Hi Laurie,

Personally we only test cats once with the SNAP test if it comes back
negative.  We start the vaccination series immediately upon getting a
negative SNAP result.

Certainly I wouldn't go to the expense of an IFA if you have a previous
negative SNAP test.

But, as everything, it is an individual decision.

Here is a chart from the main site that may help you.
