I had a 7 year old male cat who contracted a respitory infection. I took him to the vet, and they gave him antibiotics and told me he would be sent home with some for a 4 day treatment. They asked if he had been aids/lukemia tested, and I said no. So, they tested him and his results were positive. So, I had him put down. I had all three of my cats vacinated when they were neutered, but do not have them vacinated annually. So, now they tell me I need to have my other two boys tested, and if they have it, I should do the right thing and put them down too. They arent ill at all (one is 2 one is 4). I dont know what to do. Part of me says, if theyre not sick, why should I have them tested, but part of me wants to know. But if there is no treatment for feline aids, what would the point be except to know that they were carriers. Im not insensitive, but Im also not rich and my boys seem so healthy. what should i do? Im so upset...
