Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

Is this a general question or is Mia sick?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes Mia is sick.The Blood Work shows low HCT & Hb,Also the BUN & Creatinine Are High.I am a veterinarian but this isn't something I'm familiar with
Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 6 years ago.
From not only the name listed above, but the CBC and Chemistry findings, my suspicion is that you are referring to feline Mycoplasma, otherwise previously known as Hemobartonella (now known as Mycoplasma Hemofelis)

This is treated with Doxycycline.
