Feline Leukemia Testing: FeLV Tests for New Cats and Environments

Most veterinary hospitals are equipped for feline leukemia virus (FeLV) testing. The test is well worth the money and is used to diagnose FeLV-related illnesses, detect subclinical infections, and identify FeLV infections in multicat households (and catteries). It is highly advisable to test any cat or kitten before introducing him or her into a new home. Cats and kittens should also be tested for feline leukemia before vaccinations are given.


In order to test for feline leukemia, a small amount of blood is taken from the cat.

Testing for feline leukemia is safe and inexpensive. Due to the nature of the disease, all cats should be tested.
