Prayers for Puss

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
My beautiful nearly 17 year old male cat Puss is showing the first signs of symptomatic FIV. He's been FIV+ for about 10 years but has been asymptomatic until recently. A visit to the Vets today showed that he had some nasal irritation (he's had some sneezing bouts lately) and more ominously a small patch of dermatitis which apparently can be one of the heralds of symptomatic FIV. He is on a course of antibiotics and a natural supplement to try and boost his immune system but I am coming to terms with the fact that this may be the beginning of the end for my precious baby boy. I am devestated

Please send Puss your prayers (in whatever manner your particular beliefs perscribe) and positive thoughts that he remains as healthy and happy as possible for the remaining time he is with me

Prayer's for Puss. Prayer's for the mama too! It's so heard to deal with our babies getting older and facing this time in their life. You might be able to add a little more time to Puss's life. Have you ever heard of transfer factor? If not, type into a search engine "transfer factor for pets". It's an incredible immune support product.

Thank you all Puss is showing some signs of brightening up but I still have to keep an eye on the small rash on his neck and any other symptoms that may arrise. As well as the antibiotic paste, he's also been given Transfer Factor Plus, which I think is going to be very good for him

Here are some more photos....he's not looking his best in these shots though, bit down in the dumps, these are pre Vet visit

(his eyes aren't blue it's just from the camera flash)

(he's not too happy about the heat (it's summer here)

I'm trying to remain as positive as I can and give him extra love and attention (not that he's not babied and spoiled already)

Poor boy. I hope he is better soon.

I'm pleased Puss is feeling a bit better, and i've heard good things about that Transfer Factor that he's on
