IN the 1980s, feline leukaemia virus (FeLV) infection was a particular problem in breeding catteries but, as a result of increased awareness and 'test and removal' control policies, it is rarely encountered in this situation today and it is now mainly in non-pedigree cats that the infection is diagnosed. This, the second of two articles on feline infectious diseases, outlines the various clinical manifestations of FeLV-related disease and discusses the diagnostic challenges posed by the virus. The first article (In Practice, May 2000, pp 255-260) provided an update on feline immunodeficiency virus.
