Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 11 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

If your cat has not been tested for FIV, I would do that. Otherwise, I would try oral steroids. You start with twice daily, then go down to once daily, then you try to maintain on every other day steroids. It is much cheaper than the injections and ends up with lower amounts of steroid in the system long term, which is healthier. It comes in pills or liquid. Other than that, you can try an immunosuppressive medication such as cyclosporine, which will have fewer side effects and should produce the same results.

I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Bonuses are not necessary, but are appreciated, as they go directly to me rather than to the website. Best of luck.
