Interferon & FIV Cats
Pardon my English...........

I''ve got a FIV+ cat, 7 yrs old with severe signs of gingivitis/stomatitis. I'd like to start interferon treatment but in the Netherlands as far as I can find; there's not a known dosage.
There's a special cat-interferon on the market. All literature I can find is on the human interferon-alfa

Is there somebody who knows a  ORAL dosage regimen for the cat-interferon (Virbagen from Virbac)
What's the recommended dosage regimen for the interferon-alfa?

Thanks for any reply

The administration of feline omega interferon can prolong the life of cats that are positive for FeLV and or FIV.

The only specific figures on dosage I can recall are from a study done on positive FeLV/ FIV cats that was done recently.  

500,000 units of interferon per pound body weight, once a day for 5 days was given. The results of the study were very optimistic, but further research would need to be done before a definite result could be stated.

Hope this helps!
