Absolutely Let me know. I will keep my fingers crossed. She will be vaxed, checked out, and spayed before she is rehomed. Also food, toys and a carrier will come with her. Thank you for considering her. I will keep my fingers crossed. Thank you Jeni Date: Tue, 5 Aug 2008 19:11:13

She will be vaxed, checked out, and spayed before she is rehomed. Can you get around vaxing her? If she is FeLV+, she should NOT be vaccinated. Only healthy, virus-free animals should be vaccinated. Check your vaccine manufacturer's directions. This is what my vaccine (Intervet Protex-3) says

I know that the party line is that they shouldn't be vaccinated, and I've always understood that. But I know of a vet in Oklahoma who *did* advocate vaccinating FELVs as a part of enhancing the immune response. Surprised me, but the cats I got were from that project were 10 years old and

My vet wouldn't vaccinate BooBoo when we first took him in. And he told us at the time that if he became well enough to vaccinate he would have to order it in as the regular vaccinations would not be good for him. I'm not sure what he meant at the time but then again I was just getting over

Well I thought my boyfriend would go for it but he said absolutely not and I couldn't talk my dad into it either.  I was sure my boyfriend would say yes once I talked to him a little, but he's dead-set against it.  No one else responded to you?  If it was completely up to me, I would take her.

So wait...my Ash is FeLV+ and getting neutered on the 28th, but he's going in for all his shots on the 14th.  He needs to be fixed because he's spraying and I can't have that.  He can't be fixed without his vaxes.  What should I do?  Jennifer - PROUD VEGETARIAN LOCAL SPCA VOLUNTEER.  Be their

He most assuredly can be. I have had non-FeLV+ spayed (much more serious) without their vaccinations. Talk to the vet and if you can't do anything find another one. I just took LCK and LGK to the vet to be checked out (they came in from the pine thicket--long story). They went in at

Really?  I had no idea vets didn't need to vaccinate in order to neuter/spay.  I guess it's their way of getting more money.  I will run that by my vet and tell him I don't want Ash to get any shots because of his FeLV+ status, and see what he says.  See, that's the thing that bugs me.  Vets

My vet neutered BooBoo and would not vaccinate him. He said if he had survived he may have in the future but even then it would not be the standard vaccines but something he would have to order in. Lynne - Original Message - From: Jennifer [EMAIL PROTECTED] To:
