Prevalence of feline leukaemia virus and antibodies to feline immunodeficiency virus and feline coronavirus in stray cats sent to an RSPCA hospital



Prevalence of feline leukaemia virus and antibodies to feline immunodeficiency virus and feline coronavirus in stray cats sent to an RSPCA hospital



Veterinary Record 150(20): 621-625



A total of 517 stray cats at an RSPCA veterinary hospital were tested for feline leukaemia virus (FeLV), feline coronavirus (FCov) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). The cats were tested between August and December 1997, and they came from Birmingham, UK and its surrounding suburbs. The prevalence of FeLV was 3.5% in all the cats, 1.4% in healthy cats and 6.9% in sick cats. FeLV positivity was associated only with disease of non-traumatic origin.
