Michelle, I am relatively new to the group, but I do agree with Beth that it
is important to test all the kittens. We used to do what your vet said y
ears ago, then discovered on more than one occasion since, that if a mom is
negative it does not mean the kittens ARE negative. We had a case where mom
was negative all the time and 2 of her five kittens were positive FeLV and
the rest were always negative. If there is no hurry, I'd do what you can
this month and test another or two the next  month to  help with expenses.
Do you have a rescue group nearby that uses the IDEXX tests and does their
own testing? WE can do it for way less than the vets can even order the
tests and they might help you too. 
good luck with them. Carmen and furballs at C & W Rustic Hollow Shelter. >
