My three year old female cat has lymphoma. One tumor is behind the
right eye and "maybe" one internally. so the eye vet claims.

She is on Interferon 2-alpha, 1cc every 24 hours, one week on and one
week off. I also give her Dexamethasone, one drop 4x a day and Atropine
ointment, 1/4 inch strip once a day and Timolol 0.5%, one drop 2x a day
and Ginseng 18, 1 half tablet 2x a day (total 700 mg a day) and
Prednisone 5 mg once a day.

She weighs 8.4 lbs. and seems to be losing her appetite somewhat. (even
her love for shrimp).

1. Is there an oral chemo that I could give her that any of you have
tried? I'll listen to any successful home remedies also.

2. Could I disolve a human's "Centrum Silver" multi-vitamin in with
milk and a blended whole egg for her to eat or feed through a tube
directly into her throat that would taste good? ....... (little
sugar?). I have pet vitamins, but would the aforementioned vitamin be
more of a boost to her system without fear of a vitamin overdose?

3. I'm avoiding I.V. chemo at this time due to the horror stories I've
heard about their onset of stomach sickness , vomiting and general

Thanks for your time and understanding.
Best regards to all you cat lovers, John
