Hemoglobin and Myoglobin in Urine in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Medications prescribed will depend upon your veterinarian’s final diagnosis of what is underlying the symptoms. If the condition is severe, your cat will be hospitalized for stabilization and fluid rehydration.

 

Living and Management

 

Your veterinarian will advise you on when you will need to return with your cat for follow-up appointments. There may be further need for a blood chemistry profile, a complete blood count, urinalysis, packed cell volume (PCV) test, and an arterial blood gas analysis. Genetic diseases are generally incurable, but can sometimes be managed by taking certain precautions with the animal. For example, neonatal isoerythrolysis, a congenital condition which results in the destruction of red blood cells, can be prevented by not allowing kittens with type A or AB blood to nurse from a type B queen (mother).
