No evidence that Fel-O-Vax prevents FIV infection in cats in New Zealand

Recently published research funded by Healthy Pets New Zealand has shown that the Fel-O-Vax FIV vaccine against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) does not prevent infection with the virus in NZ. Given the lack of significant protection against FIV infection and the uncertainty regarding whether or not FIV infection causes disease, there is currently little scientific evidence supporting the use of this vaccine in New Zealand.
