Bailey had bartonella and he was on Zithromax for 6 weeks before it got better. Has your kitty been on doxocycline in case he has hemobartonella? Tests for this almost always come up with false negatives, sometimes cats have to be test 4 or 5 times or more to get an accurate test result. The doxy won't hurt him if he is really negative but may well save his life if he is testing false negative and really has it.

I personally will put ANY positive kitty on it no matter what the test says to be on the safe side. Hemobartonella is a very common thing that positives get, it causes anemia and if left untreated WILL kill the kitty. Their anemia will just keep getting worse and worse until they die.
