The airlines just keep shooting themselves in the foot animals suffer! If only they would realize that there is this HUGE market out there for travelers who want to travel with their pet. Why not take a couple of flights a week on major routes have a couple of planes where animals of all sizes

I have a kitten that tested positive on her in-house ELISA test. I think I'm going to do the ELISA test that is sent out to the lab next. Does anyone know if antibiotics like Clavamox would affect the outcome of the test? I wouldn't think so but you never know. “I am not interested to know

I came across this site, having just been informed by the vet that the abandoned kitten I took in three weeks ago. Before I took it to the vet,  I have been keeping it in a separate room but admit that since it seemed so healthy I let it out for little walks.  I have 4 cats over 12 years old.

If the kitten is healthy, do not put it down. FeLV cats can live good lives. My Tigger is almost 5 now. Had been healthy for the whole time, until last month when he developed stomach cancer. He is still here, doing fine now. Also, have 5 other cats. had them vaccinated, and to this day, none

My Husband I are in a similar position. We just adopted a kitten from the pound who had been feral before that and she ended up being FeLV+. We have two other cats and they hadn't had any other contact before the positive test and since the test we have continued to keep them separated.

You've come to the right place! Many of us do mix pos w. neg-my own pos is 13+ years old I got her as a kitten. She tested neg as a very young kitten but then tested pos years later. By that point, she'd been around my other cats so I just decided to vaccinate them for felv and mix. Nobody

This kitty still has a good chance of clearing the virus. I would retest again in 30 to 90 days. If it is positive again, then do an IFA test. I would not worry at all that it has casual contact with your other cats. In order for your other cats to contract FeLV, they would have to groom each

Like everyone else has said, ALWAYS ALWAYS re-test. Never rely on one positive ELISA test. It can show a false positive but even if it's not a false positive it is possible the cat can extinguish, meaning totally get rid of, the virus. I would do an IFA test like someone else mentioned. It
