You might also try mixing pumpkin with wet food to help with the diarrhea. I have cats (and a dog) that get diarrhea on antibiotics. I admire what you've taken on. Good luck with all the cats you have rescued, and welcome to the list. tonya Gloria Lane [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: What

What a loving thing you've done! I do like interferon alpha, but find different vets sell it for different prices. I've found a less expensive source locally and generally give 1/2 cc daily to FELV cats that are less than 3 yrs old, or if they're sick like yours. I've been using

Thanks for the Kaopectate information. I'll pass that on. Pumpkin and apple pectin work for diarrhea control too. On Feb 25, 2008, at 8:51 AM, Gloria Lane wrote: What a loving thing you've done! I do like interferon alpha, but find different vets sell it for different prices. I've found

I'll have to try the Apple pectin, if I can find it. I'm hoping I can continue to get the kaopectate (old formula). It's easy to syringe. I make a bunch of syringes, leave them out, and grab a couple when I'm rushing off to work, you know. If I can get and try Apple pectin, that might be

Hi El, Thank you for taking in those severely neglected cats. I cannot believe (though that's a figure of speech) that the FeLV+ girl was in such horrible shape, coming from a shelter. You have given all of them a new lease on life. I'm always grateful that there are people like you out
