My name is Wolfie and I was adopted from the streets about 2 years ago. I am FIV+ with stomatitis and my caretakers are doing all they can (diet, cortisone injections every month to ease the pain so that I will eat) to keep me alive and healthy.
I have a two part question. My caretakers have looked into other alternatives for my stomatitis, but my vet doesn\'t recommend any of them (pulling teeth as well as using some of the expensive medication used on human aids patients). Does anyone else have experience with FIV/stomatitis and has been able to relieve the symptoms? I am eating Innova EVO (I tried a pre-cursor to the raw food diet and didn\'t do so well on that) with Hi-Vite, Vita Coat and I just started taking Yucca extract. If anyone has success with stomatitis, could you please contact my caretakers with your \"program\"?
Also, I have begun to fall off of furniture while I am resting. All of a sudden, I am on the floor with no explanation. I don\'t have any seizure symptoms and either I or my caretakers help me back up to where I was sleeping. This doesn\'t happen every time I rest...just intermittently. Sometimes I fall from the printer that I am sleeping on, other times I fall from the window sill onto a cabinet. Am I just clumsy or do I have a neurological condition? My vet seems to think it\'s the former. I didn\'t use to do this...it just started about 1 month ago.
Thank you all for any info you can share with me. My caretakers are really worried about my health and seeing that I have a very happy existence.
