Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)

Cats with FIV can live long, healthy lives if taken care of properly.  Routine veterinary check-ups and keeping FIV cats indoors are key.  

The following information was prepared by the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the Cornell Feline Health Center, Cornell University…


FIV Facts:

The Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years.

•FIV is a cat-only disease and cannot be spread to humans or other non-feline animals. 

•FIV cats most often live long, healthy, and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all. 

•FIV is not easily passed between cats. It cannot be spread casually in litter boxes, water and food bowls, or when snuggling and playing. It is rarely spread from a mother to her kittens. 

•The virus can be spread through blood transfusions, badly infected gums, or serious, penetrating bite wounds. (Bite wounds of this kind are extremely rare, except in free-roaming, unneutered tomcats.)

•A neutered cat, in a home, is extremely unlikely to infect other cats, if properly introduced.

•FIV-positive cats should be kept as healthy as possible. Keep them indoors and free from stress, feed them a high-quality diet, keep and treat any secondary problems as soon as they arise.
