How to Prevent your Grey Tabby from getting FeLV

There is no cure for the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV); however, there are several ways to help keep your Grey Tabby from contacting the virus. For instance, there are vaccines available to help your cat fight the virus should he get it. You can also protect your cat by keeping him indoors. FeLV can be spread through saliva, feces, and blood. Cats often groom one another or get into fights with one another when outdoors. Keeping your cat indoors lowers the chances of coming in contact with an infected cat. In addition, if your Grey Tabby already has FeLV, you can help him live a somewhat healthy life by keeping him away from other cats. Cats may carry illnesses or other diseases that can harm an FeLV infected cat because the FeLV virus weakens the immune system. Your veterinary clinic Colorado Springs, CO may suggest that your FeLV cat be your only cat. Learn more here.
