My male cat SHerman was just diagnosed with FIV. we are looking at holistic changes to diet and care. Also, his urine lab work showed PH or 8.5 (sturvite crystals). At the bottom of the report is "2+ AMM MG PHOS (3-5)". I cannot find out what this means and I think the vet we have has not the patience to answer all my questions. can any one decypher this for me? what should I be doing? Right now i have increased wet food and H20 in the wet food, and am giving him a holistic paste for uterine health.( NaturVet Urinary SUpport)
our food is wellness and it has a good acidic level ( i called them).
Any FIV+ advice? i am also brushing his teeth to combat gingivitus that he has the beginnings of.
he had a fever a coupe weeks ago which led to the FIV+ W. blotch results . was tested when we rescued him 2 yrs ago but it was negative. his is 2 yrs 4 mos estimated and very cute.
He also had a bad reaction to his 4 in 1 vaccination last yr ( we dint know he was FIV at the time) Should we get him vaccinated just for rabies now ( the law in CA)? or one at a time for all the other shots? Killed virus vs. live? Help!!!!!
thank you - we love this little guy so much..
