I will ask my vet first thing tomorrow about the epogen and prednisolone. His blood levels are at 11%, very low. As a matter of a fact, I may call the emergency clinic today and see what they recommend. I don't know what else to do. He's only 2 years old this month. You are sure that these meds.

You may want to go ahead with the transfusion to buy time, the epogen can take up to three weeks to work. With Bailey my vet feels it was mainly the prednisolone that helped with his anemia but we can't say for sure since he was on both. Bailey started epogen when his HCT was at 18%, it

Adding omega oils to the diet is supposed to help stop shedding. Fish oil, which you can get in capsules at the health food store, would work. My cats like salmon oil sqeezed from capsules into their food (just a few drops). Vomiting just after eating is often a sign of hairballs.
