Can cats with FeLV live a healthy and normal life?

Can cats with FeLV live a healthy and normal life

Cooper is a sweet kitty who’s got a second chance in life thanks to his mom’s good intuition and hope. Cooper was a rescue kitten, so his mom thought it was a good idea to have him checked at the vet. He tested negative for feline leukemia (FeLV) the first time, but a couple of months later, his mom noticed he was acting a little odd. Cooper wasn’t eating well and he wasn’t as active as usual, so his mom decided to take him for another vet visit, only to find out that he did actually have FeLV.

Unfortunately, feline leukemia can go into remission or lay dormant in kittens, even after a negative test, so it is always a good idea to do a retest after 6 months or so. The immune system of cats with FeLV can become very weak and present many symptoms including upper respiratory infections, weight loss, loss of appetite, poor coat condition and lethargy, so cats with FeLV should be given extra support.

With good care though, they can pretty much be like any normal cat – sometimes lazy, sometimes playful, sometimes purring, sometimes wild, but they are all great fur companions!

At the time, Cooper’s vets were worried about his condition and they even told his mom that he would have to be put down. Thankfully, knowing her kitty and trusting her intuition, Cooper’s mom did some research and found NHV’s supplements to help him beat the odds and bring him back to a normal kitty life.

First Update – December 2018 (Few weeks after starting NHV)

If you own a cat…please read: Update on our Cooper. He turned one in Sept. He’s a rescue kitty who tested negative for feline leukemia. But right before Thanksgiving (this yr) he was acting odd & we took him to the vet only to find out he DID have FL. Apparently it can lay dormant in kittens ,even after a neg. test. So PLEASE have your kittens retested after 6mos. Anyway, the temporary vet we saw(not our normal doc) acted like he had to be put down within a few days. My intuition told me otherwise. I did some research & found ‘NHV FELIMM’ SO amazing!!! All natural herbs. After just 2-3 weeks he’s gained weight back, trots around the house, eats like a biggy…wants to sneak outside 😸😻all normal cats things. Please pass this company, NHV, to other pet owners. They have all sorts of remedies to help cats & dogs with cancer & other ailments. I’ll keep ya posted but for now we’re just thrilled that he’s still having a much more normal cat life. Continued blessings are always appreciated 🙏🙌💗 BTW, this pic with the ‘Coopy stretch’ … That’s when I knew he was feeling better 😀

Cooper’s mom posted the first update on her Instagram account @desertwitchstudio just a couple of weeks after Cooper started taking NHV’s supplements and almost a month later came another one!

Within a few days he was eating and building up his strength. Now he runs to his room for food. With NHV products I believe cats may have more than nine lives.

Second Update – February 2019

“He even started using his scratch post that he hasn’t done in months.”

Part of Cooper’s healing program includes sitting on top of the pools waterfall and basking in the sun.

Ups and downs

Recently, Cooper started to show signs of a flare up. His sores on his head came back and he started to have soft stools. His mom got in touch with us and our Vet Team recommended to increase the dose of his supplements. Our blends are gently and safely formulated so they can be doubled if needed, preferably, after consulting one of the NHV Pet Experts.

Out Pet Expert team also recommended a higher dose of NHV Plantaeris as a natural relief to help his diarrhea and All Clear Ointment to be applied topically on his sores.

Update – March 2019

It looks like his poops are starting to form normal. And the sore on his head has scabbed & peeled…. so that’s looking better. He still eats & drinks really good.

Sometimes Cooper has abnormal breathing rates, some days he will hide and want time alone. But his mom keeps NHV Pet Experts updated to work on his doses. His anemia is the most recent symptom that Cooper’s integrative team is working on. A higher dose of NHV Multi Essentials is helping. Barring those few down days, Cooper is a mischievous little kitty and loves to play guide and playmate to his cat sibling, Sophie, a healthy one-eyed kitten.

Sometimes his mom needs to integrate antibiotics and steroids. “The combination with your products have helped him tremendously. He seems so happy and content. His eyes look healthy & his mane is starting to grow back. Yay, Cooper!”

This is him enjoying his backyard, like a normal and healthy cat!
