What exactly is FELV and FIV?
Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus are two highly contagious viruses found in our feline communities. FELV and FIV have a wide range of effects on the feline body and overall deplete the immune system. These two viruses are easily spread from cat to cat and are not curable once infected. Infection is mainly spread from contact with infected secretions such as saliva, but also can be transferred via blood, urine, feces, and breast milk.
Who should be tested?
- All new felines purchased or adopted and brought into your home.
- All new kittens.
- Felines with fever, lethargy, chronic respiratory infection or chronic dental/gum infections.
How is the test performed? How long does it take to receive results?
The FELV/FIV test is a very simple test that requires a small blood sample. We run this test in house and
the results take approximately 15-20 minutes.
