Another companion animal malignancy thought to be associated with inflammation is vaccineassociated feline sarcoma (VAFS).

38-40 The cat has both endogenous and exogenous retroviruses. The endogenous retroviruses generally are considered nonpathogenic, are present in the host DNA, and are passed from generation to generation genetically, as are other chromosomal genes. The exogenous retroviruses include both pathogenic and nonpathogenic viruses and are passed horizontally and vertically between cats. 43 The ancestral source of other retroviruses is unknown. The three pathogenic retroviruses of clinical importance are FeLV, FIV, and, in rare cases, FeSV.
