Re: [Felvtalk] First Doses of Imulan For Murphy Rosie

2009-09-21 Thread Christy Buchin

Gray Kitty just turned 2 years old on September 6th.  He was diagnoses on his 
1st birthday.  Up until about 3 or so months ago, he still tested positive with 
both types of tests.  He has had two blood transfusions and two bone marrow 
biopsies.  The second biopsy confirmed the FeLV had gone into his bone marrow 
at UCD.  We also work with a specialist out of Michigan who used to do bone 
marrow transplants in cats.  He along with our vet, has guided us with is meds. 
 We are currently reducing his Prednisolone as he has started a new one that 
will not have as much harmful long term effects on him.

 Hi,
 
 Glad your kitty is testing negative. Could you answer a few questions,
 please?
 
 How old is you cat? How long ago did he test positive for FeLV? Did he test
 positive on an IFA test, or just the SNAP test? How many LTCI shots has he
 had? And why is he on an immune modulator like LTCI and at the same time on
 an immune suppressant like pred.?
 
 Thanks,
 Gary

Thanks for elaborating on Gray Kitty's health and treatment
history, Christy.  We're all obviously interested in how the
LTCI is helping other cats and making comparison notes for
our own kitties who are currently undergoing the same
treatment protocol.  

I am wondering if your vet thinks the blood transfusion was
instrumental in Gray Kitty's ultimate FeLV negative status
or whether it was strictly due to the LTCI administration.
My vet recommended against the blood transfusion for my
Lukey at his last visit because his anemia was stable and
not worsening at that point and because there are also risks
associated with the blood transfusion.  If I thought it
would facilitate a negative FeLV status I would certainly
undertake it along with the LTCI treatments but would need
more information.  Thanks again for your efforts to keep us
all updated with Gray Kitty's history and medical treatment.
I appreciate it very, very much.

We have been through a lot. GrayKitty has been on the LTCI for over 6  
months. He has been testing negative for the last 2-3 months.  
Previously, he had gone through 2 blood transfusions to help deal with  
his anemia. He is also using Interferon, 1 week on and 1 week off.

Re: [Felvtalk] First Doses of Imulan For Murphy Rosie

2009-09-19 Thread S. Jewell
Would love to know how long your cat had been FeLV positive
before being started on Imulan's LTCI and how long he was on
the Imulan before the FeLV negative blood test?  My cat just
received his third injection and though he was heading into
anemia and had stopped eating, with syringe feeding and
three shots on board he's no worse than he was, so we're
hopeful.  Still, it would be wonderful to know what type of
time frame we're looking at for any hope of a negative FeLV
status with the LTCI.  

Thanks so much!

 I wish you the best! My cat uses the same medication  has

 tested negative for leukemia for the last few months. We
have 
 no idea if it is the injections or what. He is also on 
 Prednisolone  has bi-weekly blood test to check levels.
We 
 just take one day at a time. Hang in there!

  Date: Saturday, September 19, 2009, 3:11 AM We have our
fingers 
  crossed!! We arrived at our vet's office right after
the shipment 
  arrived. Rosie and Murphy had their exams and blood
drawn for 
  baselines-CBCs and their 3rd FeLV tests. We have
previous 
 tests from 
  June 3rd this year also. Those tests showed that
Murphy's 
 levels were 
  changing (similar to Schatzi's who just passed less
than a month 
  ago). We are really concerned for our last 2 cats
because Rosie 
  (tabby) is the only female of the litter of 5-her 4
brothers have 
  passed away in the last 5 months from severe anemia.
She has just 
  turned a year old last month-she insists on a game of 
 fetch several 
  times a day with her lamb's wool mouse. (she has
plucked 
 most of the 
  wool off and I can't find another
  one.) Murphy is a semi long haired, polydactyl, tuxedo
boy with 7 
  toes on each front foot and a spare on each hind
foot-He 
 was dumped 
  into the feral colony that Rosie and her brothers came
from. He is 
  the sweetest boy, so playful and just wants to hang out

 with you-he 
  follows you around like a dog. He looks like he has
Ov-Gloves on! 
  Anyway-this disease seems like a switch is flipped on
and there is 
  nothing we can do to save them-we are hoping that using

 this product 
  before the symptoms of anemia appear will give us some 
 chance of them 
  surviving for a long time. Maybe by taking a proactive
approach we 
  will be able to turn the odds a little. We are
beginning with one 
  injection a week for a month, then every two weeks...to

 once a month. 
  Blood will be drawn every two weeks at first. We had
the first 
  injections at the vet's office today (the tech did 
 Murphy's and she 
  watched while I gave Rosie's). I will be giving the 
 remaining 8 doses 
  at home to save costs. We'll have the blood test
results 
 back Monday. 
  Say a little prayer for us.
