Feline Leukemia Testing: One and Done for Everyone
Recorded On: 12/15/2021
Presented by Monica Frenden-Tarant and Dr. Julie Levy
In 2020, the AAFP released new retrovirus testing guidelines that recommend one quality point of care test then moving forward with a live-outcome pathway. In accordance, Austin Pets Alive!, home of the most robust FeLV adoption program in the world, changed its FeLV testing protocols. No more serum testing. No more "confirmation" testing. What does this mean in practice, how do we pathway plan for cats with different diagnoses, and why is this the new recommendation? Join Monica Frenden-Tarant and Dr. Julie Levy as they break down the latest guidelines and tell you everything you need to know about testing for feline leukemia.
