I've got an FIV+ cat (Pasha) on the cocktail and can answer this.
The stomatitis cocktail was developed by the late Dr. Bob Wiggs at his
clinic (Dallas Animal Dental) in Dallas. The actual mix of ingredients
is proprietary so nobody other than
Joel because this product, the cocktail, is going to be patented (I am
assuming) the dental vet will not disclose exactly what is in it but
gives generic information. It is supposed to have vitamins, a low dose
antibiotic, a probiotic, an acid reducer like a prilosec or something
Hi April - I just read your mail. My cat, Chloe, female one year old, pretty
gray/black/caramel tabby, is also positive. I have known since June when she
had a fever. She has stabilized and is doing so well now. Very healthy and
playful. She is a little squirt, i call her. I have been
This is all new to me too. I do have other cats at home, Spicy lives in a
bedroom by herself. She has two windows to look out of, a cat tree and a
sofa. Spicy has had no signs of the illness. So I didn't know she had it. I
adopted her the first weekend in June and took her to

Same here. When I first got an FELV cat, I was paranoid. But that was
in 2001. Many of us don't think it's as contagious as is presented.
I've mixed mine with my others for several years, no problem. All
mine are altered and sit around and eat and sleep.
Some of what I've learned is
I agree. I mixed positives and negatives since 2001 and never had a problem.
Just as long as your negatives are vaccinated, they should be fine. I see no
need to segregate them.

Hi April - My vet didn't know anything about the 5 stages of the disease
Can you believe this. O.K. So, what do you know about the 5 stages? What
does it mean? I think I heard that if your cat can make it through all five
stages, then they have developed an immunity to the disease.
Dot, if your other cats are current on vaccinations and are negative, I see no
reason why you shouldn't mix them. Like I've said before, I've mixed mine in
the past and never have I had a negative become infected.
My 2 cents.

this is what I found off the internet. I didn't hear that about making threw
the 5 phases, because there is a 6 when the disease takes over. I know she's
lonely sometimes because she loved being part of the family. She was accepted
by all the other cats. I'm torn between trying to find her
Hi - I have been reading a lot of people saying that they have been mixing the
cats. But I called my vet and he again said that it is risky. There is still
a risk and chance the others could get it. And they may not pull out of it
like my cat Chloe FELV) did during the first fever. I
Hi April - wow. Good information. O.K. So maybe what I heard is incorrect.
So, you are thinking of getting your cat another one to play with? But you
also have other cats without the virus? I have a small house and keeping the 3
of them separated is downright crazy! It is so hectic. My
Hi - I don't remember if I responded to you or not! I've had so many people to
talk with. it's wonderful. I think i was telling someone else that one of my
other cats has the AIDS (FIV) so I am a little hesitant to mix the two cats
together, the FELV one with the FIV. Because I think he is
It's certainly personal choice, I certainly understand. Like I say, I've
mixed for several years and never had problems. I mix w FIV cats too. FIV cats
seem to have some problems with uri and gingivitis, never had one get Felv. I
think vets don't have much experience w FIV or Felv cats except
It was the same with my Annie. When her owner who was in hospice learned that
they had found her a good home, she passed the next day. She knew her baby was
safe so she could go. If I di not have a safe haven for my babies to go to, I
guess I wuld just have to NOT die. If I did not know thy
I have mixed neg/pos for years now as long as neg is vaccinated AND
NOT a youngster. The kittens/young cats are much more susceptible and
I always keep them separate until they are older and are several
months past both initial vaccination and boosters.

Again, a large number of the people posting on this site MIX positives
and negatives with the following caveat:
1. Negatives MUST be fully vaccinated incl: FIV and FeLV
2. After initial vaccination in negative adults there should be a
waiting period before mixing. I think it is 1 month or so
As it appears you really don't want to keep this cat perhaps you can
let us know where you live so we can try and help?
