Winn Feline Foundation's Executive Director, Dr. Vicki Thayer, interviews a currently funded researcher, Dr. Katie Tolbert of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, about a protozoal organism called Tritrichomonas foetus that causes chronic diarrhea in cats.
Dr. Tolbert describes her two ongoing studies on this disease and how this research might provide answers on diagnosing and possibly preventing this frustrating condition in cats.
She also follows up with her plans for future research she believes would be valuable for improving cat's lives and she hopes that Winn will be able to fund in future years.
The interview was conducted after Dr. Tolbert spoke at the American Animal Hospital Conference in Austin, TX for the Winn Feline Foundation sponsored CE track.
