|Hello! My name is Hazel- and recently I stopped playing, watching birds, and eating my food. I went to the vet and they found that my Red Blood Cell Count was at 5.9%- way below the 25-35% rate I should have.
I was rushed to get a blood transfusion and told I should get a bone marrow test- to check if the disease was related to my bone marrow. If it was not my bone marrow- I was told it was going to most likely be cancer- which for a young cat would be a bad result either way. My parents had a tough decision to make because the vet told us there was not a lot of hope.
I got a blood tranfusion and have been put on steroids and antibiotics. After my blood tranfusion my RBC went up to 16.9%- but then 48 hours later dropped to 8.7%. At home I've been way more playful- watching the birds, purring, and eating. My vet said that I should give the medicine some more time to see if that helps out since I am stable and acting like myself.
My parents are very worried and are doing whatever they can given their financial situation to try to save me. Does anyone have any suggestions to help with my case of anemia?!
