Understanding Feline Leukemia

Can people or dogs get FeLV?

No. FeLV is species-specific to cats and can only be transmitted from cat to cat; humans, dogs, and all other species of animals besides cats can not become infected with Feline Leukemia. FeLV positive cats can live with other animals, however, because of the contagious nature of the virus, should not live with FeLV negative cats.
