Hi, Gloria, Let me get this straight........Your vet vaccinated FelV positive cats with the FelV vaccine to deal with FelV. I understood that once a cat was FelV positive the vaccine was not going to change it's status, and the cat would still remain positive. Does anyone else know anything about this?
