is able to fight it off or is this just a false hope. 4. If the other test is positive, would anyone suggest using the LTCI treatment? I have not found good scientific info on it's effectiveness although there appear to be no major side effects. Thanks. Don and Oliver

it was 105 but tonight it is normal. What could be made from this? He did get a antibiotic shot. I assumed that the fever was being caused by the virus, but I guess it could have been due to something else. Thanks again.

Well his IFA was negative. I need to talk to the vet but I guess we can (perhaps) discount him being actively viremic. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks. Don and Oliver On Sat, Sep 8, 2012 at 8:51 PM, Don mosquito.d...@gmail.com wrote: Hello. Our boy Oliver, has been doing well since his

was likely just another virus. We pretty much expected this once the IFC tests were both negative but it was nice to have confirmation. Thanks for the all the replies with advice.

Thanks for the responses. Just a note, we already use a metal water bowl, although when he was sick a few weeks back we added a ceramic bowl in our bedroom. We have now eliminated that one and will see if that helps. Don and Oliver On Tue, Oct 9, 2012 at 8:35 PM, Don mosquito.d...@gmail.com
