VCA Berwin Aninimal Hosp, Illinois just called back, and we spoke with the Dr., from there, we are going to go ahead with the blood transfusion with a follow up of this drug when it is available.

We found a drug called Lymphocyte T-Cell Immunomodulator (LTCI) from IMULAN BioTherapeutics, the first and only conditionally approved treatment aid in the United States for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV or Feline AIDS) infections to give to him starting this weekend. Cost is anywhere from $25-190 depending upon from where you order it out of.
Blood transfusion went well and now er can only hope the drug does what it was designed to do.
Thank you again for your advice.
