Subject: [Felvtalk] Fluid in chest cavity

Hello Everyone,
I've been away from the list for a very long time, but of course we 
always come back when we have a baby in trouble.  Hideyo called me and 
asked if I would contact you to help with research on how to help a 
friend of her's felv+ Tortie girl name Pistachio.

Pistachio is two years old and before this she's had no symptoms and 
been very healthy and happy.  For the last couple of weeks she's lost 
weight and recently they found out she was building up fluid in her 
chest cavity.  They removed 100cc of fluid last Friday 13th, it was 
rather clear.  They don't know what's causing (waiting for reports), so 
right now the only thing she's on is abx (I asked Hideyo which abx, and 
she said she couldn't remember the name, but had never heard of it 
before).  They don't know what's causing it, but of course because she's 
felv+ they are just blaming that.  After the fluid was removed, she 
returned to her happy self and began eating and acting normal.  She's 
still okay now, but her breathing is more labored then it would be 
normally, (faster respiratory rate).

So, here's the question...  What do you wonderful experienced people 
usually suggest first when there is fluid build up?  Are there any 
success stories, or does this usually mean the beginning of the end?  
Her friend is of course a little panicked and needs help!

Hideyo had wondered about Lasix, but the vet didn't want to use it 
because something to do with the location of the fluid deposit (she's a 
little vague about exactly why).  Hideyo was thinking Interferon, 
Imulin, some sort of diuretic herb, Rutin (sp?)...  What should they do?

I'm writing for Hideyo and her friend because Hideyo's can not get 
online until tomorrow at work.   Could you please cc any response 
directly to Hideyo's email address until she can re-join the list?
Thank you guys, bless you and your babies,
Nina

I hope I will never hve to use it, but Missouri University just established  an 
animal cancer treatment center less than 1 hour from me.  Now, if something 
comes up, it is a shorter drive than going all the way to Columbia.  Nice to 
have something like that so close by.

Re: [Felvtalk] Fluid in chest cavity

My Fuji had labored breathing.  We discovered that she had fluid caused by a 
mass that was found to be Mediastinal lymphoma. She has been receiving chemo 
for 10 months and you can't even tell she is sick. 

My VooDoo had a couple of episodes of labored breathing and the xray showed a 
small amount of fluid. He was given antibiotics for a sniffle and has been fine 
since.
