Has the vet put her on Doxoxycline, hemobartonella is a very common cause of anemia and positives get it frequently. Doxy will help get rid of it and if she doesn't have it won't hurt her but if she does, she will die if it isn't treated and the doxy may just save her life. Has she even been tested for hemo and if so did your vet let you know it is extremely difficult to get a correct test result for it, many cats test negative even thought they are positive and any good vet would almost automatically treat a positive for it if they are anemic to be on the safe side.
What does the vet say is causing the anemia? If he said the FeLV is causing it, run and find a new vet, anemia is NOT a symptom of FeLV, there are causes for it and you have to find the cause and treat it if that is possible, but just because a cat is positive doesn't mean it will get anemia and die, though you would never know if you talk to some vets. Many vets are not very interactive when it comes to treating sick positives because they don't think they should be allowed to live anyway, so when they do get sick they blame whatever it is on the FeLV. -- Belinda happiness is being owned by cats ... http://bemikitties.com http://BelindaSauro.com _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
