Feline Pancytopenia Q&As for pet owners
The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) are currently investigating a spike in cats presenting with the symptoms of pancytopenia. This is a condition which causes a deficiency in all types of blood cells. Symptoms can include fever, pale gums, blood in the urine and faeces and bleeding from the nose.
PFMA, alongside other organisations making up the SPS Certification Working Group, which includes food and feed trade associations, hauliers, farmers and veterinary and environmental health professional organisations have joined together to propose in a new report an urgent new veterinary agreement and streamlined processes to resolve crippling restrictions to exports to the EU, Britain’s largest trading partner.
