Secondly, feline Aids
is a highly species-specific virus that only infects felines and is not transferable to people or other species.
We want to stress that our findings do not mean that the feline AIDS
virus infects humans, but rather that the cat virus resembles the human virus sufficiently so that this cross-reaction can be observed," said Jay Levy, professor of medicine at University of California, San Francisco.
London, Sept 12 (ANI): Scientists have developed glow in the dark cats with intrinsic immunity to the feline AIDS
virus to help combat the disease in cats and humans.
A Feline AIDS
works in the same way in cats as human AIDS does in people, weakening their immune systems and exposing the patient to infection.
The blood test ruled out both feline AIDS
and leukemia - an enormous relief for the Dumolts, who left with a vial of antibiotics and a request from Dr.
A Neutering offers health benefits to cats, such as preventing cancer of the womb in females and reducing the risk of catching feline AIDS
(FIV) in males.
The $175 covers first and second distemper shots and deworming, a physical, rabies shot, a combo test to ensure the cat does not have feline AIDS
or leukemia, and neutering/spaying.
