Shelters often perform FeLV/FIV tests to determine if these retroviruses are present within the cats that they care for. Dr. Stephanie Janeczko, Senior Director of Community Outreach Shelter Medicine Programs for the ASPCA, will discuss indications and proper technique for test performance as well as interpretation of results and implications for cats who test positive. This presentation is part of the 2013 ASPCA/Maddie's® Shelter Medicine Conference.
