Tracy, there is always a risk with any surgery for any cat. Not a big one but it is there. It is safer to have Bacca spayed after she is out of heat. I have had 8 FeLV+ girls spayed with no issues. None were in heat. All were in good health when they had the surgery. They went to a low

I am not a vet, but I would be surprised if either Liquid DMG or Transfer Factor would be a problem when giving prednisone or another steroid. They are both supplements and not really in the same category as interferon, LTCI or something like that. Best wishes for you and Wolfie. Lance On Tue,

Crystal, you never really get used t him not being there. I lost 2 of my 19 year olds last February an I still half expect to see them coing to greet me in the morning. But new furbabies came to fill my life and heart. I had 6 and 2 weeks ago, God gave me 2 crazy babies. He always knows when

Hi Tracy, My vocal 1 1/2 year old positive female, Sylvia, sometimes changes her voice when she's not feeling well. It drops into a lower register and gets scratchy, like she has laryngitis. She's spayed. Most of the time she's got a fairly melodic, medium-pitched meow-- that scratchy voice is

Thank you everyone. You all are truly very wonderful and caring people. Nibbler made it to 16 weeks.  He took a turn for the worse a couple days ago.  Fortunately, he was purring and happy and we got to hold him as he went.  I know he is in a better place even though this is the worst broken

Crystal, I'm so sorry about Nibbler. I lost Duncan last summer, Charlotte in April and Chutney a few weeks ago. Chutney's passing was a shock because we didn't know he was positive. He had tested negative just 6 weeks before he died, but then his sister Bridget tested positive, so I know that's

I think you all have valid points. Here are my thoughts. 1. Overdiagnosis of FIP - this is way hard to estimate because the diagnosis is difficult to come by. In fact, the pathophysiology of the disease is poorly understood so it may actually represent a constellation of diseases. In the
