Can cat vitamins really help prevent FeLV and FIV in cats?

Can cat vitamins really help prevent FeLV and FIV in cats? Feline Leukemia Virus or FeLV is contagious and is passed by direct cat to cat contact, such as in mutual grooming or bite wounds. Not all cats who contact it die from the disease. Some fight it off and recover and some become carriers of the virus. FeLV suppresses a cat’s immune system, allowing other diseases to make the cat extremely sick. It can also cause lymphatic cancer.

Cat Vitamins FeLV

A small number of cats contract FeLV and never get sick, living a normal life span. This is because their immune system fights off the active infection.

In every one of the above examples it is so very vital for cat health, that a cat get daily vitamins. Supplements of cat vitamins and minerals keep the immune system strong and this will (1) prevent cats from becoming infected because they fight off the disease (2) keep carriers of the virus healthy and finally (3) help cats with active cat FeLV to boost their immune system, stay healthy and not get a fatal illness or cancer.

FIV or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus does not usually progress to the same kind of debilitating life threatening condition as with human AIDS. It’s commonly transmitted through cat fights that result in a bite wound and so you see it more often in stray cats. Some cats get it and just fight it off. If your kitten tests positive for FIV you should retest again for the second test will often be normal.

FIV also suppresses the immune system. Cats that succumb to FIV can get very sick with very low white cell counts.

Once again, it’s just so important to supplement your cat with healthy cat vitamins and minerals to help him fight off yet another common cat virus.

I find this really helpful and interesting. I didn’t know that this kind of disease preventing vitamin was available until I read all of this.

My wife takes in cats to hold until they are adopted and she wants to start all the cats on this to help prevent disease and so they arrive in their new home healthy and happy.

Thank you!
