Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

1) What cancer was your companion diagnosed with?
2) Do you have a copy of recent comprehensive blood work that was run?
3) Has your companion visited a veterinary oncologist?
4) When was the transfusion performed and when was the HCT last checked?
