There are many possible causes of feline anemia. Therefore a diagnosis by a veterinarian is strongly advised to find and remove the cause.
My personal opinion is that a home treatment for cat anemia is only possible if the cause is a nutritional deficiency. For example iron deficiency. Some cases of feline anemia are caused by diets low in iron and other essential nutrients. If the building blocks for red blood cell production are missing there many be an underproduction of red blood cells resulting in anemia.
Accordingly if the cat is known with certainty to be entirely healthy but anæmic it may be reasonable to self diagnose and conclude that the diet is to blame. Reverting to a high quality wet cat food should resolve the problem. And there may some suitable supplements that a vet can advise. That is the only form of home treatment I can think of for this illness.
Causes of feline anemia are as follows:
Anemic cats may be chronically ill. The illness may mask the anemia. The signs of anemia are: lack of appetite, weight loss, sleep a lot, weakness, pale gums and tongue, possible rapid breathing and pulse in severe cases. A vet will have to diagnose any underlying illness.
You can see that in the case of feline anemia there is not much a cat owner can do by way of home treatments because you have to diagnose accurately the cause and this means seeing a veterinarian.
Note: ‘anemia’ can be spelt in three different ways: anemia, anaemia and anæmia.
