CBC if she's never had one. Otherwise, it probably depends on what the vet sees in her physical appearance. Have them check her teeth and gums, too. I hope Kitty is back to normal very soon. Lance On Aug 6, 2013, at 8:55 AM, Maryam Ulomi ava...@gmail.com wrote: Hi everyone, I hope

the problem with PCR tests is that none, as far as i know, have proven to be consistently valid and reliable, at least in this country. i know that they've been trying to create a reproducible test that can be counted on, but so far everything i've read has shown the same sorts of problems:
