Are you suer he doesn't mean cancer and not FeLV? This is when he told me her lymphocytes have dramatically increased just since the last workup a couple weeks ago. He is convinced she has circulating leukemia/lymphoma. -- Belinda happiness is being owned by cats ...

Janet, It sounds like you have been through alot. It also sounds to me like your little one has lymphoma although the specifics of the bloodwork would be more telling. Did your vet happen to do a feline leukemia virus test? This virus can cause lymphomas and leukemias but lymphomas and

Hi all, Jenny, Thanks for the info on the vitamins. Can I get the vitamin C and add it to her food as well? This vet only offered me two suggestions. The meds I mentioned and chemo. No way could I afford chemo treatments unfortunately. If I could give Kia something natural while not being

Janet, Probably the best approach to the vitamins is to do cod liver oil - nordic natural pet cod liver oil. It contains the fish oil, vitamin A and Vitamin D. You can order this online or get it from pretty much any holistic vet. I believe the dosage is one quarter teaspoon daily, but check
