Marilyn, an infectious pneumonia isn't common in cats. Has any additional testing been performed - a complete blood count (CBC), testing for the feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), a diagnostic panel of blood and urine tests, for example? I would be pleased to review any test results you could upload to our conversation. I particularly need to know if Rocky's anemia is regenerative (he can replace the red blood cells he lacks) or, instead, is non-regenerative (he's unable to replace the red blood cells he lacks) and just how severe his anemia is.

Hi Marilyn,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Rocky Raccoon. How is everything going?
