Sad but true - too many cats (mostly they are young kittens, just little babies) who succumb to Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). I suggest if this disease occurred that often in dogs we would have somehow found a solution to this. Finally, due to funding from the Winn Feline Foundation and others, we are headed in the right direction.
Two of the most renown researchers will speak at the 2011 Winn Feline Symposium, June 23 in Reston, VA. Both Dr. Niels Pedersen and Dr. Al Legendre will disclose what they've learned over the past few years. Register for the symposium while you can (spaces will fill up). If watching this video doesn't break your heart.
