just got an email from a rescue i work with, about someone who adopted a FeLV positive a few months ago. kitty is NOT doing well--with a hematocrit of 8. she asked her vet about doing a transfusion, and he said that's not done with FeLV cats. well, other than getting a new vet, i'm asking you guys for help. (he's also saying it could be whatever-they're-now-calling-hemobartenellosis.) i've got all the info from the rescue, and the contact info of the cat's mom.
i know that some of you have experience with this, which i do not: if any of you are willing/able to help walk lisa (the human) and josie (the cat) through this, please let me know! feline anemia boards? i've suggested she check www.adopt.bemikitties for local vets (she MAY be in the miami, FL area, but not sure on that yet--that's where the rescue is), as well as amer assn of feline practitioners for a vet near her, but i think that talking with someone who knows what they're talking about would be a big help..... thanks!
