• Myelofibrosis and non-regenerative anemia

    From Laura Fenik@21:1/5 to All on Tue Jun 23 19:24:31 2020

    Our dear cat has been diagnosed with myelofibrosis and non-regenerative
    anemia. We've been to about six different veterinarians in three states.

    We are currently in southwestern Pennsylvania. We've been to a veterinary hospital in Pittsburgh plenty of times. Our cat has had seven blood transfusions.

    A bone marrow biopsy came back inconclusive due to scarring.

    Does anyone know of how to grow red blood cells in a cat with the above
    two diseases? How about a cure for myelofibrosis?

    Our female cat is almost seven years young. Subcutaneous darbepoetin has
    been tried unsuccessfully. Currently, our cat is on the following liquid medications via syringe: Sulcralfate, Omeprazole (Prilosec), Metronidazole (Flagyl), Prednisolone, Cyclosporine (Atopica), Mycophenolate, Gabapentin
    (as needed), Entyce (as needed), and subcutaneous fluids daily (Ringer's Lactate).

    If anyone could provide answers or point me in the right direction, I'd
    greatly appreciate it.
