If you own a cat like the Turkish Angora or other feline breed then you may want to talk with your vet about common health conditions that can affect felines. For instance, there is a virus known as FeLV or the Feline Leukemia Virus. In general, FeLV is the second largest cause of death among cats with trauma being first. The virus can cause anemia or lymphoma as well as suppress their immune system making them highly susceptible to deadly infections. Although the virus is a leading cause of death, it doesn’t have to be. When cats are vaccinated they have a stronger chance of resisting the deadly virus. In fact, research has found that 70% of cats that came in contact with FeLV were able to either resist the infection or overcome it on their own. FeLV affects cats only.
