Idexx Unveils Online Feline Disease Map

Posted: Monday, March 2, 2009

As part of its new campaign to promote feline wellness, Idexx Laboratories Inc. of Westbrook, Maine, in January launched an interactive feline-disease prevalence map.

The centerpiece of its campaign, the map will allow cat owners and veterinarians to determine the prevalence of three common diseases on a state and county basis.

The three diseases are feline heartworm, feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).

Idexx believes the map will help cat owners better understand their cats’ risk levels for the diseases, while providing veterinarians local and national perspective on how many cases have been confirmed. That information might change a veterinarian’s disease testing practices, the company stated.

The results shown are compiled from Idexx Reference Laboratories test results, test results from its in-clinic Idexx VetLab Station systems from thousands of veterinary practices, and other prevalence studies, the company reported. <HOME>
