FeLV is a retrovirus that causes the most common fatal disease in cats. Large amounts of virus are excreted in FeLV-infected cat saliva. Transmission of virus is mainly through cat fights, biting and/or mutual grooming. FeLV could also be transmitted vertically during pregnancy, delivery, or postpartum. Clinical signs of the disease vary widely, including loss of appetite, fever, weight loss, pale mucous membranes and enlarged lymph nodes.
