Polycythaemia

Polycythaemia (also called erythrocytosis) is a rare condition in cats where there are too many red blood cells in the body. The signs of disease are often vague so you might not recognise that there is a problem with your pet for some time. The problem might be diagnosed on a single blood sample but confirming the diagnosis can sometimes require repeated evaluation, and determining the underlying cause can be very challenging.
