If you still have some of that vaccine, don't throw it away, it needs to be tested. I do not see how a supposedly killed virus vaccine would cause a positive on a restest.

I work with Furkids. My best friend & her family stayed there until 1am giving fluids & taking temps. Luckily we didn't lose any of the kitties. What's worse the cats were testing positive for FeLV when they were retested.

Dear Colleagues,

Furkids had an experience this week with Fort Dodge Leukemia vaccines that
we want to share with you in hopes that no one else has this happen to their
animals.

On July 7, we vaccinated 20 cats with Fort Dodge's Fel-O-Vax-Lv-K vaccine
(167346B, exp. 2/20/11).

ALL 20 cats spiked high temperatures within a few hours of receiving the
vaccine. We recorded temps over 105. We had to send six cats to emergency
(one with seizures). We administered fluids and metacam and benadryl.
Thankfully, the cats seem to be rebounding today. In our eight years, we
have never seen anything like this.

Fort Dodge has offered no explanation. We will no longer be using the Fort
Dodge products and wanted to pass along our experience with their vaccine in
case any of you have the same lot. If you do, you should contact your rep
and return them immediately.
