Feline Leukemia is Deadly and Contagious

Sunday, March 21, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

If you’re a cat owner, you would cringe if your pet was diagnosed with feline leukemia. This viral disease is often fatal. It could leave it’s victims in such a debilitated state that they die of secondary infections or related illnesses such as kidney diseases, blood disorders or cancer. Feline Leukemia is highly contagious and can be spread through saliva, nasal secretions, urine and feces. ┬áCats can become infected through bite wounds or social grooming. Currently, there’s no cure for feline leukemia. The best preventative measure that you could take is to have your cat tested and then vaccinated for the disease. ┬áThe other option is to keep him indoors where he could not become infected from other infected cats. Keep him safe and occupied with lots of cat toys and love.

Remember, your pets count!
