The Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) causes havoc with the immune system and can make your cat very ill. She will be prone to flu-like fevers and discomfort and may experience neurological symptoms. You can treat the underlying infections and symptoms but FeLV is incurable. Most cats dies within two years of contracting FeLV. FeLV is transmitted through the bodily fluids of an infected cat. Transmission usually occurs when fighting or grooming with infected cats. Keeping your cat inside and away from other cats is helpful but fortunately there is also a vaccination to protect your cat from FeLV. Get your cat vaccinated while she is young. Keep up on any booster shots as recommended. Your cat may be a little feverish after inoculation and she may experience soreness at the injection site. Your cat will need periodic blood tests to ensure that she is protected. Schedule an appointment with your Springdale, ON veterinary clinic.
