My cat has FeLV symptoms. What can I do?
Although we do not have ways to stop the disease, we can slow its progress by treating specific symptoms. Veterinarians can control secondary infections with antibiotics, anemia with blood transfusions, and cancers with chemotherapy. Unfortunately, repeated treatment is expensive and does not completely alleviate a cat's suffering. Instead of prolonging the inevitable, many owners of actively infected cats opt for euthanasia.
