You are using feline interferon omega, yes? Not human interferon? The human version can be given orally for stomatitis but if injected it will eventually cause an allergic reaction. - Lorraine > On September 19, 2019 at 2:02 AM Wendy wrote: > > > Hello, Our FELV positive neutered male

I very seldom post here, but your baby is very anemic.  HCT 14% and if it continues to drop will need a transfusion.  Many here at one time suggested Winstrol for anemia.   https://www.rxlist.com/winstrol-side-effects-drug-center.htm    I am sure others will chime in here, but this was said to

As others have mentioned in reply to your post, I have used a combination of Winstrol (Stanozolol), Doxycycline and Prednisone. The blood work seems to show that there is an affect on both the red cell lines and platelets. That suggests that this is a bone marrow depression, and in turn that
