 gums and tongue seem okay for him - not white and he's on pet-tinic 2x per

Hi Stacy,

It seems to me you care very much about Spanky and want to do the very best
for him just like I would. It also sounds like you don't trust your vets so
much. I would suggest a holistic vet. I am very leery of all the
conventional meds as well and tend to think they may do more harm than good,
and they sometimes tend to mask the symptoms and not really cure the
underlying problem. I really don't like to give antibiotics, but if I
absolutely had to, I would also give them a probiotic as well to keep the
good bacteria in check. Most vets carry Fortiflora that you can add to their
food.  I have been lucky with my felv+ kitty so far (and my other 4 neg's
who range in age from 3-13), but I attribute their awesome health to their
homemade raw diet which they have been on for over 2 years now...it really
has changed their life and mine...I wonder what you are feeding. To me, diet
is extremely important. I'm sure this advice doesn't help much right now,
and I understand being hesitant to give them something that may cause yet
another issue. I wish you and Spanky well.

Hi Tracey:

Thanks for your reply. I actually do trust my main vet, he is very open minded 
and looks at all my research and does research as well, and he actually does 
acupuncture and chinese herbs.   He referred me to the specialist/derm once so 
she could have a look at his lesions and see if she thought they were 
cancerous.  she suggested biopsy/surgery which he would never be able to 
tolerate so we opted to try the neoplasene.  It did shrink 3 of them after just 
one application but then I elected to not salve again right away in his present 
condition. 

He's not any better today and just looking really terrible. I'm going to see if 
I can try to get him into the vet.  I am not sure if he has an infection, is 
more anemic or if he's just tired of fighting. In any case, it is very 
frustrating and disheartening and you just feel helpless and hopeless seeing 
your furbaby like this. 

As far as him eating, he used to eat wellness grain free canned and dry. Now he 
eats whatever I can get him to eat which isn't much at all. I've been syringing 
food into him this past week and giving fluids. Even with the appetite 
stimulant, he's not very interested in food.  I understand the importance of a 
high quality diet/nutrition but if he won't eat, I have to just try to get him 
to eat something.

Purrs,

The probiotics might be a good idea - some good bacteria in the tummy/ 
gut, and certainly providing nutrients.  Might try syringing some  
chicken/turkey baby food too.  Sometimes just getting something into  
the belly helps.


Good luck - sending good vibes for Spanky.

 expensive and only had reviews by people who had tried it to go on, but as 
 bad as she was, i figured i had nothing to loose.

 Hi:
 
 Spanky has not been doing well this week. He's very low energy more than 
 normal, weak and won't get out of bed unless I pick him up and make him get 
 up and walk around. He's been eating fair with an appetite stimulant and 
 using his litter box  - again when I get him up and take him near it.  His 
 gums and tongue seem okay for him - not white and he's on pet-tinic 2x per 
 day.  
 
 When I took him to the dermatologist, she prescribed clavamox for him just 
 in case he had an infection but then my regular vet had me hold off since 
 we did the neoplasene salve on him.  Now I am wondering if I should try 
 giving him the antibiotic anyway just in case.  I gave him fluids for the 
 past 2 nights also - 50 ml and last night almost 100ml  because he's not 
 drinking very much.  
 
 In any case, I'm just looking for advice about  clavamox. I don't want to 
 make him feel sicker but I'm not sure how he'd handle it - if it makes cats 
 nauseous. 
 
 also, we did the neoplasene salve and it seemed to shrink the growth in his 
 nose and
 his other 2 lesions.  The vet recommended doing the salve again but at
 this point, I'm not sure we will. 
 
 
 Thanks so much,
 Stacy and Spanky
