Product Info

Zidovudine is used in cats for the treatment of FIV and FeLV. The drug effect is considered palliative. If given within 1 week of exposure to FeLV, no viremia occurs. If given within 3 weeks of exposure, the antigen load is decreased. The efficacy on full blown infections is uncertain.

Side Effects

Zidovudine may cause blood dyscrasias including anemia and neutropenia. It may cause disturbances in liver function and gastrointestinal disturbances. When Zidovudine is being administered on a regular basis it is prudent to monitor the CBC. Blood cell damage may be prevented or treated with vitamin E or erythropoietin.
