I'm not sure if he was tested for hemobartonella or not. I'll have to do some research on that. Too late now for him but I'll definitely look into that since I have numerous leuk positives and would like to know more. > 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.
