Feline AIDS - interesting
« on: November 08, 2017, 08:49:59 PM »
In my searching about iodine and cats, I stumbled across this.  NOTE:  This is NOT an endorsement, I just thought it was interesting:

Feline AIDS and iodone:

In an uncontrolled case study, it was found that an adult cat diagnosed with end-stage FIV recovered within eight weeks of treatment with a daily oral gavage of a commercially available iodine solution (tincture of iodine (2.5% w/v), 4 mg in 10 ml water, three times daily). Moreover, for at least five years there was no further clinical evidence of disease in this cat. The animal’s recovery may have been due to iodine’s broad spectrum therapeutic effect on opportunistic infections, or possibly because of suppression of viraemia.

Could iodine be effective in the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus and AIDS-associated opportunistic infections? (PDF Download Available). Available from: [accessed Nov 06 2017].
