Re: Whitey's Test Results and vaccinations

2007-10-20 Thread laurieskatz
Hello. My vet does only one vaccination at a time and does them separately from 
the spay/neuter. He goes 2-4 weeks between each vaccination and the altering. 
Is there any point in vaccinating him for feline leukemia? I would be hesitant, 
I guess. Just my opinion. I only do the distemper series and rabies now. I am 
considering discontinuing all vaccinations for my immune compromised cats 
(allergies and asthma).  All my cats have had the feline leukemia in earlier 
years. None have been vaccinated for it since 2001.

Wow Michael!  The things we do for our kitties!  I am so glad his test was 
negative!  It sounds like you are exstatic!  The only thing I am wondering now 
is if it's too soon to do his vaccines.  Is he feeling really good and not sick 
at all?  I worry about that because the vaccines make some kitties feel bad and 
if Whitey is already under the weather, it might not be a good combo right now. 
 Please keep us posted
  I've thought about that, Wendy.  Corky Romano said he was going to check his 
labs first, and then if everything looks ok, proceed with the other stuff.  I'm 
thinking I may ask him to do the dental work, labs and neutering, and wait off 
for a couple of weeks on the vaccines to make sure he's up to it.  I know my 
other girls got terribly ill when they had all three of their vaccines at once. 
The more I've thought about it, the more I think that may be the best course of 
action.

Laurie/Jane:
 
Laurie, I'm vaccinating him for FeLV because I do have two positive cats in  
the house.  Granted, he's isolated in a separate area, I'd still just feel  
better, considering his close proximity to the virus, having him  vaccinated.
 
Jane, I'm not sure what you're asking when you ask how I posted his  
picture??  The pic was taken in the vet's office with a camera phone, which  
Jeff sent 
to me.  I then inserted the pictures in an email and sent  them.  Whitey is 
living in my sunroom, so taking pictures isn't hard.   I'm sorry if I'm missing 
the point of what you're asking?

I did not think it possible to send photos to the list.

Laurie,
 
I'm not sure.  Possibly because I inserted the pictures in the email  instead 
of attaching them as files?  You might try that.
