Feline Infectious Anemia (FIA)

Feline infectious anaemia, also known as FIA, is an anaemia in cats caused by a blood-borne bacterial infection. If your cat is unwell and pale, it may be that it is anaemic, but there are many different causes of anaemia in cats and FIA is just one of these. Early recognition and treatment of FIA is important to maximise the chances of full recovery.
