Who we areall about us

MVDr. Petra Černá MRCVS

I would like to welcome everyone on this website. My name is Petra and I´m a veterinary surgeon, currently working in UK and doing a Ph.D. at the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno. I am also a breeder of British Shorthairs since 2006 and I myself was very unlucky to have cats diagnosed with FIP and saw many cats being taken aways from us too early in life because of this terrible disease. This heartbreaking personal experience made me very interested in this horrifying diseases and I have been doing research on FIP for the past few years at my university as part of my diploma thesis and now continuing my project as Ph.D. student.
FIP is most often affecting pedigree cats in multi-cat households of young age so it is of a great concern for breedes. As we understand this disease better now than in the past, I believe there is a genetic predisposition to this disease and therefore doing more research about this disease is very important. If you ever have questions about FIP or coronavirus infections, please do not hesitate to contact me as I am more than happy to help anyone with the knowledge I have about FIP.

MVDr. Jana Bubeníková

My name is Jana and I am a newly graduated veterinarian. I graduated in June 2018 from the University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno and I have strated my Ph.D. in October 2018 in the Department of Animal Genetics at the same university.
The topic of my research is Molecular identification of genes associated with susceptibility to FIP.
I´m not professional cat breeder, but besides a horse and a dog I have one cat at home so I am interested in difficulties caused by this dreadful disease.

Hope for the Future!

We hope new studies will give hope for FIP in cats
