Ups and Downs of FIP in Cats; Sleeping with Your Dog; Rats and the Pandemic, all on WGN Radio

Listen HERE to this weeks standout WGN Radio show Steve Dale’s Pet World because my first guest is Dr. Julie Levy, Fran Marino Professor of Shelter Medicine Education at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, Maddie’s Shelter Medicine Program. Dr. Levy has her name of more cat health studies than there is catnip on the planet. Her passion for cats is clear, and these days her frustration. Through the Every Cat Health Foundation (formerly Winn Feline Foundation) and many years of funded studies, a disease call feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) has been figured out (yes it took years to even understand this coronavirus causing illness), and today an actual treatment. As a result this once automatically fatal disease is now officially considered treatable. This was announced at a symposium in 2019 hosted by University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and Winn Feline Foundation, and the most passionate researcher of FIP of all, Dr. Niels Pedersen, professor emeritus at UC Davis.
