FELINE LEUKEMIA TEST@HOME is a simple, quick, accurate, and easy at home alternative to cat owners taking their cats to a veterinarian for a hard to get blood sample. Instead, cat owners simply collect a small amount of saliva on a swab and mail the sample to our veterinary lab. Veterinarians have used saliva/tear testing for years. Our vet techs use the same ELISA test that other veterinarians use which is manufactured by major USA pharmaceutical companies. These kits are used by veterinarians. Most veterinarians realize that only 7% of cats are tested for this life threatening disease because of cat owners concerns about the stress of an IV blood test, the stress of the car ride to the cat and the owner, damage to the car and cat owner, and the $90-150 cost of going to a clinic. The accuracy of this saliva test is equal to or better than the recently released human HIV saliva test. The virus is similar.
Finally, a positive saliva test is more significant since it indicates a more advanced stage of FeLV. Compare these advantages: simple to do–just moisten a swab in the cat’s mouth, send the sample to our veterinary lab; convenient–no trips to your veterinarian; much less stress to you or your cat; no damage to the car or pet owner; accurate veterinary lab results; fast results-we process the test and call you within 24 hours of receipt; written results are sent via email or fax; save time and money-50% less with no office fee and lower cost of the test plus you do not have to clean up after the trip.
