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. http://www.felineleukemia.org/felvhlth.html On Sun, Sep 21, 2008 at 6:01 PM, Laurieskatz <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > I rescued a mama kitty and one kitten 2 months ago. > Both mama and kitten tested negative for FeLV August 3. > Mama stayed at vet office for 19 days.
