What is FeLV?

FeLV stands for “Feline Leukemia Virus”. It is a contagious viral disease that weakens and suppresses a cat’s immune system, making FeLV positive cats more susceptible to common health issues, such as upper respiratory infections, dental disease, etc. In the United States, approximately 2-3% of the cat population will test positive for Feline Leukemia.
