Hi guys, I am pretty familiar with FeLV but heard something that is alarming and am hoping there is someone that can give feedback on this.
Our rescue took in a nursing mother cat and her two kittens and a 5 month old kitten, unrelated, at the same time. These cats were in the same quarantine room but in separate holding pens (having no direct contact with each other). The 5 month kitten tested strong positive for FeLV and does have very large nodes. She also had a bad case of fleas. I read that FeLV can be transmitted through fleas - has anyone done research, or spoken with a well qualified veterinarian about this? The mother cat and her kittens have not shown any evidence of fleas or fleas dirt but I am still concerned about this potential for transmission, especially since they are newborns.
