Default more about interferon side effects

Please see this link:

http://www.petplace.com/drug-library...n-a/page1.aspx

Here it lists liver damage and nervous system damage, in addition
to other side effects mentioned in the previous thread, such as
loss of appetite and throwing up, as possible side effects.

My vet saw the cat again two days ago. At that time I told him
about having waited a week to start the interferon, and about my
concern about side effects. He told me that he had never seen
side effects from interferon.

We are now in the week off from interferon, after the first week on
it.
Next Monday, the day before interferon is to start again, the cat is
to be neutered. I will bring him home the next day, when the
interferon
is to start again. The vet seems to think that the interferon may
help
with any weaknesses that the cat, having leukemia, might have
aggrivated by the neutering. He recommended timing the neutering
so that it would be followed by a week back on interferon.

Does any of this make sense to those of you who are serious?

You already said that. Please leave me alone to
talk to people about what is best for this cat.

Have you got a second opinion??

If you are not going to listen to the advice that the others here have gave
you. Specially YOUR OWN VET and what Phil P. gave you. If not WHAT THE
HECK DO YOU WANT. Honestly

I'm listening to everything. Please try to see this from my
perspective. This is the first time one of my cats has been
prescribed something to be taken indefinitely, for as long
as the cat lives. Naturally I care about side effects.
How can you fault me for that? I have given a link which
states that possible side effects are

liver damage
nervous system damage
loss of appetite
vomiting

I will be giving the cat interferon for the second week, starting
tuesday, after a week off. But after that, unless someone can
give me good reason to ignore the four warnings listed above,
the interferon will be stopped. If 'Phil P' thinks those specific
warnings should be ignored, then let him tell me why.

It doesn't help for you and 'cybercat' to barge into this thread
with nothing to offer except name-calling, which doesn't have
any effect on me anyway.

Here is the link again:

If you're serious, and not just a hostile name-caller, then please
read what it says under 'Precautions and Side Effects'.

Have you read the side effects of the medication your doctor gives you? WHY
WOULD YOU EVER TAKE THAT MEDICINE?

You've been told by experts that this is the right thing to do for your cat,
in your cat's situation. Now what the **** do you want from us?

I want you and Matthew to go away. I want the others to
explain why it is wise to give a cat never-ending medication
that may cause these side effects:

liver damage
nervous system damage
loss of appetite
vomiting
anemia

AIN'T going to happen it is called the WWW aka internet aka a free posting
forum I have been here a lot longer than you have ever thought about using
the internet and I have helped more people with their pets both in real
life, rescues and this forum than you can even thinking of every recalling
in your life.

So again I understand asking questions. It is a scary thing to have a
person, friend, family member or pet go through long term problems. But
THEY HAVE EXPLAINED BUT YOU ARE NOT LISTENING. STAY THE "F" off the
internet blogs and if you have questions that your vet is not explaining to
you or that you can't get from the forum. CALL ANOTHER VET FOR A SECOND
OPINION.

Every medication that is on the market can have dangerous side effect from
simple aspirin to herb supplements to the new experimental drugs.

Why anyone would do what you ask is to save the animal. To at least give
them a fighting chance. One of my cats has epilepsy. He is allergic to
pentobarbital the common given medication. He had to go on diazepam one
of the side effects is possible liver and kidney damage. He has been off of
it for years and been seizure free for years. My option put him to sleep or
give him the medication and keep him around living a good life for many
years to come.

AGAIN HONESTLY WHAT DO YOU WANT. No one is going to get on a plane come to
you and hold your hand.

Phil has listed so much information for you which I bet you have looked up
on the www have you discussed it with your vet. If so and you still have
questions CALL ANOTHER VET. That would be 3 plus people telling you what
to do.

You may not like what me or cyber has to say but welcome to Real life. If
I was to come there I would drag you down to the vets office and make him
write it all out for you. Show the vet all of the info provide by our
resident helpers. Ask him if this was true. If you still had issues. Than
drag you to another vet for a second physical opinion; third plus opinion
and make them write it down for you again. If there was a difference of
agreement I would find a third vet. We do it when we have problems. Is
this so hard or do I need crayons and a etch-a-sketch
