How long can a FeLV cat live?
Although a diagnosis of FeLV can be emotionally devastating, it is important to realize that cats with FeLV can live normal lives for prolonged periods of time. The median survival time for cats after FeLV is diagnosed is 2.
How accurate is FeLV SNAP test?
The SNAP FIV/FeLV Combo Test generated zero false-positive results. For instance, a test with 95% specificity would, on average, falsely identify 5 out of 100 healthy cats as infected. This has increasing importance when screening for a disease that has a low prevalence in the population.
What happens if a cat tests positive for feline leukemia?
However, testing positive just means that the virus is circulating in the cat's blood; it does not mean that the cat will be permanently infected. It is possible for them to fight off the infection. To find out if it is a persistent infection, an IFA test can be sent to a lab.
Can a cat have both FIV and FeLV?
Ambrose: “Cats can be at risk for both FeLV and FIV if they live in a household with other cats that are known to be infected or have an unknown infection status.
Is FeLV sexually transmitted?
As opposed to HIV, the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is not a sexually transmitted disease. Therefore, even spayed and neutered cats can contract feline AIDS without the precondition of having mated with another cat. These viral diseases have the same biological behavior in cats as HIV does in humans.
