We have had several cats present to the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals at the Royal Veterinary College in the past month with severe pancytopenia, with most having severe generalised bone marrow hypo- to aplasia. Some cats have presented at the same time from the same household. This presentation is very rare in our clinic, hence the clustering of these cases is concerning. Investigations in our cases have not revealed any identifiable underlying cause so far.
If you have seen similar cases recently, we would be grateful if you could fill out below survey as we are keen to identify any common denominator (e.g. toxic, infectious causes etc.).
