St. Louis Cat Clinic has enrolled it's first cat in an anemia study clinical trial using a new medication to resolve chronic anemia especially in cats with kidney insufficiency. All exams, blood and urine tests, and medications are covered by the study. An owner has to keep a log at home of observations.
If you have a cat with kidney insufficiency that you know is anemic, please call the clinic at 314-832-2287 for a screening appointment. Help your cat and help get a new medication approved for use in cats.
Cats cannot have had a blood transfusion, be on corticosteroids, or be on any chemotherapy medications. The kitty must be eating and stable to be enrolled.
