Join us for our upcoming webinar as we talk about Feline Herpesvirus-1 infection in cats. During the webinar, Dr. Jingwen Lou will discuss the basis of FHV-1 pathogenesis, especially related to the ocular region, and provide practical advice on how to deal with feline conjunctivitis that you often encounter clinically. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from a leading expert in the field and ask questions.

About the webinar:

90% of cats will be exposed to feline herpesvirus over their lifetime. All cats can catch the feline herpes virus, but kittens who have not been vaccinated are particularly susceptible to catching the virus. Feline herpes is a highly contagious virus that can quickly be passed between cats causing feline rhinotracheitis. Together with feline calicivirus, it is one of the most common causes of conjunctivitis and cat flu.

In this webinar, you will learn:
1. Virus characteristics and epidemiology of FHV-1
2. Pathogenesis of FHV-1 disease
3. Ocular manifestations of FHV-1
4. Polymerase chain reaction test for FHV-1
5. A review of antiviral drugs and other compounds with activity against FHV-1
