There is no problem with giving a FeLV positive cat the FeLV vaccine. Some would say it was just a waste of money (for the positive cat) but there are people on the FeLV lists that have given their positives cats the vaccine every year and some claim to have some very old cats with FeLV. I believe one had had a cat that lived to be 22. I don't think there is any hard evidence as to whether it helps or not, but it won't hurt them.
I'm sure you will hear from others who do it.

However they are inside - outside cats, and are also exposed to rescued cats I bring home to be adopted out. These cats also tested neg. but there is always that window area where FelV may not show up yet or the test may be inaccurate........ I want to have my home cats vaccinated for FelV just in case. Please give me some info. on this...... Do I need to retest them all first, or is it safe to give them the vaccine without testing them. They all appear to be in excellent health, but if they should be pos. would the vaccine hurt them??
