Exploring new therapies for a common cause of feline infectious diarrhea
Presented by: Katie Tolbert, DVM, PhD, DACVIM; University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine
Trichomonosis is a rapidly emerging infectious disease of cats that is
caused by the parasite, Tritrichomonas foetus. Unfortunately, little is
understood about how this parasite causes disease and what methods
can be used to treat it. Dr. Tolbert will discuss why infectious diarrhea
such as that caused by T. foetus is such a concern for catteries and
shelters. She will also share the results of her Winn-sponsored research
investigating therapies for treating gastrointestinal ulceration in cats.

Feline Leukemia Virus – past, present and perpetually perplexing
Presented by: Melissa Beall, DVM, PhD; IDEXX Laboratories, Inc., Portland, ME
Despite its discovery over 50 years ago, the feline leukemia virus (FeLV)
continues to challenge our thinking about the nature of the disease
and our ability to diagnose the infection. Testing, vaccination, and
segregating progressively infected cats remain effective practices to
help control the spread of the disease. Results of this new research are
helping to inform improvements in medical decisions and long-term
patient care.
Question and answer discussion to follow final session.
