Question: From what I understand, if the IFA test comes back negative, that may
just mean that while he may have the virus, he's just not shedding it? If the
first two tests are positive and the IFA test comes back negative, doesn't he
still pose some kind of transmission risk to other cats?
Here is a link to a chart that explains what the next step should be
for each type of test result. For positive Elisa, negative IFA, they
recommend retesting after a certain time period until the results are
no longer discordant.
Hope this helps,
Thanks all for the advice. I am new to FeLV, but have spent the past two
doing a crash course in it. Both ELISA tests done were conducted using whole
blood. I am taking Oscar in this afternoon for an IFA test and the results
should be back in 1-2 days. Those results will determine
You tried your best, and your cat had your unconditional love.

I HOPE YOU FOUND OSCAR A HOME. I HAVE 2 POSITIVES AND 5 NEGATIVES AND ALL ARE
DOING WELL. MY ONLY LOSS IS BOB AND HIS PASSING WAS NOT RELATED TO FELV. HE
WAS A STREET CAT BEFORE I GOT HIM AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT HE ALREADY HAD THAT
CONTRIBUTED TO HIS DEATH. IT WAS SO SUDDEN AND WITH NO
You are most welcome, Claudia. I know the loss of an animal friend is
something not all people understand, so it is a gift to have caring support
and condolences from those who do.
I wish you the best of everything on your path, and in your beautiful
connection to other creatures.
