Hi everyone- A few days ago I posted about a foster cat who tested positive via a SNAP test for FeLV. We brought him in for the IFA test and I just found out that he tested negative! This is certainly very welcome news. I understand that we will have to have him retested, but this result is certainly more encouraging than a positive result!
>From what I understand, FeLV cats are usually only infectious when they reach stage 5 of the disease. Oscar got in a very brief (30 second) fight with another foster cat about a week ago. I had her SNAP tested (negative) and have confined her ever since pending a retest in 30 days. Since Oscar is not infectious, is it safe to let her out of her confinement or would you recommend keeping her quarantined for another month?
