Hi Dr Hohenhaus,

Just another few websites that I suspect you would also recommend:

American Association of Feline Practitioners
http://www.catvets.com/
Lots of great info including various Guidelines written by some of the top experts ... e.g. Vaccination Guidelines (currently in the process of being updated), Retrovirus Guidelines, Senior Care Guidelines, Life Stages Guidelines, Bartonella, etc.

Veterinary Partner
http://www.veterinarypartner.com/
A great site for pet owners run by VIN (Veterinary Information Network ... which is for vets only) which gives good info on many pet health issues and medications.

American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM)
http://www.acvim.org
Besides being able to look for board certified specialists in a specific geographical area, the site has lots of good info including a section on "Consensus Statement" on various health issues.

Partners in Animal Health
http://partnersah.vet.cornell.edu/pet
I think this is a part of the Cornell Univ Feline Health Center and has very helpful videos for pet owners.
