[Felvtalk] FelV kittens

2008-12-28 Thread Lorrie
I wrote two weeks or so ago about a very sick FelV kitten who was anemic and had lost control of her back legs, and her bladder. We took her to the vet and he felt she was in the last stages of FelV, with little or no hope for recovery. She was 9 months old and only weighed 3 and a half pounds.

Honestly I wouldn't take the chance until I called the company and asked them specifically if there was any onion in any form in it, that is my own personal opinion .. I know a lot of things that don't say onion on the label have it in the food as flavoring. The one that is really tricky
