About The Cornell Feline Health Center

The Cornell Feline Health Center offers a wealth of knowledge for cat owners. Their services make a tremendous contribution to the health and well being of cats throughout the world.

The Center is located at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. In case you don't know, Cornell is one of the most innovative universities in the world.

Founded in 1865, Cornell issued the first university degree in veterinary medicine.

As of this writing, Cornell's College of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary college in the state of New York accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education (COE).

The Cornell Feline Health Center is a "veterinary medical specialty center devoted to improving the health and well-being of cats everywhere." Their web site, of course, is a great source of information for cat lovers everywhere.

Focused on finding ways to prevent and cure feline illnesses, as well as promoting public awarenss of feline issues, they conduct and sponsor "breakthrough feline health studies."

In addition, the Cornell University Hospital for Animals treats thousands of animals each year. As a leading veterinary teaching hospital, with state of the art equipment, the hospital complements the work done by the Feline Health Center.

This combination of research facilities, academic excellence, high-tech equipment, and practical implementation of techniques on thousands of animal patients in the real world puts Cornell in a unique position to gather data on cat health issues.

The information that the Center gathers is then passed on to both cat health practicioners, and the cat owning public. The Center is also active in assisting veterinarians when new or unknown feline diseases are discovered.

The Cornell Feline Health Center provides a number of additional resources and services to cat owners on feline health and pet loss. The most notable of these resources are probably their Client Information Brochures, the pet loss support line, and the Cornell Book of Cats.

Their web site also offers the Dr. Louis J. Camuti Memorial Feline Consultation Service at 1-800-KITTY-DR. Dr. Camuti (1894-1981) was the first veterinarian in the United States to focus his practice solely on cats, and is known as "THE CAT DOCTOR."

Dr. Camuti made housecalls, which prompted the title of his book, All My Patients are Under the Bed.

The service named after him allows cat owners to receive phone consultations from veterinarians on specific issues. If you've got a unique health issue with your cat, you can get expert advice.
