So Oliver goes in for his yearly vaccs next Monday afternoon.... not really a big deal, I just know he wont be a happy camper after a car trip and 5 injections.... my question is this - anyone have a cost estimate for the second, more conclusive FIV test? I received Oliver from a friend who had rescued him as a stray last fall... I was told when she gave him to me that he is FIV+... I never asked which tests were done to determine this and am thinking about getting that second test done (I cant pull the name of it from my brain right now, but those of you in the know will understand what I mean).... I know this is gonna be a pretty costly trip just because of all the meds he'll be getting, so I'm trying to figure out how much more it would be to get this test. I'm also going to see if his old charts ever did get transferred to my name (I had asked them to do it, but don't know if they did) so we can see what tests were actually done on him... I'm thinking if they only did the one, common, test that he may be testing false positive if he had been owned before and vaccinated against the disease, although I can definitely see how he could have picked it up as a stray.... any insight is welcomed! thanks!
