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.

Dr. Stephanie Janeczko received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Biotechnology from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2000 and her DVM from Cornell University in 2004. Following graduation, Dr. Janeczko spent time in general small animal practice, where she worked with cats, dogs, and small mammals. Her experiences dealing with the animals from shelters and rescue groups strengthened her interest in the field of shelter medicine, and in 2006 Dr. Janeczko became the first resident in Shelter Medicine at Cornell University. Her time was divided between seeing cases through the Cornell University Hospital for Animals and working directly with shelters, particularly those surrounding Ithaca, New York. While a resident, she earned a Master's degree in Epidemiology and completed her Shelter Medicine residency in 2009. Dr. Janeczko served as both Medical Director and Interim Director of Operations for New York City Animal Care and Control (AC&C). In the summer of 2011, Dr. Stephanie Janeczko stepped down from her position at AC&C to accept a position with the ASPCA as the Senior Director of Community Outreach, Shelter Medicine Programs. She also continues to serve as a consultant to the Shelter Medicine Program.
