Many things can cause anemia in positives and negatives, just because a cat is positive and becomes anemic doesn't mean the reason for it shouldn't be sought and treated. One likely cause for a cat to become anemic is hemobartonella which is extremely difficult to test for ... I know more than one cat that would be dead if their owner had not insisted on treating with doxocycline even when the test said more than once they were negative, I know one girl had to test her cat 5 times before they got a positive result, thank goodness the vet had the foresight to treat with doxy ... that cat is still alive.
Please ask your vet about doxy, it won't hurt if Buzzy is truly negative for hemobartonella but may well save his life if he is positive for it. -- Belinda happiness is being owned by cats ...
