Feline Leukemia Virus
Feline leukemia is a disease that spreads through urine, nose discharge and saliva. Cats can catch the disease through bites, sharing food, water bowls and litter boxes, and from grooming eachother. Mother cats can pass the disease along to their kittens, and kittens are more likely to contract the disease than adult cats.
Some cats will immediately become
ill upon contracting the virus. In other cats, symptoms of the disease will not manifest for several weeks or even years. Feline leukemia can result in a number of conditions, but ultimately will attack the immune system and lead to bone marrow failure. Any illness can be a sign of feline leukemia.
Although there is no cure for feline leukemia, the disease is easily preventable. Keeping cats indoors, restricting exposure to other cats, maintaining a clean living environment and ensuring your cat is vaccinated can all help prevent feline leukemia.please help my cat .he is the only one family member who was alive .
