Feline immunodeficiency virus affects the immune system, leaving infected cats susceptible to other infections. The virus is primarily transmitted via bites and scratches from infected cats, and unfortunately there is no cure for FIV.

If your cat goes outside and has potential interactions with other cats, we recommend they be tested for the virus. The FIV test just requires a small sample of blood and can be done in-house. If this test comes back negative, we can then vaccinate against this nasty disease. Vaccination initially requires a course of 3 injections, and then yearly boosters.
