The RVC has issued an update on the recent rise in cases of feline pancytopenia.
In the latest update, issued on Monday 13 September 2021, the RVC said that it is aware of 565 cases of the condition, with a 63 per cent mortality rate at the time of reporting.
Noting 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, the RVC is encouraging veterinary professionals to continue to log suspected cases via the RVC's online survey.
This update comes after an FSA investigation found no causative link between feline pancytopenia and the recalled cat food products. The investigation will continue in the form of a multi-agency approach.
