I would consider trying pred and doxy too. My cat is nonregenerative (has been since at least Sept). His HCT isn't that low but while trying to find out why he was anemic, he did test positive for hemobart. I had lost a cat to anemia a few months before. He was completely fine and then

All kidney issue cats that become anemic are non regenerative and get epogen, it saves their lives. I know he isn't a kidney issues kitty but non regenerative is non regenerative!! -- Belinda happiness is being owned by cats ... http://bemikitties.com http://BelindaSauro.com

Doxy is one of the best drugs for a kitty with possible hemobartonella which positive kitties seem very susceptible to. There are other drugs in the tetrocycline family but doxy is the one usually used. There is another one that is used, it starts with an *I*, I can't remember the name of

PS. Doxy tastes bad so you have to make sure they don't get a taste of it or they will be impossible to pill. It took me a while to get the hang of pilling my furkids, Fred was really bad and hard to pill, but one day I just stopped thought about how I have seen the vet do (always so easy

My Kong has nonregen anemia and the FeLV has spread to his bone marrow. He is 3, and was diagnosed about 6 months ago. When I first took him to the vet, his rbc count was 7%. He had two blood transfusions, which helped immensely. Depending upon what your finances are like, maybe you could check

Right now they are both on the pred steroids.  I called the vet today and she said they were both negative for the hemobartonella.  So when she orignally put Brillo on doxy for a day it was before she got the negative test result for the hemo and had me take him off because of that result and

The hemobartonella test is very, very hard to get a positive result on, it has to be taken at the precise moment the bugs are acting up or it will give a negative result. I know more than one cat that was positive but tested negative 4 or 5 times before they finally caught it. Those cats

When I called they said they tested for the parasites that cause the hemo.  They didn't tell me the name of the test.  I looked at the paperwork and it says they did a Hematocrit (PCV) and Complete Blood Count (CBC).  All of these tests and information is new to me because my last vet gave up
