Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is an awful illness. It’s considered fatal, and most often kills kittens. But now, there may be hope.
Susan is the founder of the Bria Fund at Winn, created specifically to raise money for funding FIP studies, and she has good news. During our conversation, Susan describes what legendary veterinary researcher Dr. Niels Pedersen has been working on. It’s fascinating for many reasons, in part, because the same class of drug (called a protease inhibitor) that’s used to treat people with Hepatitis-C or HIV and AIDS seems help kittens with FIP.

Pedersen will speak at the annual Winn Feline Foundation Symposium on June 29 at the The Fairmont Chicago (200 N. Columbus Dr.). Veterinary professionals receive continuing education credits for attending. The public is also invited. If you love cats, you may want to hear Pedersen, have the opportunity to meet him, and hear about FIP. Proceeds benefit the Winn Feline Foundation. The symposium is $35. You can register HERE.
