Here is how to help Bella IF she is anemic.

1. make sure she has no parasites like fleas, ticks or worms.

You can use Advantage sold OTC and a wormer sold at Walmart

2. feed her canned cat food or baby food meat with no onion powder. warm the food to bring out the aroma

3. boil calves liver and feed an ounce every other day.

If she gets dehydrated give her tuna water drained from the can.

Please let me know how she is doing .
