New study uncovers FeLV test risksMost accurate point-of-care test identified
More than 5 million cats across the U.S. are affected by feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), placing them at risk for disease and premature death. These are preventable, contagious retroviruses. Identifying and segregating infected cats is the key to controlling the spread of disease. As a result, positive cats may be euthanized based upon the results of a pet-side test.
