Are these normally just inaccurate as far as false positives go? Are there ever 
any false negatives?

Re: [Felvtalk] Idexx combo tests

2012-01-04 Thread Sharyl
I don't know if you would call it a false negative.  It is possible for a cat 
to be so recently exposed to the FeLV virus that it will not show up on the 
test.  That's why many recommend retesting a few weeks later.

Yes, it can be that the antibodies aren't yet shoeing up.that's why it is
recommended that a rescued animal be kept for a certain time, way from
others, and retested.  Except, it's not always possible when shelters and
small rescue groups are filled and would like to find homes asap.
