So Ash is FeLV+ and getting neutered on the 28th, but he's going in 
for all his shots on the 14th.  He needs to be fixed because he's spraying and 
I can't have that.  He can't be fixed without his vaxes.  What should I do?

Can you get around vaxing her? If she is FeLV+, she should NOT be
vaccinated. Only healthy, virus-free animals should be vaccinated. Check
your vaccine manufacturer's directions. This is what my vaccine (Intervet
Protex-3) says on the label:

"Only healthy animals should be vaccinated. Animals incubating any
or animals stressed due to shipping, malnutrition or parasitism may not
achieve or maintain an adequate immune response."

Her immune system is being taxed by the virus, she does not need further
challenges to her immune system. Contrary to popular belief, vaccines are
NOT harmless.
