Typical management strategies for cat-origin allergies in humans have included avoiding contact with cats or, at the very least, spending less time with them. Cat allergies can be a barrier to cat ownership and potentially lead to rehoming or relinquishment. The landmark study and science has identified a new approach to reducing cat allergens in a safe and accessible way, giving people and cats a chance to stay closer together.

This is a one-hour live webinar to inform the veterinary profession of a feline-friendly breakthrough in the reduction of cat allergens. A recording and resources will be made available post-event.
