Hi there, I'mCustomerand I would be glad to help with your question. I would not recommend getting Virbagen interferon omega from Mexico since it is very expensive and quality would be in question. I have ordered from Abbeyvet in the UK and it was very simple. They actually specialize in exports to other countries and have streamlined the process. They were quick to respond to my email for information and delivered on time without consequence. I was not required to fill out forms and submit them to the FDA. The interferon shipment arrived on time as promised in a cold pack. I would suggest you ask your veterinarian to please contact them and inquire by email about placing an order. This is the email for such an inquiry: ***@******.*** and for opening an account see this link: Tell your veterinarian that you will pay for the product and shipping upfront since I expect part of his reluctance is the expense and concern that customs will cease the shipment. In this way, you assume the risk. Again, the process was smooth when I ordered but the client did pay upfront. When your vet inquires, he can learn the cost of the product and shipping for you. If your vet declines, then I would suggest finding another local vet (perhaps a feline or internal medicine specialist) who may be familiar with the process and cooperate. On another note, I've had good success using Purina Fortiflora feline probiotic once daily for cats with stomatitis. There is no scientific evidence to back this up, but it is a T cell modulator and that may be the reason why it helps. I hope that the information I provided has been helpful.
