LEUKEMIA VIRUS (FeLV)
and YOUR CAT
Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a very important cause of morbidity and mortality in domestic cats. All cats at one point in their life are susceptible to the virus. It is able to replicate in many tissues and causes widespread infection, particularly in areas with a high cat population. Is your cat at risk?Subsequent infection and clinical signs are variable and include a variety of malignancies and immunosuppressive diseases. Clinical manifestation of FeLV depends on several viral and host factors. Early diagnosis of the virus is important to increase the chances that your cat will survive the infection. Treatment will not cure FeLV, but you can slow the progression of the disease, and eliminate some clinical signs to improve the quality of your cat's life.
