Hemobart is short for Hemobartanellosis. It's usually now called Mycoplasma 
Hemofelis. It's a blood parasite, and causes anemia in cats. Mostly thought to 
be from fleas and ticks. It is often asymptomatic unless combined with some 
other disease process, so may go undiagnosed. Treatment can be with a 
tetracycline (usually doxycycline) or some florquinilones (Baytril/Zenequin).
