Weighing in on Winn Feline Foundation FIP Symposium


Share

It’s mind blowing to even think about, a cure for feline infectious peritonitis. It’s really within out grasps, and kittens are actually being cured. I talk on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show about feline infectious peritonitis or FIP with the immediate past president of the Winn Feline Foundation, Dr. Glenn Olah.

This news is reason enough to celebrate, and the Winn Feline Foundation is about to celebrate by bringing the best investigators from around the world to the University of California, Davis for a symposium to discuss what we’ve learned in the past couple of years, November 16 and November 17, Register to attend in person or online, HERE.

Sometime in  1960’s, the complicate illness, called FIP was discovered. And it took decades to fully understand, and associated corona virus, and how SARS and MERS supported more FIP research. From the start, researcher Dr. Niels Pedersen from UC Davis has been studying the disease.

Dr. Olah describes what FIP is. And he explains that its always been considered fatal – ’till now.

Dr. Pedersen discusses the latest, including drugs he’s found to help cats HERE.

Dr. Drew Weigner, president of Winn Feline Foundation, discusses the symposium, PurrSuing FIP and Winning, HERE.

If you have questions want to submit to the experts, send them to FIP@WinnFelineFoundation.org and your question may be chosen and asked at the Symposium.
