Wow, Kathryn...what a rough weekend-for the both of you! It sounds like it took a while for the antibiotic to kick in for him...and that can make us completely frantic with worry, I know! I am still learning a lot about the disease process...but it sounds like he might get through this

Ebony was an adult feral when he moved in with me. I bought a 6x6x12 chain link dog kennel, put a top (very securely) on it and attached it to the house by way of a bathroom window. He went thru a dog/cat door into duct work then onto a landing and into the kennel. He loved it all his

Dee, Wow! What an improvement in the weight! Bless you for taking care of this little furbaby. I know he is SOO thankful for you guys! You might consider giving him probiotics to supply him with the good bacteria that the Baytril will wipe out while he is on it. I hope you get some good

baytril comes in a flavored chewable form that some cats take readily--talk to your vet about that i have persians, who are a real pain to pill because of their tiny little mouths--hard to even do the pop-the-mouth-open-shove-pill-to-back-of-throat trick cuz there's no ROOM in there

I'm not qualified to answer many of your questions - but I can't help but think that the significant weight gain is a very good sign. I always try to get liquid meds when I can since we have the technique down here...but as to pills, in my view - the quicker you can get the business over

Dee, I very, very strongly recommend giving him Immuno-Regulin (See articles on www.felineleukemia.org website). It helped my Patches recover from pneumonia quickly. I think I only got her 1 shot. With Ginger it took 2 to get rid of a bad URI. Others have had good results with it too. It

He's probably getting Winstrol to stimulate his kidneys into making rbc's. It's great that he's gained weight! I don't think the interferon can hurt; in retrospect, I would have given it to Cricket had I known what I know about it now. Glad he's a happy kitty Cindy! :) Wendy --- cindy

Hey Cindy, Equistim or something like that is probably what the vet called it. It is the same thing as ImmunoRegulin. Is your kitty getting the IR injected into a vein in the arm/leg or are you just giving kitty the injection in the skin (like sub-Q)? :) Wendy --- cindy reasoner [EMAIL

Yes that is the name of it. I am just giving him an injection in the skin. I have a diabetic cat (Katie) that I have to give insulin shots. The needle sure isn't as easy to get in the skin as an insulin needle and I don't have much experience giving shots but I get it done. The other vet I was
