The internist just called, sounding rather surprised, to say that Patches' bilirubin is down to 2.2 (from 6.1), her PCV is at 20, she is bright, and she has started eating more on her own! They are hoping to send her

Taking my furbabies to the vet in about a half hour.  I'm nervous for the results of Morrison's and Isobel's FeLV test.  Ash is just getting his rabies shot because my vet won't neuter him without his rabies vax (and it's the only vaccine required by law in New Jersey).  I'm also talking to my

Morrison and Isobel are both FeLV NEGATIVE!  I was so happy when I found out!  Those were the longest 10 minutes of my life (the time it takes for the test results).  They both got their FeLV vaccine.  At first they weren't going to give Isobel one because she's pregnant (the vet confirmed) but

Good news about the test results. One suggestion though--contact this no-kill shelter RIGHT NOW! Most no-kills are always full up and you need to be absolutely sure they will take the kittens. Also, please check the shelter yourself to make sure its on the up and up. Ask what happens to

Good idea Chris.  Thanks for the advice.  I know of some other no-kill shelters in the area as well.  One is called Ron's Animal Shelter, which is where I got Morrison from years ago.  All they ask is that you donate a bag of cat or dog food if you're dropping off animals.  I've been there

See if you can find a holistic vet. There may be some supplements you can use. Somewhere I read had cosaquin stregthens bladder muscles.I have no personal knowledge but am a big fan of holistic medicines, especially when the regular vets are out of ideas. There are nice mattress

My Tucson has this annoying little habit of peeing in not so great places--usually, its cause she's mad at somebody or somebody annoyed her when she was heading for the litter box or the moon is high or whatever! But once, the vet found she had clogged anal sacs and he said that might cause her

There are pads that are washable (disposable is too expensive) that are used under people in nursing homes/hospitals. I bought a bunch of these when a most loved dog was having similar problems because of a terminal illness. I am lucky enough to have a washer and dryer available but
