Thanks for the clarification, Gloria. I'm glad for that answer.

No, unlike the FIV vaccination, the FELV vaccination doesn't cause them to test positive. If they do test positive, however, it's a good idea to retest.

Hi, all,

This has probably been covered before here, but please permit me to ask a newbie question:

If a cat who shows up at a shelter has been vaccinated against FeLV but nobody knows it, does he test positive on the SNAP combo test?

This really grinds my gears that cats get euthanized based on this test if this is so. I've lost two really nice potential Siamese Rescue intakes this way (we don't take positives in our program and my local SPCA's policy is to euthanize positives).
