The Winn Feline Foundation “is a non-profit organization established in 1968 that supports studies about cat health. Projects funded by Winn have provided information that is used every day in veterinary medicine to treat cat diseases.”
This year’s grant-funded studies include feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or feline HCM, and feline infectious peritonitis, or FIP, as well as ten other health issues. Visit the Winn Feline Health website for more information about these studies and other past studies whose findings are used in veterinary medicine today at http://www.winnfelinehealth.org, or go straight to the press release about this year’s grants at http://www.winnfelinehealth.org/Pages/HEALTH_STUDY_GRANTS_2009_Media_Final.pdf.
