Review: The Feline Health Center at Cornell University College of Veterinary MedicineCancer Websites, Pet Cancer Websites — By nygal on April 12, 2010 at 5:12 am
The Feline Health Center is a veterinary medical specialty center devoted to improving the health and well-being of cats everywhere by:
• Finding ways of preventing and curing diseases of cats by conducting and sponsoring breakthrough feline health studies
• Educating veterinarians and cat owners about feline health by providing timely medical information and by promoting public understanding and awareness of feline issues
• Aiding veterinarians when new or unknown feline diseases occur.
The concept of a feline medical specialty center began in 1973 as part of a long-range planning effort at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. In reviewing the present and anticipated future of veterinary medicine as it related to the cat, it was obvious that a concerted effort would be required to investigate the many serious diseases of cats. The Board of Trustees of Cornell University approved the formation of the center in 1974.
