Anemia is caused by the loss or destruction of a large amount of red blood cells, which can happen in the case of an infection with some viruses or parasites, certain immune-mediated disorders, drug reactions, or a disease such as cancer. In this webinar Carolyn will be discussing how to diagnose anaemia in cats and what treatment options are available.
