Myeloproliferative Disorders in Cats
Although no specific treatment has been developed for cats with myeloproliferative disorders, antibiotics are used to treat and prevent secondary infections. You may need to consult a veterinary oncologist for further evaluation and treatment, including the use of chemotherapeutic agents.
In severe cases, your cat may need to hospitalized and undergo fluids therapy and blood transfusions to correct dehydration and anemia, respectively. Unfortunately, the prognosis of cats suffering from these disorders is poor.
Living and Management
Regular blood testing and bone marrow examination is recommended during treatment to determine the cat's response to the therapy and the progression of the disorder. In addition, chemotherapeutic agents used in treatment are potentially toxic to humans and should only be after receiving instructions from your veterinarian.
