FIV & FeLV Sample Observation for Cat Owners
Veterinary & Aquatic Services Department, Drs. Foster & Smith

The American Association of Feline Practitioners has designed a form (see below) that cat owners can fill out and present to their veterinarians. This will help their veterinarians determine what testing for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) may be necessary.
