I am so frustrated. I can only give the metacan 3x's a week, and the stuff makes me jittery anyway. His fever goes up and down. I have him laying next to a cold pack right now, and i have sponged him off. His temp is 105.3...again. We have been out of that range for a few days. He won't

Just got back from the vet. She put him on Delta Albaplex. It has several antibiotics and prednisolone. We are to use it for 5 days. Took blood. She said it looked thin. His gums are OK, but it looks like he is amemic. I called Revival. The IR is only 5ml. How much do you use at a time?

Kelly, You are right about the stress. We had an owner surrender at our shelter in Fl. He was 5 yrs old, and had never known anyone else. He just sat on top of a cabinet and literally tried to starve. We took him home, and he is OK except for severe stomatitis. Clearly, it can affect the

Just got my order of IR, and my vet just confirmed the dose. On their package it says to give once a week for 2 weeks, and then once a month for 20 months or until the IFA or ELISA comes back negative??? That is quite a claim. Anyway the tech said i could do IM as well as subQ. Any of you IR
