Treating FeLV With Newer Methods

Only veterinarians can request these drugs from these sources.

ImmunoRegulin by Neogen 1-888-282-8381

Note: Immunoregulin is available from Neogen for "extra-label-use" only.

This drug is not recommended for use once a cat develops any type of lymphosarcoma. It is also recommended that the FeLV+ cat be taken off of steroids such as "Prednisone" at least a week before starting this treatment- although I've recieved two reports that have suggested using Prednisone in conjunction with Immunoregulin if the associated anemia is severe.

PROTOCOL:  Proprionibacterium acnes (Immumoregulin via Immunovet)

Protocol A.
0.5ml IV twice a week for 2weeks. Then 0.5ml
once a week for 3 weeks.
Then 0.5ml IV once a month for 2 months or as
needed to maintain health status.

Protocol B.
0.5ml/cat IV once or twice a week as needed
