Winn Feline Foundation
Feline herpesvirus-1 typically causes respiratory disease in cats; however, chronic recurrent infections can cause severe eye disease often leading to blindness. Currently there is no effective treatment for these chronic cases.

No increase in prospective veterinary students, but with 3 additional schools, applications rise
DVM360 MAGAZINE via dvm360.com
The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges says the 7.5 percent increase in applications for admission to veterinary school this year was likely due to the addition of three colleges of veterinary medicine to the Veterinary Medical College Application Service system — a centralized application portal created by AAVMC in 1995 and utilized by most U.S. veterinary schools. Ross University in St. Kitts, Midwestern College of Veterinary Medicine in Glendale, Ariz., and Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine in Harrogate, Tenn., are all enrolling their inaugural classes. The AAVMC says that because Ross admits three classes per year, there was a net increase of five new programs participating in VMCAS.
