I must have missed something, sorry. What I saw Amanda say was; "She was diagnosed with severe anemia back at the beginning of March. She rebounded but not completely. Recently, her breathing has become a bit more labored." This indicated to me that the severe anemia had responded once, and that at this point, I didn't think that there had been a CBC done recently. Again, my apologies. I wanted to encourage and support Amanda, but since Polli has been confirmed as severely anemic (HCT 10-15, I believe) and no treatment is planned, then yes, euthanasia is probably best. I had thought that the anemia related to FeLV was less well understood. I'll keep researching. I'm so sorry.
