Hi Tammy,

Anemia is fairly common in cats with CRF, although many cats don't get it at all and some will have only low-grade anemia requiring no treatment. For some reason, none of my CRF cats have had anything but very mild anemia.

Epogen does seem to work well in most cats, but occasionally it may not have any effect, or can even make the anemia worse. Rarely epogen can cause cats to have seizures.

To monitor anemia, it's easiest to keep track of the PCV, otherwise known as hematocrit. This should be checked often in an anemic cat so treatment can be started right away if it is needed.

Regards,
PHKitkat
