Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)

Shadow is always getting into cat fights!  When Shadow was offered free testing for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) on his last visit to the Veterinary Centre Waimate his owners jumped at the chance.  They understood that cat fights are the most common cause of FIV spread.  The test was quick and easy, a small blood sample was taken, and a result was available in just ten minutes.  In good news Shadow didn't have FIV and his owners elected to vaccinate him in order to protect the fighting Shadow from a potentially fatal disease.
