Georgetta, Here are more links that I could find on when to test, somewhat contradictory. Since the Elisa looks for antigens, not antibodies, you can test as young as you like without worrying about maternal antibodies interfering. But, since the virus needs some time to incubate (I'm seeing

You did what you thought was the right thing for Cheshire and that is what counts. With multiple problems is is hard to get them stable enough for effective treatments. I've had cats get super stressed out going to the vet and others that don't mind at all. If you hadn't tried to help her
