Wow, that is an extremely high cost for a transfusion, they are
rip offs, where do you live? I have gotten transfusions for under
$200.00. You may ask your vet about trying epogen, procrit or arsnap
all help with anemia. Bailey my positive was on epogen and prednisolone
when he was anemic. His HCT went from a low of 15 to 40 in 6 weeks.
He remained in the mid 30's the rest of his life. He died from
undiagnosed pancreatic cancer.
Do they know what is causing the anemia? Has he ever been on
doxycycline for 4 weeks minimum? Hemobartonella is almost impossible to
test for and many cats have been saved by being put on doxy even thought
they tested negative for hemo. From other lists I'm on I know of
several cats tested 4 or 5 times testing negative being put on doxy and
recovering ... obviously they had hemo but were testing negative. There
are other drugs in the tetroclycline family if Darcy can't tolerate
doxy, doxy is just thought to work the best.
Prayers coming to little Darcy and your family.
happiness is being owned by cats ...
