7th March

The vet phoned me today as he is quite worried about Phoebe. Her blood results confirmed that she has IMHA. Her PCV was at 9.1% when the blood was taken, this is the lowest it has been. The blood test results also showed no evidence of red-blood cell generation suggesting a bone-marrow problem. The vet has referred Phoebe to a specialist in Edinburgh.

We took Phoebe to Edinburgh to the small animal hospital. Phoebe is staying at the hospital for the next few days for some tests. Her PCV is now at 8%.
The vet will be carrying out a bone-marrow biopsy tomorrow morning, this will hopefully identify the cause of the IMHA.

Worrying times and a quiet house!
