This is the unsponsored, independent web site of the Advisory Board on Cat Diseases
The ABCD is a scientifically independent committee whose activities have been supported by Merial, and, since 2017, by Boehringer Ingelheim. The authors (Board members) received no grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial or non-for-profit sectors for their ABCD activities, nor have they any conflicts of interest to declare.
Guidelines have been issued on the following feline infectious diseases and their causative agents...
Fact sheets are two-page abstracts highlighting the main data contained in the ABCD guidelines.They are intended for use by veterinary practitioners for quick and easy reference during vaccination consultations or telephone queries...
Guidelines produced by expert boards are evidence based and take into account the latest scientific knowledge. This means they have to be updated on a regular basis. So far, ABCD has published 45 guidelines on viral, bacterial, fungal, protozoan and helminthic feline diseases and it is working hard to keep them updated. Additionally, 4 new guidelines – including one on the vaccination of immunosuppressed cats – are currently in the making and will be available online in the coming months. The fact sheet series, which is greatly appreciated by practitioners, also continues to expand: this year alone, already 10 new fact sheets have been produced and are available on our website.
ABCD will hold its next meeting at the end of May, to allow scientific exchange and discussions, with the aim to improve its guidelines and fact sheets, update them according to the latest scientific state of knowledge and to identify new areas of interest for practitioners.
Upon a joint initiative of veterinary clinicians, scientists and an industry sponsor, the Advisory Board on Cat Diseases (ABCD) has been constituted. Its objectives are to establish a rational base for vaccine use in the cat and to publish its conclusions for the companion animal practitioners’ scene. It it achieving this goal by organizing conventions, at which specific issues are scheduled, discussed and agreed upon. The objective is to define a code of practice that reflects the present state of vaccinological knowledge.
In 2005, the European Advisory Board on Cat Diseases (ABCD) held its first meeting in Lyon, France. Its mission statement and aim specified to communicate scientific developments in feline infectious diseases and to establish a rational base for cat disease prevention and control.
