I've heard from some of the vets that FeLV can hide in the bone marrow for a while before ever showing up on a combo test. How long do you think that can happen before the combo tests shows positive? Anyone have experience with this? If the FeLV + cat and the other cat have been living together for a year and the healthy cat's combo test was negative after a year together with lots of exposure, is there a chance it is still hiding in the healthy cat's bone marrow and not showing up yet? It seems to me that a year would be enough time for the virus to show up in a test.
“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
