panleukopenia- how long to wait?
Recently I purchased a little calico kitten. She got sick and ended up haveing panleukopenia. Sadly she died. We only had her for a week.
I am interested in getting another cat, but I am not sure as of how long to wait till the disease is gone. We cleaned everything that was cleanable, IE blanket and cat toys she played with were thrown away. Things like the couch and rug werent cleaned though with clorox or the like though.
The vet had some conflicting information on how long to wait. First it was a few weeks, then three months, and then six month. Ive asked other people who said that if the animal was vacinated it would be fine, but arent kittens not fully vacinated untill they have both shots?
I would like to get two kittens this time so that they are not lonely, though I do have two older cats. If we were to wait the six months, there would be no kittens left, as that would be late december, early January.
I would appreciate what you all have to say. I dont want to get the cats then have them get the same disease and suffer from it.
