Going “Retro” is Not Good for Cats!

catYou might enjoy a night out listening to the latest in “retro” music, but your cats should avoid “going retro” at all costs!   Retroviral diseases, such as Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, are more common than most pet owners realize and are truly threats to your cat’s well-being.   Fortunately, through testing protocols and lifestyle choices, owners can help keep their feline friends safe from these deadly diseases.

Retroviruses like Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) can be devastating to your cat. More frightening, many cat owners are unaware of these two significant and very deadly feline diseases.
