|I found a place called Tanya's Place. It is where cats have difficulty with renal disease. I found something that may interest you. Here it is:
If your cat has PCV below 20%, the anaemia is a more urgent problem and you need to act quickly. However, you will probably be considering the use of Erythropoiesis Stimulating Agents (ESAs) (Epogen, Aranesp etc), which only work for non-regenerative anaemia; and in view of the risks associated with this treatment, you might wish to have the reticulocyte test done to be sure you really are dealing with non-regenerative anaemia.
Having said that, my vet felt it was more important that we start treating Thomas as quickly as possible, so we began using an ESA immediately rather than wait several days or more for the results of a reticulocyte test.
It looks like something that you may want to consider before giving wings to Belle. Most cats who have this have kidney problems. Please check it out....
