Feline pancytopenia update
Vets are being urged to log suspected cases via the RVC's online survey.
RVC now aware of 480 cases in the UK.

More than 480 cats in the UK are now known to have contracted feline pancytopenia.

In its latest update, the RVC said that it is aware of 480 cases of the condition, with a 63.4 per cent mortality rate at the time of reporting. The figures are based on cases treated in RVC’s hospitals and information provided by a small number of vets across the UK.

The RVC notes that the data probably only represents a percentage of cases, as many cats may not be presented to a veterinary practice and/or investigated by a vet. 
Veterinary professionals are encouraged to log suspected cases via RVC's online survey.
