Great news!Been a while but Trust is doing great 15 weeks since last depo shot and still holding strong in the 35 range, as of now no more vet visits unless we see something of concern, again thank you to everyone who continues to check in on him
Did you ever figure out what was causing his anemia? Did parasite tests come up negative? Did you do a bone marrow aspirate or sample? Sorry for all the questions. I'm trying to figure out if I need to know the cause or just start treating. I feel the vet is SLOW and I want him on meds. We're waiting for bloodwork from last Thursday and then we will do a bone marrow aspirate.Yeah the retics are new red blood cells being produced by the bone marrow. The Depo is a steroid that suppresses the immune system to help slow down the body destroying the rbc. The b12 is a vitamin that helps develop the immature rbc to mature rbc. if he is low on his retics the epogen may be something to look into to stimulate the bone marrow to produce new rbc. Now have they looked into what is causing the animia? We never really have narrowed Trusts cause down but suspect it is a blood paracite.
They have done a bunch of test they beleave it is an auto immune disorder where is body is attacking his red blood cells.
What is wrong with you. She said "THEY BELIEVE" and this was at the beginning, i was asking her what it ended up being because my cat has been sick. Go troll somewhere else, don't you have anything better to do than be obnoxious to people worried sick about their cats?!
