I think they do test positive after being vaccinated.....

These were healthy cats who were to be going to Petsmart locations or to be
adopted from our cage-free shelter. We vaccinate all cats being put up for
adoption.

I'm so glad that all are OK!  I don't trust any vaccines - besides, all
vaccines do not guarantee anything; they are only 80% effective according to
my vet.
I assume that these were healthy cats that were vaccinated....why are they
being vaccinated?  Will they be living with FeLV+ cats, outside in a colony
or adopted and allowed outside?  Cats were tested, were negative, then
retested and were positive - was that after vaccines? I think I'm missing
something here. Sorry - Natalie

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.

Received this warning from Furkids Rescue:

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.
