Please join us at the 37th annual Winn Feline Foundation Symposium in Toronto on July 2, 2015. Steve Dale, internationally known radio personality and Master of Ceremonies, introduces Dr. Jody Gookin, DVM, PhD, DACVIM and Associate Professor from North Carolina State University.
Dr. Gookin presents "Understanding the probiotic versus pathogenic role of gut bacteria in kittens with diarrhea".She will cover her Winn sponsored research into the role of intestinal bacteria, specifically enterococci and pathogenic E. coli, in causing diarrhea and diarrhea-associated death in kittens. Discussion will include the discovery of the role these bacteria play in health and disease in kittens. Collaboration among several organizations has led to a better understanding of the bacteria both through modeling the pathogenic effects of the bacteria in the laboratory and case studies in kittens in foster or shelter care. She will also review the progress research has made in developing tests and treatment approaches for such critical infections.
