The Winn Feline Foundation has been providing continuing education on cutting edge feline health issues to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, cat fanciers and cat lovers for 36 years in their annual symposium. This year’s is June 26 in New Orleans, from 4 to 6 p.m.and there are still a pawful of spaces remaining if you want to sign up.

Check out this fab lineup of speakers, including:

Famed veterinary cardiologist Dr. Philip Fox of the Animal Medical Center, New York City on: “New Perspectives on Survival: Comparison of Healthy Cats and Cats With HCM (feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy)  – A Global Study.”

Dr. Beth Licitra of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine on feline infectious peritonitis (FIP): “Pathogenesis of Feline Coronavirus is Linked to Mutation of a Critical Viral Activation Site”

If you’re interested, head to the Symposium. You’ll have a chance to learn, and dollars raised to go right back into cat health studies. The Symposium is at the Sheraton New Orleans, 500 Canal St. in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Registration Fee (includes light snacks with cash bar) is only $30. You can still register HERE, despite what the website says about an earlier deadline because the room’s been expanding so there is space for some more for folks. Following the presentations there will be time for Q&A’s too!
