The thing is that the neurological issues are not actually caused by FELV virus itself. They are caused by whatever condition the cat develops. If a cat who is FELV neg were to develop a tumor such as you describe, they would also have some neurological problems.

My recently diagnosed FeLV cat has been having periods of neurological issues almost since the day of diagnosis- we believe they are a result of a tumor on the spinal column/brain. Although my vet has not seen many FeLV+ cats with neuro issues, he says it isn't unheard of either. He does believe that most of those cases are either side effects of medication (as mentioned by someone else) or resulting from tumors. _________________________________________________________________ Windows LiveT: Life without walls. http://windowslive.com/explore?ocid=TXT_TAGLM_WL_allup_1a_explore_032009 _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
