That's a reasonable cost! It means that the virus is in his bone marrow already.
Glad he came through OK - good thing that neutering is such a short and easy procedure. It's a good idea TO TEST, BECAUSE YOU CAN TAKE STEPS TO HELP THE CAT THAT IS POSITIVE BY PROVIDING EXTRA NUTRITION, VITAMINS, ETC.

He came thru ok. As a precaution, the vet gave fluids during the surgery b/c his bloodwork showed slightly elevated in one of the kidney function areas which the vet thought might be due to dehydration. Sadly, he tested positive under the IFA test after testing positive under ELISA in Nov. But he seems ok. Unfortunately I have to keep him isolated. Both tests were sent out, the ELISA cost 55 and the IFA 85. Is this the norm? If I didn't have other cats, I don't think I would do routine testing if the cat was not showing any symptoms and i kept the cat indoors.
