Not sure I understand. He was neg for both FIV n FELV 3 weeks ago but is positive now? Do you know what tests were run-possibilities are Elissa (snap test done in office) and IFA (blood work sent out). Swollen lymph nodes could be a lot of things. particularly if he's running around and eating and gaining weight!

He had been treated for a severe anemaia over the past few weeks (transfusions and antibiotics + pred) and as recently as 3 weeks ago was FIV and Felv negative on blood samples. His PCV went from 8 to 26 today - a great recovery. My daughter an I noticed some swollen lymph nodes yesterday and when we showed them to the vets today they said that his prognosis is grave given that we now know he is Felv positve. They beleive there is probably an underlying fast growing cancer responsible for the nodes and have said evenif they find it and treat with chemo he will only have 4 or 5 months at best ( they said take the weekend to think about it). So hard to beleive when you see him running around and purring in your lap and gaining weight. We are pretty broken up about it - he is an awesome 2 year old cat that we got from a shelter only a month ago. Anyone have experiences that are similar or other thoughts? thanks, Sally
