If you can find a vet to do it, I'd try the vitamin C therapy in a New York Minute. I've never used Acemannan, but have read a lot about it and it sounds good too. When I checked into it a few years ago, it was hard for me to get. Course you'd have to find a competent vet willing to do

Acemannan is now easy enough to get, but must come through a vet. They just had a $64 price increase and I paid $228 for the package of four 10 mg bottles and that doesn't last long if you have a large cat. Sometimes they have specials on it from the distributors, got my first package on

Laura, I am sorry to hear about your situation. To be honest, I would probably contact a vet out of state, pick up the injections and do it myself. They are simply subcutaneous injections that can be easily given. If you are near a state border, I would drive and personally pick it up myself.

folks, NEVER underestimate the absurdity of governmental agencies: for awhile, it was illegal to import FELIWAY spray/diffuser oil into the state of MI--mail-order companies couldn't ship it in, stores had to pull it from their shelves and couldn't sell it, etc. seems that it hadn't undergone the

My vet spoke with several people at whatever state department deals with drugs and so on, and apparently nobody can get LTCI, even the clinics who'd been previously using it. It is so, so frustrating (especially since I just refinanced and so - for once - I actually have some money!). Since I'm
