45 Cat with Stomatitis/inflamed gums
Verified Purchase

By on 19 January 2019

My veterinarian in California was willing to try this based on research to treat my 13-yr old cat with stomatitis. So far we have only gone through 1 pack (I ordered the 2-pack). She has shown significant improvement and is eating again. He has kept the remaining pack refrigerated in case future treatment is needed. I feel this has been easier than dental extractions, less painful, and less costly.

45 Cat with FIP
Verified Purchase

By on 22 July 2017

I was using this product to treat a cat with FIP. I believe if fedex hadn't screwed up, and instead delivered it on time, it might have been more effective. It was to be refrigerated and sent overnight and I received it 3 days late and hot. I had to wait for a second batch to be delivered and VioVet was extremely helpful in this matter. So in a disease where every second counts I was behind the curve. It did seem to help halt some of the progression of the symptoms and I would try it again if the need ever arises.

I bought the whole course (5 packs) for my cat who has Calicivirus - he was vomitting and off his food due to a severely ulcerated mouth - antibiotics only worked temporarily and it was only a matter of time before I had to have him put down. After his first course of 5 injections his mouth is normal and the vomitting has stopped - other reviews I've read say the full course boosts immune system for about 4 years - very happy so far

This is a life saver for cats with FeLV. I have read a lot of research papers that the chances for a cat to get better with Felv even with this medication are very slim, but after 2 courses of injections my cat is back to being energetic and crazy as she used to be. I am yet to give her the third course, but I am very happy with the results already! Thank to Virbac for making this medication, and VioVet for selling it. The delivery is always on time and very quick!

Cat with flu

Al

  • VioVet customer since 2007
  • From: , United Kingdom

My 8 month old maine coon has flu symptoms. He has been treated with interferon at 0.1ml on day 1,4&6 he is 5kgs. He presented with a bacterial infection and at first this responded well to baytril injection he quickly deteriorated when he went on to the tablet form. He has had his antibiotics changed and now the bacterial infection is slowly improving. Is it worth trying interferon again with him after bacterial infection has cleared up and at what dose would we need to use.

  • VioVet Staff

This is difficult to answer by email because there are lots of factors to take into account. Your own vet is in a better position to assess this. However I would say that this interferon product does not always seem to help much in this sort of situation. Microbial culture and sensitivity testing to help with antibiotic choice is an important part of treating the bacterial component and general nursing measures to help with food and fluid intake are also important. I hope things go well.

My cat has leukemia an he is two going on three an he is throwing up an what can I do

Terri

What should I do

  • VioVet Staff

This has to be a question for your own vet, who can properly assess your cat. The Virbagen product might well help, but I am not in a position to be able to advise you. I hope he does well though.

Cost of treatment with this

Dee j

Hi,trying to work out if I can afford to give my cat with wet FIP a chance with this drug, could you give me any idea how much treating a 2kg cat might cost,per treatment or week or month,would be very grateful of any estimate,thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

One 10mu vial contains enough product to treat a 10kg animal. Theoretically this could be 5 treatments for a 2kg cat, but that would mean mixing up the vial with the diluent and then storing the remainder for up to 4 days. Ideally fresh product is mixed up every day, but many vets will use part of a vial and get part or all of a treatment course from 1 vial. The standard treatment course for a cat is one injection per day for 5 days, then a 5 day course repeated again after about 2 weeks, then again at 8 weeks. This means that the cheapest full course for a 2 kg cat would take 3 vials. You have to buy them in pairs and 4 vials would cost about £320. If your vet feels that a fresh vial is needed per day, then that would cost 5 times as much, so you need to check this with your vet.

Feline Leukemia

Luisa Angel

Please I would like to know if the virbac omega will improve the life of a one year old cat that has leukemia? Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

This product is often used for cats like this and the results are variable but there are often signs of improvement with a better quality of life and statistically an increased life expectancy. It is certainly worth trying.

Interferon and low immune system.

Elizabeth

Hi there.
My cat has a very low immune system due to his bad health history. In past it started with Calici virus and now it's chronic Pasteurella spp and recent discovery of toxoplasmosis.
We are considering not just treatment with antibiotic but also Virbac interferon treatment.
We were just wondering is there any information about interferon use in those illnesses?
Many thanks

  • VioVet Staff

We have no special information of our own on this sort of thing. Some people have used the product with variable success for all sorts of immune-related problems and infections. You can search online for reports of these and make your own judgments. We are only able to advise on licensed use, which is in the data sheet. Your own vet is best able to assess these other things.

Side effects of Interferon

Paula Sibley

Our cat is on Interferon for Calicivirus and he tears at his fur nearly all the time. Also tonight after a bout of this his gums bled quite a lot. Are these side effects of Interferon?

  • VioVet Staff

These are not usual side effects with this treatment. Cats which remove their own fur are not unusual and this behaviour is normally associated with allergies affecting the skin (especially flea bites) or sometimes stressed/nervous behaviour (a habit a bit like people biting their nails). I would see your vet about this, or contact a cat behaviourist.

Is it can help to cat that was diagnosed with dry form FIP?

Alona Zakuta

Our kitty is 4 years old was diagnosed with dry form FIP one year ago,in USA,since she is getting POlyprenyl immunostimulant,just want to know if it's can be more helpful to give her as well Feline omega interferon with in,now we living in Israel
Thank u for your attention and time!

  • VioVet Staff

This product has abeen shown to have some beneficial effects in some cats with FIP, but the results tend to be variable and not dramatically better than in untreated patients.I do not think it will cause any harm and so if you an afford it, it might well be worth trying.

Interferon and calici

Anthony

My kitten's test for calici has come back with a low grade infection. I have been told that a course of interferon can clear that and make him non infectious to other cats. Help please!

  • VioVet Staff

This interferon product does help cats to fight viral infections, but it is not as clear cut as you suggest. It seems to be a safe enough treatment and he is likely to benefit from a course of treatment, but the extent to which it will help seems to vary from cat to cat. If the infection is low-grade, there might not be any requirement to treat him at all. If however his symptoms warrant it, then if you can afford the treatment it is sensible to provide it.

Wet FIP n virbagen for cat

Tamar

I have heard virbagenvirbagen and PI are helpful or rather have been somewhat successful in helping cats with FIP the dry version. Will this help my 7 month old kitten with wet FIP. She still likes to eat n lay by my side yet she is anorexic lethargic n the vet drew yellow liquid out of her belly. ....would this ease her discomfort her symptoms? I'm desperate here...

  • VioVet Staff

The effusive form of FIP does sometimes show a response to this drug, particularly if given early on in the development of the condition. Results are variable but occasionally are very good, so it would certainly be worth discussing this with your vet. We can supply it on receipt of a written prescription from your vet.
