I took Cole to the vet this afternoon and I think it confirmed my worries. He has lost almost 2 lbs since June 24th. The vet did a complete blood count to see what his status is and his anemia is worsening at a very fast rate and if it does not increase his body will give out soon. His

Hi Kim, I just now read about Cole's situation and we had a similar situation here last month, except the kitty had hemobartanella (a blood parasite very common to FeLV+ kitties and causes anemia) in it's blood.  Hemobartanella is very difficult to diagnose because one minute it will show up on

Jennifer, Congratulations on the negative FeLV test results!  The supplement your vet recommended is lysine.  You can find it fairly inexpensive at health food stores and online, if not elsewhere.  Sometimes lysine can have additives that can cause Heinz body anemia in cats, so make sure you

I use Innova Evo from Natura, out of California.  I order through Petfooddirect.com when they have their 22% off deal about once a month.  It's all protein.  My cats love it. :) Wendy  Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world - indeed it is the only

Welcome to the group Jody!  So glad you hear your kitties are healthy!  I feed mine Innova Evo.  I would also suggest pure L-Lysine as a supplement.  It's an immune system booster, comes in a tasteless powder form, and is easy to mix into wet food. :) Wendy  Never doubt that a small group of

I have recently heard that l-lysine is only effective against the herpes virus because it reduces the amount of l-arginine that the herpes virus needs in order to replicate. Supposedly, there is no evidence that l-lysine is a general immune booster. I know that many people give it as a

Kim, I am so sorry to hear how badly Cole is feeling. My FeLV+ Buzz was acting that way about a month ago. My usual vet was on vacation and the one that fills in for him said he had anemia - 8% red blood cell level, and gave him two days to live. Thanks to the people on this list I called the

Thank you for all of your advice and support. I definately have taken some of the information in to account and when we go back to the vet on Tuesday I will mention that I need more information about the kind of anemia he has and ask about the infectious anemia. I took him to the vet again on
