It's probably just a matter of personal choice at this point, but we vaccinated our FelV- cat once a year and we decided not to re-test after the first year of exposure. Honestly, if they are adult cats, and they haven't become FelV+ within a year, its probably a slim chance they will ever become

Hi everyone - Just asking if you guys could say a little prayer for Bernie (1 yr. 8mos FelV +) He isn't doing well and I'm afraid things could get worse soon. He was diagnosed with uveitis about 2 weeks ago. The iris is still inflamed even though we are using the predisone eye drops 3 times a

My cat had similar issues when we first got him. Get a fecal exam done. Bernie had worms when we found out he was felv+, after he was on meds for that, his diarrhea was better but not totally gone. We did interferon and prescription canned food. That helped. I am now back on dry food, but I

It makes me a little upset that research for Felv+ cats has been so wishy washy. I realize it probably all comes down to money and business, but I was also thinking, this disease is sadly a way for shelters to try to control over population of cats. I think its pretty automatic to put felv+ cats
