Viral Testing for Cats

If your new kitten or cat has been a stray, was adopted from an animal shelter or will be in contact with other cats, we HIGHLY recommend screening for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). These viral infections are contagious and once a cat is infected, these diseases are usually fatal.

The only sure way to know whether your cat or kitten has been exposed to either virus is to test them using the FeLV/FIV test available at your veterinarian hospital. This is a simple test with results in 15 minutes and requires only three drops of blood. We recommend having your new cat tested prior to bringing it home if you have other cats in your household.

Your veterinarian can share more information on these diseases if you have questions.
