Reimagining the Power of Feline Nutrition: Managing Cat Allergens

Welcome to our virtual symposium. In veterinary medicine, our focus is primarily on the animals but we also recognise the benefits that come from a close bond between a pet and their owner.

With one in five adults worldwide suffering from sensitivities to cat allergens (Bousquet et al., 2007; Zahradnik and Raulf, 2017), relinquishment of the cat has sometimes been the only option for affected individuals and their families.

Now there’s a safe and proven approach that uses an egg product ingredient in cat food to neutralise the major cat allergen, Fel d 1, at its source in cats’ saliva before it gets into the environment (Satyaraj et al., 2019a; Satyaraj et al. 2019b).

This Purina Institute symposium focuses on the science of human allergy to cats and approaches that help manage cat allergens.
