Hi, dlgegg, The FeLV viral-load test was USD $98, but friends have quoted a charge of USD $109, so I guess it goes up and down a little with the exchange rate for the Euro. My vet paid for the overseas shipping (via USPS) and passed that cost along to me, as I expected. The shipping

You might also want to consider the methimazole gel that can be rubbed onto the inside of the tip of the ear. We’ve had great luck with that. It bypasses all the GI upset that oral methimazole can cause. - Lorraine On April 18, 2019 at 3:12 PM "dlg...@windstream.net" wrote: Hello

Got in now. Yes, it’s true that most of our conversations relate to FeLV cats, but Dlgegg has a lot of cats (like many of us on this chatline) and we also sometimes just see if others in the group may have experience with other conditions. Good information you have provided regarding

As this group is FeLVtalk, I assumed that cats discussed here are FeLV-positive unless the writer says otherwise. Yes, I would indeed hesitate to put a FeLV cat through I-131 therapy. We’ve seen many of our rescues go temporarily hypothyroid (ie, underactive thyroid) for 2 or more months

Did I miss something in the original post about FeLV? I don’t remember that being mentioned. Anyhow, I would reiterate my suggestion to look into CBD Oil if that is also a concern, given the lack of any side-effects reported with its use. CBD Oil could be used along with the Felimazole, as it

Hello, We have taken numerous cats to Radiocat for iodine-131 treatment -- at least 10 -- in the past 15-20 years. In spite of our mostly good experiences with I-131, I would think hard before putting a FeLV cat through it. If the Felimazole is working, I would be inclined to continue with it.
