Idexx Unveils Online Feline Disease Map

A new online feline disease map has been unveiled by Idexx Laboratories Inc.

As part of its new campaign to promote feline wellness, Idexx Laboratories Inc. of Westbrook, Maine, yesterday launched an interactive feline disease prevalence map at www.kittytest.com.

As the centerpiece of its campaign, the map will allow cat owners and veterinarians to determine the prevalence of three common diseases – feline heartworm, feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) – on a state and county basis.

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 had been confirmed. That information might change a veterinarian’s disease testing practices, the company said.

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.
