Currently we don't do routine blood tests. Gillian I was hoping you could let me know how much would you say in general this adds to your costs and roughly what percentage of cats showing no sign of illness do come back with a positive result?
Sorry, only just seen this
Not sure how much the blood testing costs us - I think the Trust buys the actual kits that the vets use, will try and find out how much they are. I would say we've had around 4 FIV+ over the last year (including my FIV+ foster, Chico). None, as far as I'm aware, showed any signs of illness - we rehomed 3, and Chico is still with me (age 10 plus and healthy
). Don't know about FeLV, will ask about that.
