I am sorry to hear Ruby is anemic. Have you got rid of the fleas?

Good he is eating and drinking. If the anemia is due to fleas, it should get better once you get rid of the fleas.

Were any blood tests done to check his kidney function, and thyroid level? There is medication for thyroid disease in older cats. Kidney disease can cause anemia in cats.

I have not heard from you; I hope Ruby is doing better.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
