Overview

Leucogen is a veterinary vaccine used in cats from eight weeks of age to protect them against feline leukaemia. Feline leukaemia is an infectious disease of cats which affects the immune system and is caused by the feline leukaemia virus (FeLV). Signs of the disease can include loss of appetite, weight loss, poor fur condition, fever, pale gums and diarrhoea; cats persistently infected with the virus may spread it to other cats. The vaccine is used to prevent the disease signs and persistent viraemia (the presence of FeLV in the blood).

The medicine contains a protein from the outer layer of FeLV.
