Sherry, I am so sorry you lost Bugaboo. Big black cats are very special to me, as they always seem so sweet and lovable. I lost my black cat, Voodoo, three years ago when he was only 3 years old. I still miss him so much. Lorrie On 06-29, Sherry DeHaan wrote: My heart is heavy yet once

Forgive me, but I'm not sure of Wolfie's history. With respect to hypercalcemia there are multiple causes.If you want to treat it you need to identify the underlying cause. This is often challenging and the treatment (at least the immediate way to decrease the Ca levels) is with diet, fluids

No idea why he has hind leg weakness. I'll researched all the causes and none seem to apply other than the leukemia. He has had routine blood work every 6 months of his life and we have monitored him very closely as we do all our positive cats. No major problems other than some weight loss

Amy, based on what you have written I wouldn't worry about the high Ca right now. What was his phos level? There is an issue when both Ca and Phos are high but again that wouldn't affect his hind legs. It could be the anemia. In the end we do what we can with the resources we have. He's

[Felvtalk] FELV Shelter Insurance HELP!

I need Liability insurance. I tried Kennel Pack and they sent me an apology letter. They won't insure me because I adopt out healthy cats and keep FELV positive cats in the same building. It's not like I keep them together. They each have their own cageless room. I also had to promise never to

You might want to try some of the places that do keep AND adopt out FELV + and neg cats. Sounds a bit crazy to me that they wouldn't give you insurance. -Original Message- From: Marnie Miszewski marni...@embarqmail.com Sent: Jun 30, 2010 1:57 PM To: felvtalk@felineleukemia.org

Marnie, It sounds like you are doing the same thing I am.I also have a building, and I also keep FelV cats in a separate room, but I had no problem getting liability insurance. My cats don't attack people. I only worried about someone falling on the sidewalk out front, or having some other

Amy, I have to agree with Sharyl. Taking everything into consideration I probably would not proceed with evaluating the levels. In human medicine we don't treat unless the value is at least 1.0 greater than the upper limit of norma. My understanding in fact is that steroids can help lower

Sharyl, Are you saying that phos level would cause a problem? Neither of my vets seemed concerned with that level as it was just a tad below normal. Amy --- On Wed, 6/30/10, Sharyl cline...@yahoo.com wrote: From: Sharyl cline...@yahoo.com Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] rear leg weakness To:
