Permanent URI for this community

The Cornell Feline Health Center at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1974 as the Cornell Feline Research Laboratory but changed to its present name in 1981. It is a small, independently funded center whose mission is to improve the health and welfare of cats everywhere by: Finding ways of preventing and curing diseases of cats by conducting and sponsoring breakthrough feline health research studies; Educating veterinarians and cat owners about feline health by providing timely medical information; Promoting public understanding and awareness of feline issues, and Aiding veterinarians when new or unknown diseases occur. Yearly activities are summarized with donor recognition in its Annual Report.

In addition to funding scientific research and distributing information related to feline health, the Center offers the Dr. Louis J. Camuti Memorial Feline Consultation and Diagnostic Service providing pet owners with advice from consulting veterinarians and behavior experts based on the most current information available for feline health care. It also sponsors the annual Fred Scott Feline Symposium for feline veterinarians.
