Please join Winn Feline Foundation's 40th Annual Symposium on June 28th, 2018 with our speaker, Katie Tolbert, DVM, PhD, DACVIM from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.
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. foetusis such a concern for catteries and shelters. She will also share the results of her Winn-sponsored research investigating therapies for the treatment gastrointestinal ulceration in cats.
