Is there really no cure or treatment for Feline Leukemia (FeLV/cat leukemia)? :-(((?
- J CLv 74 years agoBest Answer
No, there is not, although there are web sites who will take your money for products claiming to cure it. Some cats can live a while with it, but they are very susceptible to illnesses, and something as simple as an upper respiratory infection can get bad enough to kill them. There is no cure, and not really any reliable prevention either. The vaccine is at best 80% effective - and some studies put it at even less than that. It's also extremely contagious, and a cat with it can infect every other cat it comes into contact with.

No, not yet, unfortunately. There's a vaccine to keep cats from getting it if they're exposed, but no cure.

There's only one cure, to put the poor thing to sleep. I know it will hurt but as the Buddhists say, cause no suffering.
