[Felvtalk] FeLV friendly vets in Charleston

2011-12-06 Thread Melinda Kerr
Hello all,

Our time in Japan will finally be ending next summer.  I have been so happy 
with my Japanese vet and credit him with the amazing health of my Fuji, who was 
diagnosed with Mediastinal Lymphoma 17 months ago.  She was given 2-3 months to 
live and has exceeded that by over a year due to Dr. Morisaki's incredible 
care.  He does not follow traditional protocols to the letter, but has my full 
confidence and respect.

Fast forward: Yesterday, he diagnosed my little VooDoo with cancer as well.  
His diagnosis was based on a needle draw of fluid in the chest cavity.  He 
showed me the cancer cells in a microscope photo.I asked several times, 
same as Fuji and the response was yes.  It seems that VooDoo has the same type 
of cancer and is receiving the same treatment.

Fuji just started a maintenance program last month, after the original protocol 
was altered to take into consideration her consistently low white blood cell 
count.  I am hoping that VooDoo can keep his WBC up and allow for a shorter 
treatment cycle.  That way, by the time we move, he may be able to move to 
maintenance as well.  I will be looking for a doctor that will respect the 
treatment that has already occurred and continue on the same path.

Thanks for any input you may have.

Melinda, Fuji and VooDoo

Where will you be moving to, Melinda?
It might be a good idea to start some research on vets in that are, their
philosophy, knowledge and willingness to continue what your Dr. Morisaki has
started.

Melinds, maybe your vet in Japan might know of some vets where you are moving.  
Worth a try.  At least find someone who will work with him to treat your babies.
